Portland & Milwaukie, OR — Breakside Brewery will be releasing SIX new beers in bottles this Saturday, December 10th at their Milwaukie Tasting Room & Production Brewery. Three of these beers make up part two in the breweries new B-Sides series of blended vintage barrel-aged sour and wild beers, many 3+ years in the making. In addition to three new B-Sides, the brewery will also be releasing “Consummation” a sour pinot barrel-aged beer in 750ml bottles for $15 each, “Fourth Wave” a coffee beer aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels for $12 a 22oz bottle and finally “Mid Century Modern” an Abbey-style Dark Ale in 750ml bottles for $11.
Unlike the last B-Sides release, the brewery will not be doing this as a ticketed party, but rather we will be releasing the beers during regular hours. The B-Sides that we are releasing this time around are bottle-only, so we Breakside will be offering complimentary samples of the bottled beers for anyone who wants to taste before buying.
Just like the last round of B-Sides, these are all blended barrel-aged sour and wild beers, and some of these are beers that we’ve been working on for 3+ years. Those bottles will all debut on Saturday and will sell $15/750 ml.
The full specialty draft and bottle list for the party is listed below and the facebook event page is here:
