My favorite beer bar/taproom. 20 rotating taps, plus a cask pump and a firkin. Very friendly knowledgeable staff. Always great beers to choose from. The latest coolest high tech beer menu ever. I'm in here once a week or more since I live a few blocks away, but it is more than just the convenience.
Food is available from several neighboring venues, the taqueria across the street delivers.

After my first night at the OBF we stumbled into this place. Tap handles galore and good stuff. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. This being in the center of Portland it can and will be packed. They had taps from mostly the Pac NW with a few exceptions. You can tell that the people there knew what they where getting. The prices were a tad high in my book. But then I get spoiled at times. This is a great place to sit down and relax on a hot summer day. Did not have food on this trip.

This is a great space. It’s on a slightly angled corner right in downtown Portland. There are double height ceilings with complete window coverage on two sides. The floors are concrete, the walls are brick with some of the original plaster still sticking to them, and there is a nice wooden bar with stools as well as various black wooden tables and chairs throughout. The ceiling is white and has exposed metal heating ducts. Out front on the sidewalk are a few black metal tables and chairs.

The atmosphere is very welcoming and, at least on our visit, the bartender was very knowledgeable about beer. The beer selection is truly impressive - it’s a rotating tap list of twenty beers. The list was very diverse in styles and almost all from small breweries from Oregon, except for a few larger Oregon craft breweries and one token from Orange County (CA) - “The Bruery”. At the prices were quite inexpensive for the standard beers, especially as the beer is served in Imperial pints.

As asg noted, there's no kitchen at Bailey's. You can turn this into a win for yourself by bringing in your own food or something from the food carts not far away at 5th and Oak. Makes for an economical evening.

Twenty well-curated taps, mostly Northwestern brews. One cask beer engine. A few snob-worthy bottles. Imperial pints, and fair prices on the beer.

Atmosphere is relaxed. Proprietor is friendly and will give you his candid opinion about the beers. This place is great; just wish it was open during lunch or on Sundays.

This place is well located near several other Portland bars, such as Rogue and Henry's 12th st Tavern. It also isn't far from MAX and many of the downtown hotels. That being said it was almost empty on a Saturday night. My wife and I passed it by initially, because there were only two other people there and it wasn't that inviting. We eventually found our way back. The beer selection was very good. They don't serve food and I'm not sure if they have snacks or munchies of any kind.

They did have nice comfy couches and with a few more people and maybe some munchies I could spend a few good hours here.

This new taproom in downtown Portland is one of the best new brew locations in this Mecca for craft brewing.

Their 20-some taps include winners from almost exclusively Oregon Craft Brewers: New Old Lompoc, Ninkasai, Deschutes, HUB, etc.

The location across the street from both Tugboat Brewing and Portland's classic Mary's is a brisk walk from the MAX stop @ Pioneer Court House Square, and easy access to all downtown bus lines.

Rumor has it, that the hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint next to Tugboat provides food, for there is no kitchen in Bailey's Taproom. But I have not yet sampled the fare.

This is worth a trip downtown, and as said, - The perfect place to bring out of town guests to sample Oregon's wares.
