I’ve only been to Bailey’s once, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The service was quick and friendly, other patrons were also extremely friendly. The selection was good but I wish they had some food, just something to snack on. I will definitely be back.

In town for the annual Oregon Brewer's Fest, I simply had to break away from some beer drinking and head over to this superb taproom (for some more beer drinking). First off, Bailey's is NOT a restaurant; it is small and airy tap room that offers thirsty patrons a well selected array of rotating taps. During my visit, there was a special on Modern Times Beers (San Diego). If you love beer, and if you are in Portland, you probably do, then a stop at Bailey's is a MUST.

Visited on a thursday evening. Very crowded and noisy with loud bad music playing. Totally not my vibe, conversation was compromised by the loud ambience. No table service, bartender was friendly but there’s hardly time for a chat. Excellent selection of mostly local stuff. Prices were okay. I’m gonna be generous and say this is probably a neat beer spot if you go early in the afternoon, loud music and sports bar atmosphere is not my thing so I was a bit disappointed. Again, if I’d had more time I would have revisited in the afternoon.

Spartan spot in downtown Portland that offers an expansive tap list. The menu’s digitally displayed and shows how close beers are to kicking, which is sort of cool. I appreciated Bailey’s focus on regional beer. It’s not often that I visit a place these days and struggle to find beers that I recognize on tap, an experience that I had at Baileys. The staff seemed pretty knowledgeable and were happy to offer tasters. Short pours were available, making it easy to try a bunch of stuff. Prices were reasonable. Overall, Bailey’s is an impressive place. Absolutely worth checking out if you’re visiting Portland.

Broad range of beers on tap, and very friendly service. Seemed a bit loud, even though the place was less than half full.

Interesting beers on tap is pretty much the standard here. And many of the beers among the 26 rotating taps are from Oregon. The decor is simple and kind of cozy — a bit like a cafe though they don’t serve food. The place was not filled the two times I visited recently (the huge ice storm could have something to do with that), so it was fairly quiet and comfortable. (I’ve been here on visits to Portland when it’s been crowded and it can get a little loud.) Good service, quality staff. The digital beer menu system that links to their website is nice. One of my favorite beer geek places in Portland.

Very good selection of beers and nice atmosphere even though the bar felt a bit too stiff. Lots of nice people hanging out and I’m not unsatisfied, but expected a bit more.

Very good selection of great beers. High tech draft board which is nice. Service was excellent with two very nice and knowledgeable guys behind the bar. Very noisy even though they didn’t allow minors (kudos for that!) but the accustics (sp?) In the room is just poor

Small, tech draft board place that the bartender says focuses on ipas. There were was a decent amount of very local stuff from breweries I’ve never heard so that was cool. They offer full and half pours another bonus. However, nothing on tap was stellar mostly average stuff. I’d like to visit again to see if I was there on an off night, but I was hoping to be wowed and I wasn’t.

Maybe the greatest beer bar in the country, no seriously. We hightailed it here to grab a pint off (what would be) the bottom of a Pliny keg. Amazing. Incredible menu and method of display. The only limitation here was my body’s ability to process alcohol. Seriously, I was salivating at the possibility of trying at least 15 options

Visited on a late Tuesday evening in March 2016, about a hour before closing time. The place was quite small, modern and slightly "sterile". The selection was good, and I liked the electronic tap list. The service was good although impersonal. Very nice location in downtown Portland, around 6 minutes walk from my hotel. (Marc Spencer)
