We went to Apex as a part of our walking tour of beer venues in the SE. We were there on a Tuesday, shortly after noon. It is on a interestingly busy little corner, with Beermongers, Los Gorditos, and Double Dragon. Lots of outdoor seating with large umbrellas. Heading inside with the "open to the outside" seating was cool.

That tap list was stacked after their anniversary event over the weekend. We had the Boneyard Nefarious, 6oz for $5 and the Boneyard Armoured Fist CDA Both big beers. Sippers. Awesome chance to try there two beers.

Atmosphere and service here did not impress us at all. Although we were greeted when we came in, of course we needed a minute to study the tap list. After that we were left hanging a little longer than we would have liked. The bartender was busy doing chores. We chose to sit out at the picnic tables 'cause we just weren't feeling the heavy metal music indoors. We decided to move on after one beer since there are so many places, too little time.

If you don't like this place, you hate beer and life. Summer time - doors rolled up, hard rock & "metal" (ahem, not REAL metal, but anyways), huge patio area out front on Division Street, beer selection. Cash only, I do believe, but they have an ATM for your "convenience". While you're there, ya gotta make time for the Beer Mongers across the street - bottle shop that reeks of awesome, & ya might even catch a li'l badass young jazz trio freestylin' some jams. Miss Apex and you miss out. When in PDX, this is at the top of your list (if you love beer like you think you do). Portland = BEER, and Apex is the apex of beer in Portland, jus' sayin'. God I miss PDX in the worst way :(
