BeerMongers is great! I like the new trend in Portland, and perhaps other places?, of the combo beer bar and bottle shop. This one happens to be at the same intersection as Apex, a new beer bar with solid selection and fair prices. But a strange vibe, at the Apex (to me) has sent me across the street to BeerMongers when I'm in the area.
I think there are just 4 taps, maybe 6? Unique, quality, local stuff. Staff are awesome and knowledgeable. Selection is something like 500 bottles, sold at retail prices but can be consumed on site. Staff open for you but no corking fee. Pretty sweet scenario, if you ask me. And prices? The 2006 Pannepot that was $9 at Belmont Station (love the place) was $6.20 at The BeerMongers. So my advice is see if BeerMongers has it first, then go on over to Belmont.
I just like to visit Portland, don't live there. But I'm saying this is a "don't miss" for the beer geek in PDX.
