Summary: Small taproom feel, great bottle selection, great taps.

You Portlandians are so spoiled. Not only are there outstanding bottle shops strategically located around the city, but they serve beer, too! I don't go to Portland as often as I'd like, but when I do, I try to bring home a bomber or two (or 20, as it were, on this trip). BeerMongers is the second such establishment I've been able to visit this year (I was at Belmont Station in February or March). BeerMongers was a nice contrast. The small West Coast taproom vibe of BeerMongers distinguishes it from Belmont Station's East Coast neighborhood bar/liquor store feel. If I wasn't meeting a colleague for lunch, I would have stuck around long and sampled what they had on tap. I had superb service from both places. The the lone salesperson at BM was able to help me pick out a good representation of exactly what I was looking for. And, as selection goes, there was more than enough to keep me happy. I was focused on the local and small distribution breweries, but there were many others US and non-US beers that would have made it to my checked baggage, if I had infinite room, beer fridge space, and money (like Russian River, Uinta, and Southern Tier, none of which I can get back home).

Maybe it's a good thing I don't get here too often. I'd be fatter (and poorer) than I am now. Definitely a place worth returning to.

fun spot. smaller than some other bottle shops but the cases are "Stacked" with nice stuff. The few taps are always pumping rare shit.

Another stop while in Portland. This place appeared to be more of a local joint. Bottle selection was great. They had several beers that Belmont Station did not have. Slightly higher prices though. Staff was friendly once you got them talking.

Good bottle selection. Good prices. Staff member was helpful. Good location. Brought home a few bottles that I can't get in Chicago.

Did not have exactly what I was looking for but got me some awesome local stuff.
Lots of floor to ceiling coolers. Easy to browse with a lot of cold, ready to drink brews.

This place is across the street from Apex bar so we couldn't let it go. I think this was the fourth or fifth bar/beer store we visited in one day. Fun!

BeerMongers is kind of like Belmont, without the attitude. "No-nonsense", they say. Indeed. Friendlier folks, lower prices, a more convivial atmosphere. Eight taps at the bar, including Unibroue, Espresso Yeti, Carlton Bourbon Cider, Pelican Sea Hops, Laurelwood IPA. They are served in a variety of glasses, from 4 ounces to a 64-oz growler, and from two dollars to thirteen.

Chill on a Saturday night, the bar was full so we sat at the tables between the bar and the beer coolers. These are divided by styles and had some real goodies, including Eclipse Fifty Fifty, Brewdog Tokio, Boulevard barrel-aged RIS and Alesmith barrel-aged bottles. At $34, the Alesmith was six dollars cheaper than at Belmont, and those Eclipses were $25 a piece.

Super friendly service, all smiles. Great low prices. If they had a bit of a broader selection, BeerMongers would achieve beery nirvana.
