Breakside Brewery 3 New Barrel Aged Beers Release Dec 21st
Breakside Brewery will be releasing 3 new barrel aged bottled beers on Saturday, December 21st at the Breakside Milwaukie Taproom from 10am – 8pm.
Aquavit Barrel-Aged Braggot honey ale aged for eight months in a Krogstad Aquavit barrel with strong notes of anise and caraway, restrained oak and a rounded finish. a unique, golden barrel-aged beer. 10.2% ABV
Bourbon Woody the latest release from our barrelaging program is a blend of two beers: it is 80% English old ale aged in Bourbon barrels for seven months and 20% freshly brewed English strong ale. the result is a complex strong beer with strong bourbon notes, a firm body, and a bright effervescence. 10% ABV
Beaujolais avec Brett in celebration of the release of the 2013 Beaujolais Nouveau, we release our own tribute to the Gamay grape. a strong sour ale fermented with wild yeast and bacteria that pours a beautiful violet color. the Oregongrown Gamay grapes used in this beer come to us courtesy of Tom and Kate Monroe of the SE Wine Collective. bottle conditioned with Brettanomyces for added complexity and cellarability. wine and beer together forever! 8.2% ABV
plus the draft debut of some of our finest new beers:
Beer #100: Safe Word Triple IPA
a hop monster that pushes you to the edge of your comfort zone how do you end a year in which you’ve made 100 different beers? our brewmaster and director of brewing operations decided that there was only one beer that could serve as our final release in 2013: a hoppy behemoth that used over 7 pounds of hops per barrel of beer, got two separate dry hop additions, and clocks in at over 11% alcohol. this triple IPA is not for vanilla types. you need to have a deeply masochistic streak to desire this much hoppiness in your beer. it is a bruising, tonguescraping, agressive beer with more punch than anything we’ve ever made. we’ve found pleasure through pain; we hope you do too.
Debuting on draft this Saturday:
- Hop Burst IPA
- Saison à Fleurs
- Noble Belgian Blonde
