This is a very cool little brewpub. After wandering around the shops in the Old Port, decided to pop in here for a beer. The look is very "woody" and has comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. There are a bunch of different rooms with a couple of different feels. You may like hanging out at a long table near the first floor bar with some tourists, or maybe head downstairs where more of the locals hang. The beers are quite tasty - in previous trips in here, I've had the Nut Brown and Best Bitter. This time around I had the Christmas Ale - which is a fantastic brew! The food is your standard "Maine" influenced Pub Grub - I only happened to get their chips this time around, but it went nicely with the beer on a unseasonally warm winter day in Maine.

On my trip to Portland, I decided to stop by Gritty McDuff's. Upon entering the establishment, there is a bar area with a downstairs, an entrance to sit out in the back cobblestone street, and a long dining room area where you can sit yourself on long refectory tables. The atmosphere of the place was definitely social in what appeared to be a classic pub-style environment, with wood and brick making up the interior designs of the place. I ordered the fish and chips for my supper, and although the portions seemed small, I was satisfied by the meal. For drinks, I had the Original Pub Style beer and then the Black Fly Stout. The Pub Style beer was my favorite of the two. Service was a bit slow and our waitress took awhile for some drink orders. However, I noticed she was the only wait staff in our room, so that may have been the main problem.

I have always liked Gritty's beers, so it was a fun to finally eat at their pub in Portland
