Breakside Introduces Big Country, First in Series of Limited Releases

Breakside Brewery is excited to present the first in a series of limited release, seasonal beers available in both draft and bottles with Big Country.

Our take on a winter ale is something uncommon in the Northwest: a rich and balanced strong ale inspired by the starkbiers and weinnachtsbiers sold in winter in the open air markets of Germany. Malt driven notes of orange, cocoa, candied fruit, and toast dominate the aroma and flavor of this beer. the body is luscious and full and gives way to a refreshing, spicy finish.

7.8% ABV 36 IBU

Availability: from 11/28/2013 until 2/1/2014 in 50L, 1/6 bbl and 22 oz bottle in OR, WA, BC, and Idaho.

Malts: American Two Row, Munich, Melanoidin and German Carafa

Hops: Summit, Mt. Hood and Styrian Aurora

Suggested food pairings; melted Swiss raclette & roasted potatoes͝ winter salad of fennel and blood orange͝ hearty venison and lamb stews͝ spicy, tomato based Indian dishes, such as vada pav and chicken tikka masala͝ Oysters Rockefeller͝ squash galette with goat cheese͝ spicy chile relleno with picadillo or cheese͝ traditional jambalayas͝ Szechuanstyle cumin beef.
