My aunt lives in Eugene and we were out visiting her when I discovered she is a closet beer geek. We started talking beer and she insisted we go to the Beer Stein for dinner the next day. A rather low key place not too far from the UofO campus. Walk in and there is a small bar on the right and a few tall tables to the left. Coolers along the back right wall, at least 8 of them. Open kitchen on the other side. Pretty small place and already had a good crowd at 5:15 on a Sunday. Have to do all of your ordering at the check out counter. About 8-10 taps with a few locals and Consecration...that made me pretty damn excited. Menu is typical pub grub with sandwiches and salads and a few other odds and ends. Passable sandwich but nothing great.

The bottle selection was great though. Huge selection of NW micros and a nice mix of California and other US stuff. Off the top of my head I remember Ninkasi, Midnight Sun, Alaskan, HUB, Russian River, Deschutes, Laughing Buddha, Pelican, DFH, Stone and North Coast. But that barely scratches the surface. Also had an excellent import selection including most of the trappists, Cantillon, Dupont and many more. Everything there can be purchased and consumed on site. Prices listed are for on site consumption and you get a discount if you are buying to take home.

By the time we left the place was packed with what mainly looked like locals. The folks sitting at the bar seemed to be regulars and the staff was chatting it up with them.

Certainly worth a stop if you are in Eugene. (1,532 characters)

This place is the best. When I moved to Eugene they were still in the little shop on 11th. Since then, they upgraded and expanded into their current location on Willamette. You go for the beer, but then you stay for the beer and food. Service is great, especially when the ewench system is working well. Pro tip: go grab your first beer and a menu, and open a tab. Then find a seat, peruse the menu, plan your next beer and place your order on your phone.

If you stand in front of the 1200 or so bottles they have for a minute or longer somebody is bound to ask you if you need any help. Super knowledgeable staff.

Throw in the pool table and big screen projector and you have yourself the perfect beer bar. (711 characters)

Man, this place was awesome. Folks in Eugene are so lucky to have this place. They have just about every Oregon beer you could want, then some. I was the first person in there, got helped by 3 different people. Had 2 more say hey as they walked by. Everyone was extremely helpful and nice. I got 6 high quality Oregon beers for $16, not bad at all. They check their ages on the IPAs too, so you don't have to. Go there if you're w/n an hour or so drive. Totally worth it. (471 characters)
