Bailey’s 8th Anniversary

Bailey’s 8th Anniversary

Saturday, July 25th

Noon-11 PM

Join us as we celebrate our Eighth Anniversary with the most ambitious day of suds-slinging yet! Not only will Bailey’s Taproom be the place to indulge in our annual barrel-aged beer extravaganza, we’ll also be hosting a VIP event at The Upper Lip with six rare brews guaranteed to blister your brain and blow your mind AND for the first time ever we’ll be closing down SW Ankeny Street to unveil Session Alley!

The main event takes place at Bailey’s Taproom, where we’ll be pouring over twenty special barrel-aged beers and ciders for discerning beer fans and spirit lovers alike. From wee heavies to barleywines, imperial stouts and all manner of funky sours, this will be one of the most high octane collections of brews your taste buds have ever tried to tackle. Admission will be free and unticketed, and most beers will be available in both 12 oz glasses and 4 oz pours.

Meanwhile, at The Upper Lip, six special, exclusive brews you thought would never see the light of day will finally be unveiled to VIP patrons. Admittance will be limited to pre-sale ticket holders only and will grant access to upstairs seating and an atmosphere more conducive to sipping beer and relaxing with friends. Keep an eye on our website as tickets will be available soon!

Finally, Session Alley will overtake Ankeny as an outdoor, fenced-in beer garden with picnic tables and an additional six taps dedicated to summer drinking. Take a break from all those brain cell-blasting brews with a pint of Pilsner, a Berliner Weisse or an ISA. Patrons of Bailey’s Taproom will be welcome to take their beer outside to enjoy in the open air and those who purchase VIP tickets will be able to freely roam between all three bars.

The fun begins at noon on Saturday, July 25th, so start training your liver now and leave your car keys at home! MAX trains, busses, and taxis are conveniently located within stumbling distance of our location at 213 SW Broadway in downtown Portland.

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to New Avenues for Youth.
