Complete the form below to tell us about the problematic review for Bridgeport Brewing Company and Public House, which says:
"I am pained to write anything negative about Bridgeport, the pub, which for me has been the archetype since I first darkened the door in 1990. Alas, the remodel is complete and they've ripped out the soul and character of the place. Make no mistake, the beer is top notch, a porter and IPA on cask at the same time, perfect on a March afternoon. Perfect also for a slice of pizza. Remember pizza by the slice, me too, but memories are all that are left, now you have to buy the whole pie. Mind where you sit too, you cannot have the pizza upstairs on the comfortable sofa, you cannot have the pizza where the long wooden tables used to be, you have to eat it in the designated section. May the saints help you if you try to order in one place and move to another. Do you remember the cartoons above the two best urinals in the whole town? Yeah they did move the urinals to the new restrooms, but this is no longer a place with cartoons on the wall, this is no longer a place with anything on the walls. A member of my party said it reminded him of being in Berlin, which seemed particularly apropos. For my part I had the distinct feeling that they were not catering to beer drinkers. The bartender knew her stuff and was great, but the servers just didn't know about beer or why it was special. It actually hurt to listen to them try to explain cask to folks at another table, although to their credit they were apologetic about “all the rules.” Gone also is the dartboard, there does not appear to be any seating on the loading dock and there is nothing to read, unlike the old days when they had papers available for patrons. Instead they now have one of those annoying people behind a lectern at the front door to direct you, which I suppose is important given all of the new rules. This used to be the perfect place to catch a cask pint on a lazy afternoon, meet up with friends, and it was The place to take any serious beer lover, now I guess I'll take them to the Tugboat. All that said, they still make great beer, wonderful beer, beer to write home about, but the pub is long gone, replaced by Pearl District chic, and it just makes me sad."
