Every month the Migration crew will be visiting a different brewery. We decided to start with Portland icon Bridgeport Brewing down in the old Pearl District. Bridgeport has been making beers since the mid 1980's and has always been considered one of the regions most successful founding craft breweries. Head Brewer Jeff Edgerton took us on an extended tour of the 20,000sf facility, including the chemistry lab and extensive bottling line.
It was amazing to see such a large scale operation and to hear about the challenges and extreme focus on making clean, consistent beers. We appreciate Bridgeport's awesome hospitality and look forward to returning the favor at Migration (even if our tour is a little shorter)!
