I love Belmont Station and, though I can get several of my favorite beers at the local specialty food store, I can't help myself from coming back to this small shop, time and time again. Whether it is their pretty extensive collection of American Micros and Belgians, the friendly and helpful staff, or just the pleasing, slightly air-conditioned place itself, Belmont Station is a must for people in Southeast Portland. As much as I've learned on this website, if not for this store, I would not have the practice to talk about beer and really feel like I'm learning.
Really, the ideal beer shop for me.

edit: the new store is amazing! i don't know if they've added to their selection, but with all the new, glass-door fridges it sure seems like it.
now, if only we could get some russian river up in portland...

Top notch beer top as store is open to 10 pm and the bar next door gets beer made for them, harder to find taps. Good service and selection. A commitment to craft.

Stopped in on the way out of town. Packed to the gills, regional and international beers. Tap room on the side, for more sampling. Very well curated selection.

Not gonna lie, I'm bias. Worked here for three years and loved almost every second of it. This place is hands down the best beer bar in Portland. Sit down, have a pint, take in the history, and have a cheese steak from out back while you're at it. Things could be worse.

My first stop in Portland 18/8/17
Thought I got us lost at first because it was a fairly residential neighbourhood but here we are. Selection is ridiculous, I did my research before showing up and still took a while. They got choices no doubt there, staff were great and helpful at every turn. My wife sat in the bar while I shopped, two dozen or so taps kept her busy while I shopped. Everything was as expected other then all the stock blocking the shelves, annoying for sure as I may have missed out on some hidden (literary) gems but that being said I blew my budget in minutes. About as good as it gets really other then the stacks of stock blocking the shelves.....

This place seems to be a mecca for more sought after beers. There seems to be a good selection of higher dollar bombers and a general focus on the higher end beers. This helps their selection, though I am not sure about the stores selection of "shelf beers." I wasn't really looking for shelf beers on my visit, so that worked for me.

The quality of beer was pretty high, given my perception of their focus, and their selection of the beers described is fairly extensive. I also witnessed multiple customers being helped in a very friendly manner by the store staff. Our experience at the tasting room was equally pleasant.

This is the second time I'd been to the store, and was very happy with my finds both times.

This was the first stop after landing at PDX yesterday before heading out to the Mount Hood area for the week.

Vibe was OK, store is fairly small considering the inventory carried.

Quality was excellent, top notch regional and national brews available.

Service was awesome from the two guys I dealt with. THe first guy, despite how busy they were, took time with myself and other customers to answer questions and provide recommendations.
The second guy who checked us out provided restaurant recommendations and provided lively conversation about the general scene in Oregon.

Selection was superb with a focus on Oregon brewers but top notch regional and national craft brewers were well represented.

This is a can't miss spot to hit, especially if you out of the northwest region of the country!

Great bottle with a really good NW / West Coast selection. Very helpful staff as well. The adjoining bar had a great tap list and a good vibe. Definitely worth a stop if you are in town.

Vibe was good and waitstaff really know their products on the bottle side and tap room. Service equally as good with recommendations and beer info provided when needed. Selection on bottle side is good (but not stellar in my opinion) but tap side is average (one plus was Pliny the Elder on tap for $5.50/pint).

So many bottles! And in such an orderly, well curated selection. This is how an amazing bottle shop should be--a wide range of bottles at all different price points, easy to find and navigate, with plenty of cold storage to boot. What makes them even better is this:
I came back for something I picked up early in my trip that my hosts drank, accidentally. It had sold out elsewhere. While the bar was still open the bottle shop had closed minutes before my arrival. The manager was able to grab my selection and then ring me up at the bar. Score! Day saved.

This place is always so fun to visit. I've lived in Portland 15 years & have been deeply connected with its beer serving establishments. This place is top shelf in my opinion. Great selection of beer from around the world in the store & an excellent selection of rotating taps at the pub. Great neighborhood hang out vibe & a beer lovers heaven. Outdoor tables available & the sandwiches have always been good. I love this place! Clearance beers for cheap & discounts if you pay with cash at the store. Mixed six packs are allowed, which is way cool. Go visit if you are in Portland.
