Sat outside and enjoyed the August weather. Service was actually pretty good considering it was pretty busy.
Serves its own brews (I agree with zizzybalubba that you could go here with a beer novice and everyone could find something acceptable).
Prices seemed decent.
Food was tasty.

It was under construction, but still a really nice and upscale looking brewpub. Selection was mainly normal fare and a couple of seasonals. Pretty good service as well.

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.

Bridgeport is a large brewpub located in the Pearl District in downtown Portland. The bar area is nice and comfortable and there is plentiful seating in the restaurant as well. The service was good. Only Bridgeport selections are offered and some are exclusives. I did not plan to eat but the happy hour specials were very reasonably priced so and tasted good. Prices were on average with other brewpubs/bars in the area. Portland is such a beer-rich city that Bridgeport could be overlooked but it should not be. While I like beers better from some of the other local brewers Bridgeport has some tasty selections. Bridgeport has a nice balance of beers that will appeal to both the beer geek and the beer novice.

Big airy brewpub with lots of space. I think they had 10 own beers on tap. Service was prompt and quick. You can buy merchandise from this place too. Certainly one of the places to visit while doing Beervana crawl in Portland.

(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.

When we come to Portland this is one of our favorite pub breweries. We enjoy the ambiance of the bar and the friendly bartenders. Happy Hour is a great time to visit. The Queen likes the Haymaker and I am partial to the Hop Czar, an excellent bitter. Then the Porter.
Some changes this year. Bakery is gone but they still offer a limited selection of baked goods. Mussels are off the limited but average Happy Hour menu.

The atmosphere is pretty bland, but itís nice to try all of Bridgeportís beers head-to-head on a sampler tray. I would definitely go here if youíre on a Portland brewery tour.

Classy brewpub, nice looking interior design. Service was stanard, with nothing tocomplain about. Food was actually excellent, for upscale pub fare. There cheese-and-porter soup was delicious in particular. All of their brews are on tap, with several on hand-pulled cask as well. The cask brews were really lovely.
