fun spot. smaller than some other bottle shops but the cases are "Stacked" with nice stuff. The few taps are always pumping rare shit.

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.

I liked it. Caddy-cornered from Apex, you'd be extremely remiss to NOT stop in here (like watching a twenty dollar bill blow past you without even an effort spent to bend and snatch it). On my visit, there was a badass young trio of musicians bashing out some funky jazzy instrumentals, so the vibe was rocking. That said, not a place I'd wanna spend the entire night at. Service seemed nondescript, though the bottle selection was very satisfactory. What you do: spend your time at Apex, then drop by here to find a couple of nice bottles to take home.

Good bottle selection. Good prices. Staff member was helpful. Good location. Brought home a few bottles that I can't get in Chicago.

Did not have exactly what I was looking for but got me some awesome local stuff.
Lots of floor to ceiling coolers. Easy to browse with a lot of cold, ready to drink brews.

This place is across the street from Apex bar so we couldn't let it go. I think this was the fourth or fifth bar/beer store we visited in one day. Fun!

BeerMongers is kind of like Belmont, without the attitude. "No-nonsense", they say. Indeed. Friendlier folks, lower prices, a more convivial atmosphere. Eight taps at the bar, including Unibroue, Espresso Yeti, Carlton Bourbon Cider, Pelican Sea Hops, Laurelwood IPA. They are served in a variety of glasses, from 4 ounces to a 64-oz growler, and from two dollars to thirteen.

Chill on a Saturday night, the bar was full so we sat at the tables between the bar and the beer coolers. These are divided by styles and had some real goodies, including Eclipse Fifty Fifty, Brewdog Tokio, Boulevard barrel-aged RIS and Alesmith barrel-aged bottles. At $34, the Alesmith was six dollars cheaper than at Belmont, and those Eclipses were $25 a piece.

Super friendly service, all smiles. Great low prices. If they had a bit of a broader selection, BeerMongers would achieve beery nirvana.
