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.

Maybe my favorite place in town to grab a beer. Awesome selection of bottles at affordable prices either to go or to drink in shop. Tap selection is also very good, with usually some unique and diverse options. Service is usually pretty good, but there are some bartenders who are more friendly than others. Overall, a pretty laid back place to get a beer with friends.

Good beer geek vibe, good but not large selection of bottles (stored in cool fridges) and craft drinks on tap with friendly service. The thing that makes this place stand out is it has lower prices on bottles to go than any other bottles shop in town.

Overrated. Worthless, customer service. Disappointing selection. Reasonable prices but on beer that I find undesirable.

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.
