i'd vouch for apex since not only do they have a great beer list, but you can snag a great burrito from los gorditos next door and enjoy your beer + burrito on the apex patio. beermongers is catty-corner from apex too. belmont station is also great since they have a good tap list and an even better bottle shop. there's a sandwich foodcart outside too. i'd also req making the trek to one drop bottle shop on burnside for the occasional rare bottle, commons brewing, and gigantic brewing, which is deep in SE. also not beer related but hale pele is an incredible tiki bar and 100% worth checking out. also the portland airport has a couple places you can snag beer past security for the flight home. nothing too crazy but i remember seeing a few gigantic brewing bombers at least.
