Brews at Bridgeport Pub in NW

Last week was the week for beer - a late night at Bridgeport Brewpub and then some Holiday Ale Fest fun.  I would recommend Bridgeport Brewery any day of the week for some good food and quality craft beer. They are open seven days a week until 10pm or later.

The brewpub is two stories with bars on each level and a gift shop on the main level. The walls are all red brick, candles light up the tables and leather couches are available for lounging. I love the atmosphere because it is always lively and everyone is in good spirits. Maybe that is just the beer talking? But still, a perfect place for large or small groups.

The Beers
Cases of Night Cap 
We started with the winter seasonal brew - The Ebenezer and then followed with their Haymaker Pale Ale. I know the Haymaker is more of a summer beer, but I love the rich, crisp flavors. It is always a nice beer to start with. The Ebenezer has more hops than the Haymaker but has a nice sweet malt finish with flavors of barley.

They also had two other seasonal beers this year - Nightcap Winter Ale and Old Knucklehead. I really liked the Nightcap because it was similar to the Ebenezer but sweeter with more caramel flavors.

Check out all their ales and ingredients here.

The Grub
chicken sandwich
For dinner, we ordered the Brewhouse Macaroni + Cheese, House Smoked Pulled Pork and the Spicy Haymaker Chicken Sandwich. I will sum up the meal with a plus about each dish.

Mac n' Cheese - topped with crushed up house-made kettle chips...yum.
Pulled Pork Sandwich - get it just for the potato salad (the sandwich is traditional but good)
Chicken Sandwich - the bread was awesome and the chipotle mayo has a nice kick to it.

Check out the brewpub on 13th and NW Marshall  OR visit the Ale House in SE on Hawthorne.

  1. Now I really wish I had a legitimate reason for visiting Oregon! That Mac and Cheese looks So. Darn. Good.

  2. Yummm! I know! Endless eats in Heaven!! I have provided a ‘semi-colon’ to help U.S. halt this madness. Here's EIGHT blogs YOU may steal/plagiarize to thy heart's content (don't find that very off'n, doya? Just like to give my piece of cranium to the world); be warned, however: Upstairs in Heaven Above, all of my EIGHT blogs of wisdom and avant-garde-efficaciousness will be attributed to moi, aussi. Though, I don't think you'll care one-way-or-the-other in the Great Beyond. God bless.

  3. Man oh man that is making me hungry and I just ate!

  4. Your blog is lovely, one of my favorite thing to do is eat, and next to that is reading about food. I can't imagine how you could eat like this though, you must make really good money. Ah I was just trying to eat out less recently, now you are shaking my resolve, by adding such a good excuse (blog about it) to it! darn...

  5. I live in Scotland, and "Good eats" are hard to come by in the place I'm in, so I just love reading inspiring food stories to get me in the mood for cooking. Pulled Pork sounds amazing btw...

  6. Oh this looks really good!!!!!!
