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 wasn’t 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 don’t like the new look, but I really like it. Sure, I miss the days of getting a single slice of pizza, but it’s 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.
This is the oldest and best craft brewery in Portland. We’ll see how it maintaines its charm post-renovation. But the original Bridgeport Brewery is something like a European Beer Hall with an American flavor.
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 I’d have liked. I very much liked this place. There is a bakery inside, too, with cupcakes.
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.
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 I’ve 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!
This is a very large establishment with a large restaurant inside. They give brewery tours for free and it includes a free pint. Very clean place with excellent staff. The beer selection is limited to just bridgeport beers but they have some rare stuff on tap as well as some cask conditioned. The gift shop has lots of shirts and most importantly all the bottled beers they offer. This was a great place to visit, it felt more like an amusment park than a brewpub.
Oh! The food was good too, so that's a plus.
Was at this brewery in 2009. The brewmaster gave us a private brewery tour very late in the evening, just because we made an interested impression. Like the whole place, nice interior, beers are above average.
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 can’t 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). That’s 11 different beers across the ale spectrum. Almost all are good, everything is pretty easy drinking & satisfying.
