Bridgeport Brewery is a family friendly brew pub in Portland, Oregon. Last week we had dinner there. It’s in the Northwest part of the Pearl District. It didn’t look like much from the outside of the building, but it was cool inside. They’ve done a great job with the space.
We were not that impressed with the beer here. We only tried two of them and both were fairly bitter. (Since our first visit we have been back a handful of times and tried many other beers. I still have not found one I like but everyone else has.)The food is absolutely fantastic. This was not your typical brew pub food. I will definitely eat here again.
blue heron beer bratwurst plate $11.25
the steel $14
bacon-braised cabbage, cheese + chive spätzle, sweet hot apple mustard + russian beet salad
This is what I ordered and it was excellent.
house-made italian sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, black olives, sliced red onion, green peppers, mozzarella + organic red sauceUnfortunately, they do not offer a kids menu. We ordered the kids a pizza to split and it was enough to feed all three of them.
jordan’s pork chile verde $7.5
pork shoulder braised with tomatillo, onions + peppers, with white beans, sour cream + a warm flour tortilla
This was the best dish we ordered and I highly recommend it.
grilled pesto chicken sandwich $10
melted fresh mozzarella cheese, roasted red peppers,
basil walnut pesto + fresh arugula on focaccia + friesI did not try this sandwich, but our friend said it was the best chicken sandwich he had ever had.
