Breakside To Release New Beers & Bottles For Zwickelmania
"To celebrate Zwickelmania—the premier beer tourism event in Oregon--Breakside Brewery (820 NE Dekum) will debut three beers and release new bottles for the event. Beginning at 11 AM this Saturday, the brewery will be open for tours and free samples of beer. On tap for the event will be Breakside’s American Wheat—a classic American-style ‘Hefeweizen’ with a touch of Centennial hop character, as well as two versions of a dry-hopped gin barrel-aged IPA: Citra Gin IPA and Simcoe Gin IPA. The Gin IPAs will be on draught throughout the day and will be available in very limited quantities in 750 ml bottles for take away. Breakside brewer Sam Barber, who racked the Gin IPAs over this past weekend, said “the mix of hop and juniper character is truly lovely.” For the event, the brewery also plans to serve the rest of its specialty Lavender Fudge Stout, which was tapped earlier this week for an event at Saraveza.
In other brewery news, Breakside will be featured at a beer dinner at The Bent Brick on March 19. This dinner will include the debut of a Bourbon Barrel-Aged Tripel that was made specifically for the dinner. Late last year, bar manager Adam Robinson and owner Scott Dolich purchased a single barrel’s worth of bourbon from Buffalo Trace distillery. The bourbon, now available at The Bent Brick, is their own ‘barrel select’ version, but in addition to getting the whiskey, Robinson and Dolich also became the proud recipients of the barrel that had held it. According to Breakside brewmaster Ben Edmunds, “Adam and Scott approached us about brewing a beer into the barrel that had held their bourbon, and so we sat down and planned out this beer as well as the dinner around it. The Bourbon-Barrel Tripel will be featured with the main course at the dinner, and I expect that over the next couple of months we’ll release unoaked, 100% barrel-aged, and blended versions of the beer.” Other beers for the dinner will include a new French farmhouse ale made with the Blaugies yeast strain, and the last keg of the brewery’s Sourdough Ale. Information regarding the dinner, including the full menu and pricing, is available by contacting The Bent Brick directly at (503) 688-1655 or by visiting The Bent Brick."
