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.

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.

The selection can not be knocked. Itís their beer after all but it would be great to see a quest tap or bottles. I do like the three cask engines however.
Go there for lunch at work as I live across the street. The food ranges from great to averager. Great deal on the mussels and frits.

I am usually fairly generous with my reviews, but BridgePort is usually a disappointment to me. Their beers are *okay* but nothing impressive, and my recent visit to this Ale House was nothing if not disappointing.
While the food was great, my order came out wrong, my beer was warm and we waited nearly a half an hour before we even got to order our food. The environment seemed crowded and the server seemed annoyed that we were there.

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.

I always think of Bridgeport as the forgotten brewery in Portland - not as well acclaimed as others & not new/hip like some others. While I kinda miss the old pre-yuppified brewery atomosphere (they pretty much just served pizza you had to walk up to get) rather than the restaurant/brewery/bakery, I canít argue w/ the service which is always good, as is the food (for pub food). Happy hour food deals are really good. I like their beer a lot - but its definitely not as adventurous as many brewers. The cask conditioned IPA is still outstanding (though much less hoppy than the newer hop bombs), as is the ESB. I often get a sampler b/c I do like to try the wide selection & am a bit surprised at the prior review saying there is a lack of selection: they serve an extra pale ale, a brown, an ipa, an esb, a stout, a porter, an amber, a barley wine + seasonals (they had Hop Czar, the cherry wheat & a blonde on). Thatís 11 different beers across the ale spectrum. Almost all are good, everything is pretty easy drinking & satisfying.

I really like the ambiance of this absolutely gigantic restaurant/brewhouse. It makes me feel like Iím in an abbey or a castle somewhere (that sounds really stupid, I know). But anyway, I come here fairly often and Bridgeport has some of the best service of the places Iíve been in Portland. The food comes quickly, the servers are always asking me and my friends if we need a refill on our drinks, and most of the staff is friendly. My only regrets are that the place is a little expensive during non-happy hour times, so the regular hours food is a little overpriced. However, if you make sure you go during the happy hours the deals are very strong (especially on food). The other disappointment is that Bridgeportís seasonals are by far their best brews, and their old standbys are tasty and satisfying, but arenít as good by comparison.
