Got there at 6 pm on a Tuesday, the place was packed and I couldn’t even find space in the bar but had to stand in the corner. A good sign as it means the place is popular. What pulled down the overall impression was the loud music they played, as if to overcome the loud talk. It did that. Good selection of Oregon breweries, not the best in town but still decent, pulls up. But overall I left the bar a bit disappointed. And its popularity means it’s difficult just to pop by for a beer when in town, as you may not find a place to sit, so I think I’ll stick to APEX and Belmont Station from now on. Visited: 2014-07-22
This place is pretty good. I can’t remember how taps they have, but they have close to 20. Oh, wait, the description, says "21", so I was close. Anyways, the clientele were made up of business folks, such as myself, and a few yuppie locals. Nothing really surprising there, but the crowd was nice. The bartender was really nice, and prompt. The prices are fair. I wouldn’t say that this was an amazing experience, but honestly, nothing was really bad about this place. Seems to get a bit crowded after working hours, but if you arrive just before then, you’ll easily find a seat. The place isn’t very big, but the high ceilings help mitigate the sense of smallness. Overall, great place to visit, and a low-key chill place that’s great to grab a few beers after work, or whenever you fucking feel like it. Cheers, folks.
Very light space. More like a coffee shop than a bar, really. I went for the anniversary party at the tap list was killer, including a special sour blend from Cascade. These people clearly love beer and know how to do it very well. Definitely would like to go back.
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.
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.
Great service, nice ambiance, good location, and decent selection. Found a couple bottles here I hadn’t seen in other places around town. Some nice restaurants and cocktail bars nearby, so its a great place to stop in to start the night. Had no issue parking, but could see how it might be tough. Worth a stop, for sure.
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.
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.
