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.

This is a must visit while touring the Portland craftbeer scene. I love the electronic beer signs...especially when they show details like when tapped and how much left. I suppose this will be "old hat" in a year or two...but still enjoying it. Nice setup...great staff. The best part though is the selection...especially of local and greater Oregon beers. If you don’t have time to hit a lot of Oregon establishments...come here and taste a large representation in one spot.

Visited around 9.30pm on Weds 7/11/12. Place was fairly busy with largely a younger crowd but we bagged a table ok. Tap list was varied and interesting - my only small gripe not many high ABV beers and no DIPA’s or RIS’s on my visit. Whilst I don’t need to see the menu awash with strong beers, one each from these two styles would have been good! Service was fine, would definately reccomend this venue. You can check what’s on tap on their website and it shows approximately how much is left in the barrel for each beer !!! They don’t have food here but ordered a Burrito from the Mexican opposite and they delivered it to us. It was fantastic and great vfm!

Great place with 20 great taps. Went there after a Belgian Beer Fest tapping. Extremely reasonable prices and great service. Bottle prices are the same to drink there as they are to go, and are generally cheaper than Belmont Station. Crowded, but with a pleasant ambience. Definitely one of the best spots in Portland. Don’t miss it.

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.
