PORTLAND, Ore. — Oregon is arguably one of the best places to enjoy outside summer activities. It’s not uncommon to see bicyclists lugging freshly filled growlers from the pub, to inhale the sweet smell of barbeque in the air, and to see flowers in full bloom with bees a-buzzing. It’s the perfect time for Portland Brewing’s summer seasonal — Oregon Honey Beer.
Brewed with Oregon-sourced white clover honey, 2-Row Pale malt and Willamette and Nugget hops, Oregon Honey Beer is crisp and refreshing with just a hint of sweetness. Its light body pairs well with both fatty BBQ and refreshing salads, and at 4.8% ABV and 17 IBUs, you won’t regret reaching for a second round as the temperature rises.
“More than any other beer in the Portland Brewing archives, Oregon Honey Beer is the recipe we’ve been hearing the most about over the years since it stopped flowing from our taps,” says Portland Brewing head brewer Ryan Pappe. “Once we started revisiting beers from the archives, it was always a matter of when, not if, we would brew the next batch of Oregon Honey Beer.”
But like a flower in bloom, Oregon Honey Beer won’t be around forever. Find it in Oregon and Washington stores and bottle shops, as well as the Portland Brewing Company Taproom, between now and August 15. Oregon Honey Beer is available in 22 oz. bottles, 12 oz. 6-packs and on draft.
