Let the PDX Pretzel Throw Down begin: Bridgeport Brewery

Pretzels Exposed to Flash

I hereby start the search for the Portland best pretzel. PDX is no Philly, but there is still a unique array of pretzels to be found (especially at microbreweries) around town. If you have any suggestions please let me know. Deschutes Brewery is next.

I checked out Bridgeport Brewery after some Core Power Yoga with my friends Sara and Nicole. We were starving and assumed the pretzels ($7) came in servings of one so we ordered three of these plates, which resulted in some doggie bags. The pretzels are made in house, of course, and come with a tangy sweet ropewalk mustard and porter cheddar spread. The pretzel itself had a standard dough consistency although I would have liked to see the three pretzels become two to create more pillowy innards as opposed to dry and often times bitter surface area. The ends got a little hard and actually tasted like Snyder's of Hanover. The cheese and mustard dips were a perfect salty/creamy vs sweet/tangy pairing.  These were good, but by no means blew my socks off.

Anna, There's a region in Ontario (Kitchener) that celebrates the Oktoberfest festival every October. The people of the area are of Germanic descent and there are many fresh pretzels available in bakeries around that region.
