Portland Beer Week 2017 is June 8-19 and the city is gearing up for two weeks worth of celebrating craft beer, Portland style. This year, Bailey’s Taproom & The Upper Lip are hosting a total of four events ranging from tap takeovers to a sour seminar. Also this month, Bailey’s Taproom expands even further into its tiny corner of Southwest Portland with the debut of DownPour Draft, a beer garden complementing a new food cart pod in the newly renovated Ankeny Square Park.

DownPour Draft in Ankeny Square:
Ankeny Square, the small park on the south side of the Park Blocks off of W. Burnside, is getting a newly renovated food cart pod this summer! Since Ankeny Square is in Bailey’s backyard, the city asked if we’d like to participate in keeping the food cart patrons beered. Of course!
Bailey’s Taproom presents DownPour Draft, a 4-tap beer cart and garden pouring solely beer & cider from our fine city of Portland, OR. The cart will be operating during regular pod hours. The food cart pod will be open 11am-7pm Thursday-Sunday for a run through the end of August.
