I haven’t given Bailey’s a rating yet, surprisingly, so I will rectify this oversight as I was there last night. First, let me say that part of my rating is based on past experience. I’ve always found the service to be top notch, the beer list to be expansive, and the place to be cozy, and often crowded. However, last night, there was a switch from the calm spot I know to modem sex music blaring at 120 dB. Maybe the Rose Festival? Either way, they aren’t Apex, and they shouldn’t try out that vibe. If it continues this way, I’ll shift my rating. Personally, I hope there’s never a reason to look down upon this Portland institution.

Cool little bar in portland. When I was there the entire time they were playing some weird/trendy/world/instrumental music which I was slightly annoyed by ... and i’m very easy to please when it comes to music. They have a TV displaying the tap list and the current status of how much is in each keg ... so cool! I had a couple rare local brews and was able to snag a cool bailey’s logoed snifter. Lots of board games to enjoy while you are having a pint or two. Overall a great experience.

Great spot downtown and very fun and trendy. No food, but the Mexican place across the street delivers. Self service, but the line moves quickly. Board is cool and beers are all local. Great place for Portland craft and very good prices.

Great ambiance with big windows and view of an interesting part of downtown Portland. A great tap list of mostly Oregon beers, with many I’d never heard of from breweries around the PNW - things you can’t get in bottles. Good walk-up service, nice bottle selection, too. This is a first rate place and should definitely be on anyone’s list.

Small bar with a great selection. The electronic tap list is great, shows the keg levels and what’s coming up next which is also available online. Why don’t more places do this!

Visited December 12 2013. Quite small place with very good tap list. Only quality beers and also nice selection of bottles in fridge. If you want good seat it is better to come very early because this place is rather popular and location is great. Digital tap list was great and this place is modern in a good way.

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.

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.
