Opened: 1984

Annual Production: 30,000 bbl

Oregon's oldest microbrewery. Big place...an ex-warehouse. No barstools when I visited in 1993! It's now owned by the same folks who own Spoetzl Brewery of Austin TX, makers of Shiner Bock.

BridgePort BrewPub reopened in February 2006 after an extensive remodeling.
