Tap Handle #245: Bridgeport - India Pale Ale

I had my eye on this tap for some time and just had to have it. I got the tap at a great price. It features the iconic St. John's Bridge in Northwest Portland. The St. John's Bridge (pictured right) is a steel suspension bridge, built in 1931, that links North Portland to Northwest Portland by spanning the Willamette River. Many scenes in the TV show Grimm are filmed near the bridge, and this tap itself was one of the ones I mentioned as being visible in the TV show Leverage (in which the last season was filmed in the Bridgeport Brewpub).

Bridgeport India Pale Ale is deep golden in color, with a floral, citrusy aroma and a full hop flavor with a subtle bitterness, and is double fermented. It has won numerous gold and silver medals at various competitions. Recommended food pairings are grilled lamb, spicy curry, Gorgonzola, and carrot cake. Weighted average on is 3.51 out of 5.
