#684 Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri from Oslo, Norway
Score: 3.6 | Atmosphere 8 | Selection 8 | Value 4 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
Hahahaha, how do you call a micro beer bar in Oslo value? Ever? Well relatively this place has great prices, swill down the street costs pretty much the same for a pint, $16-$20 CAN.

One of the owners or managers was doing a tasting on the patio with some other staff, and came out when he was off duty to direct us confused Canadians to a table and helped us order. The beers we're fantastic, an American Style DIPA, a Sour and a couple stouts. 5 Beer + $108 CAN after tip. Wow!

Didn't eat, the patio in the summer on a fairly busy pedestrian street near to an awesome bustling park and city hall was great in the evening. Inside had reasonable atmosphere but nothing to write home about. The second best in Oslo, but probably best for international selection.

#683 The Beermongers from Portland, OR, United States
Score: 4.1 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 10 | Value 9 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
The selection is not huge but everything is gold! Amazing belgian and other Euro selection. Really friendly store clerk, forgot his name, an owner though. He recommended a couple of the Guezes they carried so I bought them all. I supposed the Canadian price tags might make me biased but the prices here we're more than fair, though I have to admit price was not something I was too concerned about when I started drooling upon cresting the front door. A must stop. The store owner was even gracious enough to encourage me to check out Saraveza next time I was in town.

#682 Green Dragon Bistro & Brewpub from Portland, OR, United States
Score: 3.9 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 8 | Value 9 | Service 8 | Overall 8 |
MY first bar in Portland, drove straight from Kamloops right into these doors. The place was larger than I expected. Its an old commercial building with polished concrete floors, big windows into the brewery and mostly picnic tables indoors. Big outdoor space which was used for some events (like Killer Beer Weeks Pumpkin Smashing).

I will explain my rating this way, I would start at 10/10 and take a couple points off for these things:

-small single bathroom for very large and crowded place.
-50 beers on tap and no coors, happy with that, although we had a couple craft beers that night that we're really less than drinkable, so perhaps the quality control isn't as reflective as all the beers.

Otherwise the take home bottle selection was good, some Old Numbskulls from Alesmith being probably the rarest of the bunch.

The food was good, pub food. Our server was good at telling us which beers we're not good, and she knew her beer. I do not know if this is normal.

Beer in America is so cheap, I would call this good value at 4.50 a pint, but I heard people tell me that wasn't as good as I thought.

I will return next visit to Portland as their will also be some fantastic and rare beers on tap, however this is not the pinnacle of beer bar experiences.

#681 Belmont Station from Portland, OR, United States
Score: 3.3 | Atmosphere 6 | Selection 9 | Value 7 | Service 5 | Overall 6 |
I went there on my recent biking beer bender. Aka, cream ale and cranks. or Bikes and Bitter, or Pedals and Porters. There was more names, don't remember them all. Anyways, this store had a ridiculous international section, particularly rare Brit (JW Lees, Traquair, lots of em), Scandinavian and Mediterranean brews. Almost as expensive as Canada, but they also had a 99 cent bin which was well utilized. Good place for sure!

#680 Noble Pig Brewhouse, The from Kamloops, BC, Canada
Score: 3.2 | Atmosphere 7 | Selection 6 | Value 9 | Service 4 | Overall 6 |
The Pig has a definate Earls/Joeys vibe that attracts alot of non-beer drinkers, but is genuinely nice place to be in Kamloops. The beer selction is good, but the quality is not super consistent, one batch of mocha perter will be a 4.2 and the next only a 2.8. I put this down to a new brew pub and figuring out the clientele. The selection is good, and 6 seasonals are reasonable at this point. $5 a pint is cheap in my books. The amount of ceasers and wine on tables is unfortunate though, there is no selling of beers, and servers have no beer interest or knowldge, just big boobs. oh well
