The Bridgeport Brewpub, located in the heart of Portland’s Pearl District, is a beautiful restaurant occupying a historic brick building. Oregon, alternately referred to as “Beertopia,” turned out to be even more vegetarian friendly than I thought it would. Even at a brewpub like this, there were vegetarian and vegan options. What did I opt for? Why, the BBQ burger (housemade beet and rice patty) of course. And it was deeeeeelicious! The BBQ sauce was spicy and savory, and the burger itself was surprisingly juicy and flavorful. While I know my choice was somewhat less than original, it was well worth it!
