Portland Brew Pub

Portland Gritty's copper sign

  • Gritty’s Portland Brew Pub opened in 1988. It became Maine’s first brew pub since prohibition and a leader in the state’s craft brew revolution. Since then, locals and visitors from around the world have been enjoying fine, small-batch ales.  Gritty’s brews on-premise and serves great pub fare in an old world pub atmosphere.
  • Gritty’s Portland Brew Pub is the perfect place to experience the ambiance of Portland’s Old Port.
    Our Fore Street location is 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. Take in the street life on the cobblestones of Wharf Street from our 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!

    Come try this small-batch, hoppy blonde ale in Portland before it’s gone! Made with Maine grown grain from Blue Ox Malt House in Lisbon, Maine & hops from Aroostook County, this Blonde Ale comes in at 4.5% ABV.  Hoppy up-front with a nice malty balance on the end. We used Centennial and Cascade hops, Maine Pale and Vienna Malts along with Maine grown oats.
