Maybe I shouldn’t have gone here as one of my first Portland beer bars... I just ruined every other place that comes after it!
Sleek, modern interior with a small V-shaped bar and tables/windows surrounding that. The renowned electronic-board (seeing is believing) lists one amazing beer after another, and there are cabinets that and shelves that hold the bottles high-up on the wall. Self-service at the bar. I’d love to work here. Very attentive staff. Friendly enough for Portland service-workers. There were Magic nerds playing card-games right next to older guys dressed in business suits-- a good mix of people, becoming progressively younger as the night goes on, but never getting rowdy. Clean unisex bathrooms. 10oz pours for only $2.50 on most of the stuff, meaning you can go home having tried a handful of stuff you’ve never heard of before, without breaking the $30 mark, including tip. I’m going to make this my spot, starting again tomorrow.

So, apparently the electronic tap board is a west coast thing. Well, its the first I’ve seen of it and I thought it was awesome. Cozy little joint in downtown and convenient walking to were I was staying. Not a huge selection but extremely well thought out. Had some things that were very delicious at a reasonable price.

Bailey’s is a cool, relatively small bar located in downtown Portland. One of the first things I noticed was there are no commercial tap handles, only generic handles with numbers. Above the taps are the 20 selections on flat screen monitors with full descriptions of each beer and an indicator as to how full each keg is. Even though the bar was quite crowded the bartenders were quick, attentive, and knowledgeable. The selection was pretty incredible to only have 20 selections. If there was food I did not try it. Prices were reasonable. Overall, this is worthy of the praise it is receiving.

A totally groovy and unassuming crowd. The bartenders are friendly and not afraid to warn you away from things. The selection varies daily but information on the big screens is phenomenal and also accessible via their Iphone app. You can bring your own food or order at the Mexican across the street who will bring it over. Dare I say it? The prices are fair.

A sort of odd mix of a modern dance club feel and yet board games, chess. A cool electronic board listing the 21 rotating taps. Bottles as well, maybe 50. Great service. Very knowledgeable staff. In a cool location. The Santeria Mexican place next door is awesome.

A great bar in a great beer town.
22 taps (all good and often rotating) and uncountable bottle selection.There’s always something new on tap, even for the most experienced and far-ranging craft beer fans. Minimal attention to decor, but that’s okay --it’s basic and comfortable. Can get a bit crowded in the evening. No wait service; you go to the bar and order what you want. Beers are served quickly. Good, substantial Mexican dishes are available for order at the restaurant across the street (and they’ll deliver to the bar). Friendly and very knowledgeable staff. Decent prices. $7.50 for five samplers. Cool electronic beer menu board. A must if you are in downtown Portland.

Very well lit for a beer bar, very clean for a beer bar as well. Excellent video tap list, very entertaining and informative. Killer tap list, local and regionally focused. Everything available in half pours, and exceptionally well priced. Beer clean glassware and proper pouring practice. Cask ales, very well conditioned and well served. Bottle list has to be the most surprising element here; rare stuff, especially for an East Coast dweller, and very well priced. A must stop!

Very light space. More like a coffee shop than a bar, really. I went for the anniversary party at the tap list was killer, including a special sour blend from Cascade. These people clearly love beer and know how to do it very well. Definitely would like to go back.

Fine location, big windows, and the beer. Always a wide range of styles and brewers, with a good percentage of limited releases. The staff know their beers and the neighborhood (great food across the alley at Santeria). And you gotta love the computer screen menu keeping tap of how full each keg is.

So, the atmosphere here is not what I would typically be into, but for some reason, in Portland, it works - high-ceilinged, faux upscale urban professional hangout - a large flatscreen displays the beer list, complete with style, abv, serving size and how much beer is left in the keg - prices are crazy cheap, with at least 50% on the beers available in 10 ounce pours for 2.50 - flights are also available - servers are hipsters, minus the pretention - they are fairly knowledgeable - they also sell their own logo glassware - focus is on local beer from the lesser-known local breweries, which is nice, considering how many big name brewers there are in town - a great spot - I will try to stop in at least once more while I am in town.
