Portland, OR — On July 5, 2017 at 11:59:59 AM, Ground Breaker Brewing (Ground Breaker Revives Route 20, a Coast to Coast IPA
Route 20 IPA, a single-hop India Pale Ale, returns at Ground Breaker Brewing. Named after the longest continuous road in the United States, this gluten-free IPA clocks in at 50 IBU and 6% alcohol by volume. Route 20 is a unique IPA that was designed to get all of its bittering, flavor and aroma from late additions of Santiam hops. Santiam hops, known for their floral aroma, carry hints of peppery spice. The hop is unique for its high amounts of farnesene which produces a fragrance that has been compared to magnolia flowers. Farnesene is found in strawberries, apples, pears, and many other plants.
The road that is this IPA’s namesake spans an incredible 3,365 miles from Newport, Oregon to Boston, Massachusetts. “It was probably the shortest amount of time we’ve ever spent naming anything. I was on my way to Steens Mountain, heading through the Santiam Pass,” said James Neumeister, Founder and Head of R&D. “That’s when the name came to me.”
With this year’s release of Route 20 IPA, Ground Breaker is celebrating this coast-to-coast IPA by pouring it at the Gluten Free and Allergy Friendly Expo in Worcester, MA. The Gluten Free and Allergy Friendly Expo is the largest gluten-free and allergy friendly event in the United States.
Route 20 IPA is currently available at the Ground Breaker Gastropub in Portland, OR and will begin to be distributed to Ground Breaker territories in the second week of July. Ground Breaker beers are distributed in Massachusetts by Atlantic Distributing.
