Belmont Station: "the place to find special beers" Portland Shopping Tip by richiecdisc
Portland Shopping: 81 reviews and 94 photos
Belmont Station has long been regarded as Portland's best retail outlet for beer. It was located next to the Horse Brass Pub when I first visited there in 1994 but has expanded not only in size in the retail realm but also as a specialist beer cafe in its own right. They still have an amazing array of beers for sale to go but now they also have a small Belgian style cafe serving 16 draft beers and one hand cask. It is quite busy with a real neighborhood bar feel to it.
What to buy: We found lots of interesting bottles for the cooler including some more Alaskan Smoked Porter we had found on the Oregon coast the week before and Stone's Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout. I just had to have one in the very crowded pub. It turned out to be a sour beer tasting festival and I had a very tart local lambic style beer. It was a bit too crowded to take notes so the name of the beer escapes me but it was refreshing. This is a pub I would have liked to check out more if I had more time in town.
Address: 4500 Stark Street
Directions: Stark Street is parallel to Belmont and Belmont Station is in the same block as Horse Brass so basically around the corner from their original location.
