Portland Brew Pub

Lobster Roll at Gritty's Portland

  • 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!

    The Galactically Stoopid IPA is still on tap but going fast!

    This hazy, New England Style IPA has a big up-front hops blast and notes of pineapple. Brewed with a mix of Rohr pale malts, flaked oats, pilsner malts combined with Simcoe, Mosaic and Ella Hops.  At the end of the brew Larry dry-hopped the beer with 5 pounds of Galaxy hops. This IPA comes in at a whopping 7.2% ABV.
    Have you had the “Meddybemps Blueberry Ale” yet?
    We brewed this clean crisp ale using some of Maine’s finest hops plus a few pounds of pureed blueberries. The end result is the perfect refreshing summer ale that comes in around 5% ABV.
