I stopped in at the Wine & Beer Haus while driving through Seaside yesterday. It was not my destination, but I happened to see it at the side of the road so I had to stop and have a look.

The store is pretty small; your basic strip-mall storefront. The front of the shop is mostly wine with a few tables toward the rear, and 5-6 refrigerator cases at the back of the store for beer. There were probably 200 or so selections when I was there. The selection wasn't particularly wide or deep; I'd say it was that of a very good grocery store beer aisle. That said, it is probably the best selection in Seaside.

The woman who helped me was friendly and knowledgeable. I see from the other reviews that there are often tastings and events; sadly, none were happening while I was at the store.

All in all, it's a good place to go if you are doing the Oregon coast and need to grab a few craft brews; however, it's not much of a destination in itself.

This beer store is located in a strip mall right off the 101 in Seaside. Parking is plentiful in the lot.

The store sign evokes more of a child's store than a wine/beer store, but aside from that minor distraction the inside is stocked with beer on the left side, with the rest of the store devoted to wine and other adult beverages. Some meads were in stock as well. Behind the counter there is also a cooler with a couple taps in it.

As for the beer selection, it is not huge but it is well thought-out. Beers from the Pacific NW like Caldera, Rogue and Deschutes are all present. Some singles are available as well. Going back to the taps, those are reserved for "beer club" members who complete their tour.

Service was friendly on a slow weekday. The woman behind the counter was helpful with beer recommendations and also gave travel tips for the area.

Overall this stop is easy to make and worthwhile on a trip to this small city on the coast.

I grew up in this little town and for me this was by far the best selection I had ever seen of rare beers.

They continue to carry great names, some of which are widely available here in california and some which are even hard to find here. I remember some of their better brands were dogfish head, flying dog, pike brewing, RR, some good ones from deschutes, rogue, north coast, and then some other german and belgian stuff, but I don't remember too many specifics.

There are a couple of employees who have extensive knowledge of both beer and wine, and some younger ones that don't. It's kind of hit or miss.

They are a little more pricey than say a grocery store or bevmo, but on the other hand they have a much better selection and offer quite a few 12oz singles of good stuff. Also the only other choice would be safeway or driving into pdx.

Stumbled upon this store while visiting the Oregon Coast and doing a little shopping at the outlet mall there. Wasn't expecting much from this, thought I would just walk in and check it out. To tell the truth I really didn't think they would have any beer at all. As I got closer I see an Alaskan Amber neon sign in the window. Was pleasantly surprised when I got inside that they not only had beer but they had a pretty damn good selection of beers. Had a lot from the NW region as well as some pretty good imports. Very surprising, not what I was expecting at all.

This place is easy to find, in an outlet mall on Highway 101 which bisects the wonderful Oregon Coast resort town of Seaside. I went with my wife and 4 month old daughter while on a week long vacation away from Seattle in early December 2005.

One of the owners, a school teacher, engaged my wife in conversation and cooed over my daughter while I spent about 20 minutes perusing their selection of many hundreds of beers. I ended up getting a Scottish pine ale, a Montanan winter cranberry ale (lauded by the proprietor), a Stone Vertical Epic 2005, Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout, etc...I was in heaven in more ways than one.

The staff was very helpful, knowledgable and laid back. Everyone was at the wine bar/checkout counter, sipping wine and shooting the shit.

Excellent selection of beer (plus wine) and friendly, knowledgable staff - what more can you ask for to help ward of a winter storm on the great Pacific Coast of Oregon?

If you live or visit the Northern Oregon Coast or Southwest Washington this is the place to go for craft beer. The next closest place is the drive to Portland, at least two hours.

Their coolers have over three hundred beers. If the spouse wants to shop the Factory Outlet Mall and you want to enjoy beer. This is the place. They have booths and food next door. They know their beer and wine and keep up a great conversation.

Jeff and Jon are always searching for new additions and it is always a surprise to see what new stuff comes in each week. If there is something you want and they can get it from the distributor they will do their best to get it in for you.

If you happen by on the first sunday of most months they have a free beer tasting. These feature a brewery and many times have a brewer or distributors rep and perhaps a few give-a-ways.

They also have the "Hall of Foam" a recognition for those folks who have bought for take out or drinking in the store 100 or more beers. The new initiates are treated to a party. And from time to time they have special after hours tastings of rare beers. The last was a vertical tasting of Samiclaus. This included three years of the pre 2000 product.
