If I leaved nearby I couldn't pay my rent. Thank god I only get to visit this gem once a year when I visit my brother in Portland. Fantastic service. Fantastic selection. Fantastic prices. Even bottle shop should visit this place and take note.

Visiting my cousin in Portland and he knew I was a fan of beer, so I was directed here. At first glance it looks small, with a strange assortment of international foods on the wall and bottles in the corner, but upon closer inspection I found one of the best selections I've found in the US. There is a big concentration of West Coast breweries, but also an amazing selection of hard-to-find (Des Rocs Imperial Tripel) and discontinued (St Feuillien Tripel) Belgian beers. The service is terrific as well. The owner takes you around and tells you how its organized, but this is easy to do on your own as its only single bottles on the floor (the rest is kept in the back) with prices clearly marked. He is great at giving suggestions too. What a great place!

I have been to Portland only once, but from what I have heard this is THE place to buy beer in Portland. It sure seems that way - I went completely bugflip and spent more than $140 stocking up on brewskis to bring back to Atlanta, including extras to trade or share. Their beer selection is first-rate, and their service is outstanding. The fellows there were very happy to point me towards the best beers from Oregon, and help me load up my little ol' Ford Focus with enough beer to get Godzilla making Virginia fence. This is a must whether you live in Portland, or pay a visit there!

A beer lover's dream - wonderful selection of beer, one of the best. After moving from Portland, OR to Portland, ME, I was in need of a NW beer infusion. The people at Belmont Station worked with me and I recieved four cases of NW Christmas beer in early December - I'm still holding some for next (this) year.

I always make a stop at Belmont Station and Horse Brass when I am in Portland, and never have been disappointed. Yes, John's Market has more beers, but the storage of beers in the back cooler insures freshness. Also the staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
I recently noticed that some of the beer is of the collectable/archiveable variety. Fish brewing Leviathan and Poseidan (in 1.5L) were from 2002 (not made in 2003). Some of the belgians are also older (read better and more balanced).
To quote the Beastie Boys, this is one place you need to "Ch-check it out."

Outstanding bottle shop with top notch tap selection. Had two PtE and an Italian sandwich for under $20. Bottle selection second to none and priced. Dry well. A must stop in Portland.

I didn't get a chance to visit Belmont station, but thanks to the BA directory, I was able to tell my parents where to find good beer in Portland to bring home to Vancouver, BC. (such a good kid, huh?). They have about 1200 beers at any given time and, according to my Dad, they have everything grouped by region with a big Oregon section (understandably). My Dad picked up Supplication, Sanctification, and Damnation from Russian River, as well as Sublimely Self-Righteous from Stone Brewing for me. I'm not sure how big of a deal this is to folks in the U.S. but it's a big deal to me as I can't get any of these beers in BC. Pretty stoked to try these....

Hands down THE best shop in Portland. Only possible gripe is some of the selection is scattered, but if you bring in your list (they have a list online updated every Tues and Fri), the staff knows exactly where to find all of the beers. Cash price is cheaper than debit. Cream of the crop in the city.

Not real sure how you could say something negative about this place. Visited here from Georgia over the summer. Absolutely ridiculous selection. The best part was grabbing a pint from the bar and then just wandering around in the tiny store looking at all the beer. Staff was friendly and super knowledgeable. Went here five times in seven days while in Portland. Great spot to grab a pint or to pick up some of the best beers from the northwest.
