When Gritty's Portland Brew Pub opened in 1988 it became Maine's first brew pub since prohibition and a leader in the state's microbrew revolution. Since then, locals of every stripe and visitors from around the world have been enjoying fine, small-batch ales brewed on-premise, great pub fare and a real old world pub atmosphere.
Gritty's Portland Brew Pub is the perfect place to experience the ambience of Portland's Old Port. Our Fore Street location is right in the heart of the historic district. Pull up a chair at our copper-topped bar, strike up a conversation at our beer hall style tables, or take in street life on the cobblestones of Wharf Street from our basement Brewery Bar patio.We're open everyday and you're always welcome.
Gritty's has become a Maine institution, garnering many awards for Best Bar, Best Brew Pub and Best Beer. Stop in, have a pint and see where the legend began. Cheers!
