Small little place across the street from Tugboat brewing. Excellent tap list. They don’t serve food, and you order everything at the bar, but a great laid back and relaxed atmosphere. It’s hard to go wrong with having about 20 taps that constantly rotate.

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.

Many more taps than Tugboat and you can bring food in (try the Mexican place across the street). Place is open but too clean to be too comfortable.

Located right across the street from Tugboat Brewing... if Tugboat disappoints you, as they tend to do, just take 5 steps and visit Bailey’s. I visited with some friends, not knowing what to expect, but needing a place to have a nice beer. So the inside seems like a blank slate - low light, high ceilings, post-modern minimalist interior, a bit pretentious but they’re going for a mood and that’s fine. A few tables here and there and a couple of couches. Late on a Friday night the place wasn’t packed at all, so it was really nice to sit on the couches for a time and drink some quality beer. Bottle selection is a good range of American craft beer. We went with a new bottle of Jolly Pumpkin La Roja, as I was trying to find something sour and tart to share with friends, and even though it ran $18, it was worth buying to share. I think I’d go back if I find myself in downtown for happy hour or dinner, as it’s easy and quick to walk to from anywhere downtown, and is probably the best pure, simple beer-geek bar IN downtown (meaning outside of the Pearl and 23rd).

Smelled like puke. Literally. As if someone had recently barfed on the floor. While other bars were packed, Bailey’s had about 7 people inside, all of whom seemed oblivious to the stench. IWe walked in and walked out.

The new standard for tavern in Portland. No booze, no food, just beer. With Bailey’s, Green Dragon, and Deschutes Brewpub all opening up in the last year, Portland’s already sweet beer bar scene is improving substantially. This place is small and simple. I like. It is also very easy on the eyes and just FEELS GOOD to be in. It’s like having slippers & sweats on. They only pour West Coast beers when it comes to their tap selections. Personally I think that puts limits where limits don’t need to be, so my selection score is lower for that reason, though to be fair there was a little more geographic range in bottle menu. I get the whole support-local thing, but you can do that w/o making it totally exclusive. Aside from that, which I hope will change, this place is awesome and bounces right to the top of my list for places to visit anytime I hit P-town. I also love the location right downtown on Broadway, just off Burnside.

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.
