I have to qualify my experiences with this pub by saying that my wedding rehearsal dinner was held there last weekend. The special event room upstairs was decked out by the staff just to our liking, and the bartenders and servers were nothing but pleasant and helpful all evening (especially considering the behavior of some of our guests). Every single item on the buffet was exceptional - cheese platters, dips, salmon skewers, everything was top notch. All of the brewery's beers were available at the bar, as was a full bar. Again, I don't think I could have asked for a better experience in any private venue, but especially in a local brewpub.
As for the regular everyday experience of a patron who's not throwing a party for 60 people, the pub is significantly changed from the days of throwing darts and drinking on picnic tables on the loading dock. The new renovations have turned it into a sleek, steel and wood structure that is a good fit for the yuppie condo tower neighborhood that has sprung up around it. The main dining room and bakery are downstairs, with the pub upstairs. The same menu is available in both rooms, and features a good eight or so beers and some excellent food. Beer lovers of all sorts, and omnivores and vegetarians alike will all be pleased. Service is usually quite pleasant, and the the prices are more than reasonable (unlike some other local breweries that feel they can charge $5 and up for a pint of their own beer, Bridgeport remains in the $3 range for imperial pints). Overall, an excellent experience in a unique, if ahistoric, venue.
