I had avoided Bailey's taproom for years because I rarely find myself on the west side of the river, and I just didn't realize that Bailey's was a good enough destination to warrant the trip alone... but it is!

Ever since my first stop, it's become part of my regular bar rotation.

The taplist is always really solid, and I often find beers on at Bailey's that I haven't seen at my other favorite beer bars in town. On top of the generally great rotating taplist, they've really built an impressive collection of very reasonably priced bottles available for on site consumption or take-out.

As far as the food goes, there is none, but they keep menus behind the bar for local restaurants, and the mexican place across the street (santeria) delivers free of charge. On my last trip, I got a huge burrito from across the street, and ate it along with a caldera old growth imperial stout, deschutes black butte xxi, 07 alaskan smoked porter, and hair of the dog greg.

The staff is always friendly, but sometimes the bar is understaffed, and service can be a bit slow.

Still, I never really mind. When I'm at Bailey's I'm never in a hurry to leave. (1,150 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)
