Apex: a beer bar and bottle shop with a vibe in between a hipster and biker bar. They have some old pinball machines and a huge outdoor seating area. There is a large back wall of coolers full of aged and special release beers that you can buy to drink there or take home. Bottles of Cantillon and Eclipse were lurking in there, but with a hefty price tag attached. I had a tulip glass of Boneyard Brewing's Nefarious Triple IPA that is brewed specifically for them. It was like drinking a hoppy mango mimosa and I would put this beer up against Pliny the Younger and Heady Topper any day. I washed the beer down with a Pliny the Elder that tasted like hoppy water after that! Word to the wise, this joint makes you pay up as you order each beer...no tabs. They are also cash only--shocking if they want folks to put down $75 for a bottle of Cantillon!

Apex strives to be the Toronado of Portland. Good beer at a reasonable price, loud music, no BS, bring your own food. There is a giant outdoor seating area for when the weather is fine, and about 100 bike racks. Good selection of about 40 rotating taps, and a carefully selected menu of hard-to-find bottles.

Check the live beer menu on the website, it's the same as the one on screen at the bar. Good place to try a few, the prices are usually as good as it gets in Portland.

Please note the following prohibitions/unavailabilities at Apex:

- No minors
- No credit cards
- No smoking
- No dogs
- No table service
- No major sports on the TV
- No kitchen
- No car parking

If any of that is problematic for you, I'm sure Apex would be glad for you to take your business elsewhere.
