Visited for a couple of drinks while our wives were across the street at a vintage store...had a bit more time then we expected but that wasn’t a problem. There at openning and the place got mostly filled up fairly quickly however even with just the one guy (I think owner too) behind the bar service was quick and friendly. He definitely knew his beers, as well as his bottle selection, and there was a nice spread of west coast offerings focused more on smaller and local breweries. Prices were reasonable and the option of sample trays was great, not too mention that if you just want a taste of anything they sure are accomodating. When walking downtown its worth a stop in to see what they have on tap - and the online list of their beers (including amount of beer left in each keg) is accurate. No minors and no food. Nice windowed location with some fun old school board games (connect four) along with newer offerings like apples to apples.

What a cool place. We stumbled in for KillerBeerFest 5, so we were able to get some really good, exotic brews for darn good prices. The "live" beer board was cool, and the service (walk up only) was fine. We really enjoyed our visit a lot...

Awesome beer bar in downtown Portland, sort of in a league of its own in the area. APEX is on the Eastside. Best thing about Bailey’s is that they don’t serve food but let you bring in food. And across the street is some of the best Mexican food around at Santeria’s. Order from Bailey’s or walk across the street, put in your order, pay, and then walk into Baileys for it to be brought over. They do this so much that Baileys has a dirty dish disposal.

Tap list here is live update online with keg fill levels. Welcome to the 21st century! I wish more bars did this. Focus is on Oregon small brewers, lots of crazy local stuff you won’t find anywhere else. Nice variety of styles. 1 or 2 cask ales. Server knew his stuff. They also allow you to buy bottles off their bottle list for on-premise OR take away, which was crazy. Markup on the bottles was lower than you’d expect. A local favorite for a reason. Not to miss. The only reason I wouldn’t give this a 90 score is that they close really early- midnight on Friday/Saturday. Which is a bummer.

Such a kick-ass beer selection on tap and the live up-to-date tap feed is a nice touch. Modern beer bar that appears to lead the way around these parts. Had beers here a few times and the bar always draws a good crowd, yet still comfortable enough during the day to sit and have a relaxing beer. A lot of bottles although probably enough interest on tap, for me anyway. Service is attentive and they make sure you don’t have an empty glass. You can order food from across the street and eat in.

I’m sitting here now! :) Lovely digital tap-list with prices and "what’s next" tap profiles. Very well crafted bottle selection full of quality beers from local and regional breweries. The prices were much cheaper than I was expecting. Free Wi-Fi and knowledgable staff.

This place is in a seedy but colorful area, intersting enough if you like voodoo and homeless teenagers standing on fire hydrants and juggling. Parking is a bit tough but do-able. Digital beer menu, great list, well above average service. Nice place.

Centrally located bar, with a nice modern vibe. So modern, in fact, that the tap list is live and on-line, in the bar as well as on their website. In addition to being live, the tap list is also very good, featuring a variety of styles of local stuff, as well as some of the best available from other locations. Always some goodies available it seems, and that goes for the bottle list as well. Nice, service minded and knowledgeable staff. Very good prices, and the good value get even better with a choice of size for most of the beers.

Small bar with 30 taps. Mostly local.stuff, some great. I love that they offer different size pours, 4, 10, 16, or 20 oz. depending on the brew, great for trying a few.

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.
