Vida Vegan Con and BridgePort Weekend Vegan Menu

Posted on Updated on

In Portland for the weekend? Or forever? Like beer? Like good vegan food? (Of course you do!)

In honor of Vida Vegan Con, both the BridgePort BrewPub and the BridgePort Ale House will be running special vegan dishes all weekend.

Oregon is home to the most microbreweries per capita. That means we have a lot of brewpubs here. Yes, we are incredibly lucky. And have incredible beer bellies to show for it. BridgePort, founded in 1984, is the oldest craft brewery in Oregon. Their beers can be found across the United States—chances are you’ve seen their award-winning IPA somewhere if you frequent quality beer joints around the country.


The BrewPub and the Ale House both feature seasonal and local farm-fresh food on their menus. There are always a few vegan options (it is Portland, after all), but this weekend they wanted to make it extra special for all the Vida Vegan Con-ers coming to the Rose City.

BridgePort Ale House

3632 SE Hawthorne Blvd.

503-233-6540 (Call to reserve a table or just pop in)

The Ale House is offering a prix fixe 3-course meal for $22 all weekend.

The first course is a Chilled Cucumber Soup, a cool summer soup with cucumber, almond, tomato, and chili oil. This is followed by Summer Vegetable Lasagna: grilled squash and eggplant layered with a cashew/roasted red pepper cream, smoked tomato vinaigrette, and sweet ginger arugula coulis. For dessert they are serving up Peach Berliners: fried dough rolled in cinnamon sugar, with grilled peaches and bourbon peach coulis.

Hello. You had me at bourbon.  Oh, and also Chilled Cucumber Soup.

The prix fixe dinner is available Thursday through Sunday evening, 5 pm to close.

No reservations necessary, just swing on by!

The BrewPub is running an already-popular special throughout the weekend. The Portland’s Garden dish is local zucchini stuffed with fire-roasted corn, black beans, cherry tomatoes, basil, lime, ancho chili, and miso bbq sauce, and topped with cumin roasted kale chips. (I repeat: cumin roasted kale chips. Holler.) This special will run Thursday night through Sunday, 5 pm until close.

Note: The BrewPub sold out of the Zucchini Garden special on Thursday night, so get on it, kiddos!

Both the BrewPub and the Ale House provide vegan dishes on their menu all the time; check out the online menu for seasonal specialties.
