Hey, hands down. This is my favorite brew pub in the Pacific Northwest and especially in a city known for having great brew pubs, that says a lot for Bridgeport. The first thing you notice when you approach the establishment is the bricks and ivy (being a Cubs fan from Chicago I liked this place from the start). Upon entering, you notice the rustic atmosphere (lots of wooden panels, tables, partitions) and the smell of the pizzas in the ovens. We immediately ordered a pizza and a sampler of their beer. Delicious pizza. I was already familiar with the IPA and the pale ale. But everything was tasty. The service was friendly and everyone we spoke to seems to be locals who gave the place high marks. This will be the first place we visit when we return to Portland.

This is a great brewpub and one of the best I've been too.

The atmosphere is nice, very attractive, interesting, and well laid-out inside, with a huge outdoor patio area one the side. The building is an interesting old industrial place, too. The seating inside is also comfortable, roomy, yet reasonably cozy despite having some privacy and it is not overly loud even when busy.

Quality of beers is excellent overall.

Service that we had was really outstanding, friendly, efficient, attentive, and very pleasant.

The beer selection was great, with cask beer and a nice range of their great beers, the beer selection presented being up to date (unlike its near neighbour, Rogue).

Food is excellent, well above par for even good beer places, with a range of interesting and unusual dishes while everything is handled and prepared very nicely.

This is a top place in Portland in our book.

In the shadow of Portland's busy steel girdered Freemont bridge sits a brick warehouse-like building that houses the oldest brewery in Portland, the Bridgeport Brewing company and bakery. I've had two visits to this wonderful place in the last six months and really enjoyed myself both times.

The first time was in early September on a beautiful, clear, warm day and a few of us sat outside on an old loading dock converted for outdoor dining for a light lunch and some beers. A delicious gourmet pizza, a lovely goat cheese and mesculin green salad and a couple of nice appetizers accompanied Bridgeport's high quality brews. Service was professional and courteous.

A second visit two months later, this time alone and sitting indoors, produced another equally satisfactory experience.

This place is clean, upscale, well run, reasonably priced and produces excellent products in all categories.

Kudos to the waitress who went out of her way to get a special dispensation to sell me three bombers of the delicious Hop Harvest Ale a couple of hours before the release party began. I really did have to leave and was sad to have to go, knowing that the previous two years vintage would be offered during the party. Consideration and attention to detail pays off every time.

Bridgeport is a must visit in the beautiful Pearl district of Portland. I'll be bringing visitors here every time.

Overall a very nice big high ceilinged warehouse type set-up. We chose to sit outside since it was an awesome day. The service and food was pretty good. Nice brats cooked on the grill outside right next to our table.

Many different beers on tap - I counted 9. Beers are of very good quality considering the wide range of styles. There 2 standard beers (the Amber and the Pale Ale) were by far the most dissapointing - nothing special there. The other 7 were very good.

They had a special beer on tap when I was there: A Black Lager which was very nice and worth a try although the server didn't know much about it...

Of the regular beers, the Supris (seasonal?), the IPA, and the Barleywine really stood out above the others. The IPA is a very nice NW IPA.

Well worth a visit -- wish I had more time to check out the other brewpubs around Portland to compare but I'd say this one was a winner.

Another stop during my recent visit (OBF); in fact, Bridgeport was the first target hit upon arrival - it being under renovation during my previous visit in November 2005. (Oh - the vines depicted in the picture have been long pulled.)

Located in Portland's Pearl District, or warehouse district more likely, BP is situated in a reconverted warehouse; you enter into a large, open, multi-storied, brickwalled space that is bisected by a steel staircase (leading upstairs to Bridgeport's only bar and restrooms).

On the left is a dining area with tables; to the right, as you enter, is a smaller dining area decked out with tables and high-tops. Off to the side is a bakery set-up with tantalizing sweets, but I was there for the beer. There is a walk up bar in the back for ordering. It sort of reminded me of many of the pubs in Prague - but I digress. Outside on what was once the loading dock is a patio for outdoor drinking - guess it still is a "loading" dock after all. Anyway sit, relax and watch the construction across the street.

The beer, their beer, is served fresh in Imperial pint glasses. A thirsty patron has about eight taps from which to choose; I enjoyed the tasty Blue Heron, the IPA and on cask: Ropewalk and Haymaker, the latter being an amber ale. Please note: they also had their hop heavy (100+ IBU) Hop Czar, which I sampled the following day at OBF - I did go back a second time for another. Mybad.

Efficient service meant my glass was never empty. Bridgeport has an excellent weekday Happy Hour when pints are $2.75.

Off course, being in the aforementioned Pearl District, Bridgeport Brewing is accessible by the beloved Portland Streetcar; it runs east on Lovejoy (1 block south) and west on Northrup (1 block north), so you can catch it either way. Check out the sign in front by the door; it provides notification of the streetcar arrival/departures. I heard that they adopted a stop. How sweet. Enjoy it during your next Portland visit.
