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.

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.

I’ve been here about 5 times now since they opened, so I supposed I should let the secret out...although it isn’t really a secret anymore. This is one of favorite places in Portland, and is a must hit spot. Easy walking distance from a handful of hotels downtown, I really enjoy the feel of this place. In a really cool high ceiling brink wall corner space. Super clean and very minimal in decor. Tap list is displayed on a chalk board and is constantly rotating. They do an excellent job of showcasing local and more obscure beers. They offer two different size pours on almost everything including a taster tray. Great bottle list and growlers to go as well. No food and I am not sure if they allow you to bring stuff in or not, but PDX has a ton of places close by. I am a huge fan of this place.

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.

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.

This place is a mixed bag. Excellent rotating selection of many top notch beers (including RR Supplication). But the place doesn’t open till 4:30 pm, and no food. Can get quite busy shortly after opening.

Great selection for such a little place. Loved the electronic menu that included ABV and amount left in the keg. Cool beer bar in downtown Portland, we will definitely check it out again.

DA took me here when we met up in Portland. Very cool place that has 21 rotating taps with a nice selection. They also had some nice bottles for purchase as well. Great prices on beers.

Wish they could have made things a bit more warm and pub like and I’d give the ambiance a 5. Like having no kids. Enthusiastic bartender both times there. Liked trying out a flight during the peak of fresh hop season.
