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.
Such a kick-ass beer selection on tap and the live up-to-date tap feed is a nice touch. Modern beer bar that appears to lead the way around these parts. Had beers here a few times and the bar always draws a good crowd, yet still comfortable enough during the day to sit and have a relaxing beer. A lot of bottles although probably enough interest on tap, for me anyway. Service is attentive and they make sure you don’t have an empty glass. You can order food from across the street and eat in.
I’m sitting here now! :) Lovely digital tap-list with prices and "what’s next" tap profiles. Very well crafted bottle selection full of quality beers from local and regional breweries. The prices were much cheaper than I was expecting. Free Wi-Fi and knowledgable staff.
This place is in a seedy but colorful area, intersting enough if you like voodoo and homeless teenagers standing on fire hydrants and juggling. Parking is a bit tough but do-able. Digital beer menu, great list, well above average service. Nice place.
Centrally located bar, with a nice modern vibe. So modern, in fact, that the tap list is live and on-line, in the bar as well as on their website. In addition to being live, the tap list is also very good, featuring a variety of styles of local stuff, as well as some of the best available from other locations. Always some goodies available it seems, and that goes for the bottle list as well. Nice, service minded and knowledgeable staff. Very good prices, and the good value get even better with a choice of size for most of the beers.
Loved this place so much we ended up going twice on our visit to Portland. Excellent selection of beers and great prices. Bartenders are cool and the place never got so packed I couldn’t move. I’ll be back.
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.
