After visiting the Bier Stein for the past few years, I figured it was finally time to write a review.
The Stein is pretty damn unique in its set-up. Ten frequently rotating taps showcase the best of the local Oregon breweries along with a few awesome surprises from across the pond like some Aecht Schlenkerla, Karmelit, etc. While relatively small, it's one of the most solid tap lists I've seen. Always something unique, something I have yet to try, and always something that will please everyone at the table.
And if there's nothing on tap, then there are walls of coolers nicely organized where you can grab a beer from. And if you want to grab bottles to go, that's an option too, with to-go prices that are relatively comparable to the local markets.
Service is always top-notch. The guys know their stuff, know how to pour, and know how to handle it when it gets crazy busy (which is happening more frequently). They rinse every glass, will give samples without raising an eyebrow, and are all-around the best I've encountered.
The full-service kitchen does everything from daily soups and sandwiches to some pretty awesome nachos and hummus plate. Nothing out of this world, but for an establishment that's primarily a bottleshop/pub, the menu is solid.
After regularly visiting the Stein a few years ago and then moving away, I realized what a gem of a place it is - and a must-visit if traveling through the Wilamette Valley.

The Bier Stein is like a night club for beer enthusiasts. It has a loud, busy, atmosphere that is created mostly by people milling around and conversing rather than loud music or TVs. I was down there for the Corvallis Beer Tap Takeover and for a Thursday, the place was packed! Although there was a special event, I did not get the impression that this was out of the ordinary. The service was great, I was super impressed how quickly and efficiently the food runners found the customers despite being only marked by as number in very crowded restaurant. It was the first time I visited the pub in that location, but am very much looking forward to going back.

The atmosphere was very nice, comfortable casual, tables were wood tops with coasters in resin. Beer decor on walls, pool table in back with small patio in front. Quality was above average with a little taken off because there were no towels in Ladies room. Towel dispensers were empty. Clean restaurant and restrooms. It would be nice to have ice tea spoons for the ice tea also. My short handled spoon disappeared when I accidently let go of the handle while stirring. Service was great, you order your food and beer at the counter and then staff brings it to you at your table. Wait staff was friendly, helpful and service was prompt. Their beer selection was above great. They had Pliny on tap, not easy to find these days. The bottle selection was interesting and many hard to find beers were available. Perfect rating is earned.We all had sandwiches but there were also starters, salads and soups on the menu. I had the Love me Tenderloin sandwich which was delicious, others in our group had the Pizzaini, Grilled Cheese, Father Guido Sarducci, Turkey and Bacon. The only one that didn't use the word delicious was the Grilled Cheese. It looked really good but was said to need salt. It had four different cheeses! The french fries were possibly the best I've ever had, I ate every one of them. Value, food was very reasonable while the beer was a little more expensive.

In town for one night while driving from Texas to Everett. Saw their list online and the hotel was only a few blocks away so the girlfriend and I stopped by for dinner. Place was packed for a Tuesday but quickly got a table after ordering. Beer bottle selection was awesome, price slightly high but for the availability extremely worth it. Tap list was acceptable but I didn't see anything amazing. The GF appreciated the wine list and liked the atmosphere which was great for a beer bar. I think his name was David but our bartender who took our order was great. Love talking with other beer people.

What this place lacks in atmosphere it makes up for in many other ways. The staff are top notch and very knowledgeable. Their bottle selection if awesome for Eugene! Once they move into their new digs in early 2013 they'll have 30 taps and even more bottle selection! Can't wait!

Love the Bier Stein! If you are in Eugene you have to stop by and experience it. Staff is very knowledgable and the selection is the best, south of Portland. I like the arangement of the beers by region / continents makes it easy to find what you are looking for and to explore in an educated fasion especially if your new too beer. Beer cheese soup is amazing and their panini's are good too. Rotating drafts of great beers that range from local great Eugene and Oregon beers to hard to find imports. The only thing that could be improved is more seating. The Stein is where my journey into great beer started so they will always be my favorite bottle shop & pub.

This place is equal parts bottleshop and pub, as its name suggests, although it looks more like the former than the latter upon entering. The bottled selection toward the back is very impressive, with most of it housed in a refrigerator that keeps going and going. Unlike some Northwest bottleshops, The Bier Stein does well to stock more than just IPA's. As a sour lover, I'm happy to find a great selection of sours ranging in price and rotating to keep things interesting. They carry all the standards within the big categories, representing local and international breweries. Stuff on tap also rotates well, with a sign teasing upcoming drafts. The food isn't gourmet, but it's solid pub fare. Wonderfully laid-back, The Bier Stein avoids the pretense common among high end bottleshops.
