This is a great beer bar right in downtown Portland.

When my friends and I visited--late on a Monday night--the place had a good crowd of folks still there. It has an urban-chic feel, but there are board games that belie the hipper-than-thou feel that one might accuse this place of having. And, anyway...the beer is great! They've got twenty rotating taps, and the emphasis is on Northwest brews. Amongst others, they had Walking Man Saison du Ped, HUB Seven Grain Stout, and taps from Cascade Lakes, Caldera, Laurelwood, Avery, Stone, Hale's, and Double Mountain.

The service was friendly, even though the bartender told us that he had been hoping to close early on a Monday night.

This is a great place for a pint or two--a high-priority visit for out of town beer tourists. (781 characters)

I've grown up on the East Coast and for about two years I was lucky enough to travel to Portland, OR for work about every three months. I was staying downtown and looking for a place to taste some of the great beers that the West Coast has to offer and was recommended Bailey's. Only about 4 blocks from my hotel I made it a point to walk to Bailey's at least three of the five nights I was visiting. They have a huge digital beer board and carry about 22 beers on tap along with one nitro selection. About 80-90% of the beers are from the West Coast and once a keg kicks another beer is rotated in; if you go on a Monday and then again on Friday the beers will have probably changed 2-3 times. Phenomenal selection, no matter what you like there will be at least a couple great beers to try.

Can't enough about this place, I'm not traveling to Portland again anytime soon but when I do this place is a sure stop. (914 characters)

Cool place. Solid but not spectacular. What Bailey's has going for it is location. If you are staying downtown on the west side of the river, there aren't many great beer bars, so Bailey's stands out. Tap list when I was there was solid, but nothing worth noting. Vibe is pretty cool too. (295 characters)

Great prices on draft and bottles. A bit tight inside, but not a bad environment. Live statuses on drafts is a great feature. (127 characters)
