One of the coolest beer bars in the PNW. Bailey’s has 20 rotating taps all interesting styles mostly of the Pacific Northwest. Two bartenders are friendly, knowledgeable and on top of what’s up in the beer world. Oh, they just got a beer engine and also have a nice selection of bottled brews. Ambiance inside is laid back, chill, retro futuristic with high ceiling. Great relaxed casual clean motif. And Baileys was smoke free when it wasn’t cool, which gives it extra points. It’s hard to find fault with this place, except maybe that it is downtown and I live in Southeast.

Maybe the greatest beer bar in the country, no seriously. We hightailed it here to grab a pint off (what would be) the bottom of a Pliny keg. Amazing. Incredible menu and method of display. The only limitation here was my body’s ability to process alcohol. Seriously, I was salivating at the possibility of trying at least 15 options

This is my favorite beer bar of all time. It is clean, relatively quiet, and has a very comfortable feel. There are no annoying TVs to distract you, just good company. While they do not have an epic selection of bottles and taps like a Toronado, they do have a very quickly moving set of 20 taps. As soon as something is out, a new beer is put on in place of it. They update their beer menu accordingly, too, which is a rarity. They have a nice selection of bottles to go (which are VERY reasonably priced) as well as bottles for on-site consumption. The bartenders and owners are incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I just had a fantastic time here. The main complaints would be that they do not serve food, and that they only have 2 restrooms. The food can be ordered next door, much like Toronado, etc. I also hate all the paupers who are bothersome if you choose to sit outside. That is a problem with Portland in general, though.

Bailey’s is ridiculous. Their beer menu is wonderful. It’s digital and includes keg levels. (Look it up. It was on the cover of beer advocate). They are an after-work place, and they close rather early. The space is a little awkward, but I hear they’re expanding. GO HERE.

Loved this place so much we ended up going twice on our visit to Portland. Excellent selection of beers and great prices. Bartenders are cool and the place never got so packed I couldn’t move. I’ll be back.

This is the best place downtown. has 20 rotating taps, majority of them, beers I have not seen very often on tap. The Interior is modest and simple, and I don’t think I’ve ever been to a beer oriented bar where the bartender didn’t automatically assume I knew nothing about beer. I hate that more than anything. This guy started talking to me about beer as if we had talked several times in the past about beer. My favorite thing, actual 20oz imperial pints. $4 for Hopworks Deluxe in an imperial pint. Seems like a steal to me. If you’re in downtown Portland, do not miss this place.

Cool little beer bar in downtown PDX. 20 or so taps and a cask ale also available with a really nice selection. 5 glass samplers available to give you a chance to try as much as possible. Very knowledgeable staff, really into the beer. Definitely a world class bar and a must visit.

Pretty standard decor, large windows, nice downtown location. Baileys has an awesome, helpful and knowledgeable staff. The best part about Baileys is their beer list. It’s up on two large tv screens, and there is a little keg next to each beer and stats that tell you how much is left. Really helps make a decision on which beer to drink first!

I spent 7 days in Portland drinking some of the best beers I have had in my life. Hands down, this was my favorite spot. Incredible selection of delicious hard to find beers on tap. I like the clean, modern open atmosphere - lots of windows and a layout that encourages conversation. I can see how some might be turned off by the fact that this does not have a "Pub-like" atmosphere, but it did not bother me. A matter of personal preference, I suppose. Bartenders were reasonably helpful and had no problem providing samples.
