One of my favorite beer bars in Portland. The selection is fantasic while the environment is very modest and laid-back. The bartender was awesome and made us feel very welcome even though I was with a minor (something I found was not usually the case in Portland bars; a result of very strict drinking laws, I imagine). I recommend Belmont Station as a must go to anyone looking for the best beer places in Portland.

Belmont Station was the first stop on our intense beer tour of Portland. And what a stop!
I entered through the "Bier Cafe", where the tap list is quite outrageous: HUB Kentucky Xmas, Struise Black Damnation, Blackberry Albert, Deschutes Black XXIII, Ninkasi Pravda, Goose Island Class of 88, Full Sail Imperial Porter '12... good shit! Bartenders are not the friendliest folks, but they are efficient enough. The bar section of the station is small and a bit cramped, but I still found room at the bar. The best is to go next door and browse for brews while drinking beer.
The retail area is also small but so chock-full of goodies, you won't believe it. There is a barrel-aged section, including Eclipse, Big Bad Baptist, Double DBA and Rye on Rye. Also a variety of Alesmith barrel-aged stuff and even a vintage shelf with a 2007 Abyss for 40 dollars.
Service here is much friendlier and helpful than at the bar. Prices are high, no doubt. Quality is obscene. This place is wow!
