Belmont Station

April 1, 2010

On Tuesday, I said that By the Bottle was voted best beer store by the Northwest Brewing News Readers Choice Awards in the state of Washington for 2009. So who took the award for Oregon? That distinction goes to Belmont Station in Portland.

Belmont Station is a little bit bigger than By the Bottle, though it doesn’t seem to have quite the beer selection. It does, however, give the option of buying the beer as a six pack rather than individual bottles. Also, they give a slight discount when using cash for purchases.

For the non-beer drinker, they have a large selection of six pack ciders such as Wyder, Ace, Woodchuck, and Newton’s Folly. Both of Oregon’s cider makers area also represented, but none of the craft ciders from Washington. They do seem to have a larger selection of mead that I have seen other places, though most still seem to be coming up out of California.
