I've been to this place a couple times. I will hit it any time I'm in Eugene. One of the coolest beer stores/pubs I've been to. In an area of downtown thats fairly close to the university. The last time I went there it was around dinner time and it was standing room only, I ended up just grabbing some beers to go. The selection is excellent, over 1000 beers I think somebody there told me. Lost of beers from the region and beyond...lots of Belgian/German beers as well. Ate here once and it was real good as well, everything seems to be fairly priced. If you love beer and are in Eugene you need to check this place out.

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.

We stopped in for a weekend dinner. Order food and beer upfront and go find a seat. It's a fairly big area with a square bar in the middle of a dining area and a pool table on the side. They had 20-some taps, including a cider and two nitros; and there's a bunch (100s?) of bottles in upright coolers to have there or take-away. The pretzel, beer cheese, fries and mac & cheese were delicious. If you want more beer for food after your initial order just text it to the bar without having to get up into line again. Well worth going out of your way for.

A few friends brought me to this place while I was visiting them in Eugene. Apparently it's the new location. It clean, spacious and super inviting. They have a great beer selection, both on tap and in bottles. The drafts are listed on a big screen behind the counter, while all the bottles are easily viewable in their stand up coolers. I sampled a few beers before going with a porter, which was good, although I am ashamed to admit I don't remember the name. (this was a few weeks ago). We all ordered food as well, which was better than standard bar fare. I got a grilled cheese sandwich with tomatoes and peppers. My friend got a half order of nachos. Half order was huge. Her boyfriend got a club sandwich that was pretty good as well.

The best part about the place was definitely the atmosphere. Although they didn't really have mood lighting it felt very cozy. It was like sitting at your kitchen table drinking with friends. There isn't loud music blaring. Just a bunch of friendly folks milling around or sitting down chatting. The fire place was warm, and the décor entertaining.

my only regret... we had all partied too hard the night before and only stayed at the Stein for a beer. I would love to go back and spend an entire evening.

The Bier Stein is like a night club for beer enthusiasts. It has a loud, busy, atmosphere that is created mostly by people milling around and conversing rather than loud music or TVs. I was down there for the Corvallis Beer Tap Takeover and for a Thursday, the place was packed! Although there was a special event, I did not get the impression that this was out of the ordinary. The service was great, I was super impressed how quickly and efficiently the food runners found the customers despite being only marked by as number in very crowded restaurant. It was the first time I visited the pub in that location, but am very much looking forward to going back.

The atmosphere was very nice, comfortable casual, tables were wood tops with coasters in resin. Beer decor on walls, pool table in back with small patio in front. Quality was above average with a little taken off because there were no towels in Ladies room. Towel dispensers were empty. Clean restaurant and restrooms. It would be nice to have ice tea spoons for the ice tea also. My short handled spoon disappeared when I accidently let go of the handle while stirring. Service was great, you order your food and beer at the counter and then staff brings it to you at your table. Wait staff was friendly, helpful and service was prompt. Their beer selection was above great. They had Pliny on tap, not easy to find these days. The bottle selection was interesting and many hard to find beers were available. Perfect rating is earned.We all had sandwiches but there were also starters, salads and soups on the menu. I had the Love me Tenderloin sandwich which was delicious, others in our group had the Pizzaini, Grilled Cheese, Father Guido Sarducci, Turkey and Bacon. The only one that didn't use the word delicious was the Grilled Cheese. It looked really good but was said to need salt. It had four different cheeses! The french fries were possibly the best I've ever had, I ate every one of them. Value, food was very reasonable while the beer was a little more expensive.

In town for one night while driving from Texas to Everett. Saw their list online and the hotel was only a few blocks away so the girlfriend and I stopped by for dinner. Place was packed for a Tuesday but quickly got a table after ordering. Beer bottle selection was awesome, price slightly high but for the availability extremely worth it. Tap list was acceptable but I didn't see anything amazing. The GF appreciated the wine list and liked the atmosphere which was great for a beer bar. I think his name was David but our bartender who took our order was great. Love talking with other beer people.

What this place lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in many other ways. The staff are top notch and very knowledgeable. Their bottle selection if awesome for Eugene! Once they move into their new digs in early 2013 they'll have 30 taps and even more bottle selection! Can't wait!
