What a great brew pub! The atmosphere was great inside with high ceilings and a bakery. We took a spot outside to enjoy the afternoon sun. Selected the sampler to try some BridgePort beers Iíve been looking forward to. All were very tasty. Ordered lunch and really enjoyed the pizza and bavarian pretzel. Service was great. Do not miss this pace!
A two stories quite modern brewpub with a good crowd on a Thursday night. 9 beers on draft of which I hadnít tried the 6 of them. But inspite of the busy Thursday night I got a sampler of all the beers with no bad sentiment - nice. I could go back if Iím near sometime.
Gorgeous building (used to be a ropemaking factory). Quite sleek interior with high ceilings. 11 beers on tap, including 2 casks. Service was polite and prompt - very good. The beers were all more hoppy than Iíd have liked. I very much liked this place. There is a bakery inside, too, with cupcakes.
Overall my favorite brewpub bar-none. My wife and I liked it so much we bought a condo just a few blocks away! Ok, that wasnít the only reason we bought the condo, but it is nice just being able to go downstairs & grab a growler. Bridgeport went through a major renovation a few years back & a lot of people donít like the new look, but I really like it. Sure, I miss the days of getting a single slice of pizza, but itís still nice. The only downside of this place at all is allowing smokers on the patio. Very annoying but hopefully that will stop with the new law next year. Oh, btw, the IPA is the best. Best in the world imo. And the Selwood pizza is great.
We loved the place. The food was good and the beers quite nice. The best of the brews was the IPA but the brown and amber were adequate. We never got off the appetizer menu. Mebbe next time. We did go back and still stayed with the appetizers.
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.

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.
