Portland Brewing Releases Super S.M.A.S.H.


PORTLAND, Ore. – With July heat in full effect and Oregon Craft Beer Month underway, it’s the perfect time to double your summer fun with an extra special brew. In celebration of the 28th annual Oregon Brewers Festival, Portland Brewing is unveiling a limited-release Super S.M.A.S.H. Double Pale Ale. The specialty version of Portland Brewing’s summer seasonal takes its first-ever single malt and single hop (S.M.A.S.H.) Pale Ale to the next level.

Similar to its pale ale cousin, Super S.M.A.S.H. features Goldpils Viena malts, known for their toasty flavor, and an extra heavy dose of bright, citrusy Simcoe hops. The result is a refreshing pale ale with a 7% ABV, slightly higher than the original 5.6%. “We were thrilled with how our S.M.A.S.H. beer turned out, so when it came time to think of a special beer for the Oregon Brewers Festival, the obvious choice was to double down on S.M.A.S.H.,” says head brewer Ryan Pappe. “It is still a single malt, single hop beer, but we raised the original gravity to boost the alcohol, while increasing the hops to keep pace.”

Super S.M.A.S.H. makes its debut exclusively at the Oregon Brewers Festival from July 22-26 at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland. When the festival ends, you’ll be able to find this small-batch beer on tap at select Portland-area pubs, growler stations, restaurants and Portland Brewing’s Taproom for a limited-time.
