My wife and I came back for my second visit and had the pizza and stumptown tart. Wish we still lived in the area.
Really nice place. Stopped in on an monday afternoon, and got great service. Tried the sampler platter and tried some bridgeport beers that I hadnít
tried before. Really liked the barley wine and wish that I could get it in a 6 pack. Food was great and the bread was incredible. Love the place canít wait to come back and visit.

I like this place a lot. A very modern aesthetic with a traditional, old-time, industrial influence. Service was good, food was good and the beers were good. The selection is limited to Bridgeport, but their beers are great so who cares. This is probably my favorite brewpub I have been to so far in Portland. I will certainly try again here for the night life sometime. Good deals for happy hours Mon-Fri and you can get a growler filled of ale for just 9 bucks.

Entered this large establishment on a weekend afternoon in ealy June 2006, I believe. There is a little bakery as you enter with the bar being straight back. Interior has a very industrial feel, yet the tables and chairs are quite modern. There are no seats at the bar. There is an upstairs, which is the location of the sole pisser, which also has these enormous industrial-like pissers--lind of cool. The bathroom is located on these iron catwalks above the downstairs, so it is a bit of a hike. The service was fair--the bartender came out to my table to see if everything was ok. I got the sample platter, which included 4-5 ounces of all 8 of there beers on tap. The beer itself was extremely conservative without anything being overly interesting or mindblowing. It was well-crafted and to style, which was good. I did not have lunch here. All in all, I probably would not go back, seeing the beer menu is pretty stagnant with only 1 rotating seasonal, with the rest of the beers being relatively uninteresting.

I cannot wait to see how this place looks once it re-opens. I have been there a couple of times and kind of poked my head in at the renovations and it looks like they are staying pretty true to the structure of the building and the previous layout. I hope they do not turn this place into a soulless Pearl District hangout.

I really enjoyed this place. Probably some of the best beer in Portland. The food was wonderful and the best meal I have had in a brewery. All the beer was wonderful. I am not an IPA or ESB drinker, but loved theirs. The service was wonderful. I only wish they had things to purchase for my collection.

This is the oldest and best craft brewery in Portland. Weíll see how it maintaines its charm post-renovation. But the original Bridgeport Brewery is something like a European Beer Hall with an American flavor.

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."

Written as a review of the older building before the remodel. Cool dark interior with massive beams exposed. Usually quiet when I have been there with a loading dock to sit outside at. Pizza kicks butt. Beer selection is solid but nothing to rave about. I am disappointed to hear that they are renovating this into a yuppie, Pearl District hangout.

Overall, not bad. The old factory is nice, with the brick and such making for a cool interior. The acoustics are kinda weird though. The tour is very cool, and makes for a full afternoon. Didnít eat, but have heard good things. The beer is basically there 5-7 standards and one or two extras thrown in. No guarantees on the extras, though.

Ok, so strange things are afoot at the Bridgeport. They are closing for 10 months to do a remodel. The building is great, an old rope factory with ivy on the exterior walls. Patio with tables and chairs. Now everything is changing. They have waiters, instead of ordering at the counter. There will be a rooftop deck. Sounds like they are trying to fit into the Pearl District. Iíll update after the re-open.
