I've been to The BeerMongers a couple of times now and anticipate myself returning in the future. Relatively small bar area with four to five taps at any given time, which rotate frequently. A couple of comfortable chairs and some reading material, in addition to a big screen TV which is usually streaming a sports event.
There's a usually a tasting event every weekend which is pretty cool. A couple of times it was promoting smaller brewers from the Portland area and one time it was a mixed of international and domestic beers. It can get pretty busy when these events reach their apex but it's never been uncomfortably crowded.
As others have commented, the individual who runs the place (or at least is always there when I go) is stellar. I believe his name is Sean/Shawn but I'm not 100% sure on that. He's always been down-to-earth and willing to strike up a conversation, no matter the topic.
The beer selection is pretty good and the prices are tough to beat anywhere else. Usually one cooler for each primary classification of beer (IPA, stout, porter, etc.). There are about nine or ten coolers in total; four or five of those primarily stock the international variety. I usually go to only buy bottles but I end up hanging out for a few beers and striking up conversation with the others present at the time.
