OREGON CITY, Ore. — Craft beer lovers and baseball fans will be able to “get their pickle on” at all Portland Pickles baseball games this summer, thanks to Coin Toss Brewing Co.’s “Caught in a Pickle Lager.” The beer is a unique and refreshing blend of bread-and-butter pickle juice and the brewery’s house lager. Originally created as a one-off beer for the Portland Pickles Great West Brew Fest in 2016, Caught in a Pickle Lager is a fan favorite every time it appears at the Coin Toss taproom in Oregon City.
“You really need to be eating a hot dog and sitting at a baseball game while drinking this beer,” said Coin Toss Brewing founder Tim Hohl. “We are big baseball fans at Coin Toss and are thrilled to be a part of every Pickles home game this season.”
Portland Pickles owner Bill Stewart agrees. “It’s a fun partnership with a great local company, and serving a pickle infused beer is truly a one-of-a-kind experience for our fans.”
Look for Caught in a Pickle Lager on tap at the main tap trailer at Walker Stadium starting Thursday, May 31, when the Pickles host a pre-season exhibition prior to the Home Opener on Friday, June 1.
