An awesome building inside and out, with a section of picnic tables located inside which is perfect for group gatherings. Has a cabin feel from all of the wood inside... other than the IPA or barley wine on cask some times, donít expect anything you canít get in bottles. If youíre visiting the town and are in a hurry, I would suggest to pass this one up and pick up their bottles somewhere in town. But if you have the time and want to go relax and read the paper, this is a great spot. Havenít tried the food yet.

Visited in May 2004: I enjoyed the old brick surroundings in what used to be an industrial space, I guess, so Iím curious as to the renovations. Iíd call the beer "average plus."

(Visited 02/2010): Walked to Bridgeport on the suggestion of our server at Deschutes. It is located on Marshall and 13th, and there is street parking in all directions.
The interior has an industrial feel and is 2 levels, giving it a very open look. Lots of brick and exposed pipe, and dark colors. The bar is in the rear with a view of some of the small batch brewing equipment. There is also a permanent beer menu situated behind the bar displaying their regular and seasonal beers. There is also a small gift shop area with a cooler of bottled beer to go.
The beer selection consists of around 7 including 1 or 2 seasonals. There is a sampler available for $7.50. The beers are pretty standard offerings such as Amber, IPA, and ESB plus a couple of higher-end beers like a Scotch ale and the Hop Czar IPA. The standard beers are pretty average with the bigger brews being better.
Service was good on a weekday afternoon. The bartender was covering the area where we sat and he was knowledgeable about their available beers.
We did not try any food on this visit.
Overall Bridgeport is not at the top of the list as far as places I would hit on a return visit to Portland but I am glad we stopped in.

Quite a hip, very modern place which must have costed millions. Almost impressive to be in. Settled in a trendy neighborhood, it is easy to get to and close to classics like Rogue or Deschutes. For that reason, it is easy to stop by. The selection is also quite large. While the beers are clean and more than fair, they are not particularly adventurous by Portlandís standards. If not necessarily the kind of place I like to go out to, Portlanders are relaxed enough that no one feels out of place. Weíve just eaten small appetizers and they were good. The prices on food and beers is also quite salivating during happy hour so that might be a good time to visit as it lacks the tavern feel of the top places in town.

Huge brewpub situated in a pleasant building that has a large dining area as well as seating in the front bar and outside patio. Had a nice pint of porter with lunch. Friendly and efficient wait staff. Side area selling merchandise and growlers.

This is a nice, approachable brewpub. Two floors with open, wooden furnishings make for a typical, though welcoming atmosphere. I unfortunately only had one pint during my visit and zoned out on the couch upstairs. I was way too full from the burger Iíd just experienced. I couldíve had a better experience here but I poorly chose the not-so-great Haymaker pale ale. Overall, itís a good stop downtown. Good enough selection for the beer geek, but I didnít see anything that was just begging for me to drink it.

Beautiful bar and restaurant, in a very trendy up scale area. Service was good and beer selection was limited to their brews of which they only have 6-8. This is problematic if you donít like their beers as there is limited choice. Food is good and happy hour menu makes this great value if you can sneak out of work in time.

The renovation short of yuppified the place, and the bar area is like glass and SS., but the old structure still makes an impression. There were three great Bridgeport ales on cask, and the rest in draft. The food was really good. You should not miss it.

Nice place, good beers on tap, though the cask ales were lagging in flavor and there was only one seasonal and no bottles differing from the taps. A good place to stop in Portland, though not one of the best times I had. Would like to try the food--especially the baked goods.

One of the first places I ever went to when i first moved to Portland. A great beer scene and great beers. Good food and the brewery tour was awesome.
