Breakside Passionfruit Sour Ale back for summer 2016

Breakside Passionfruit Sour, a Great American Beer Festival silver medal winning sour, returns as a summer seasonal this week.

Our award­ winning sour ale returns as our official “summer seasonal.” Passionfruit Sour is brewed as a traditional German Berliner weisse, and then we add a unique, tropical twist. We use lactic acid­ producing bacteria to produce a beer that is light in body, extremely refreshing, and mouth puckeringly tart. The addition of passionfruit in our lagering tanks gives this beer an inviting stonefruit aroma.

Breakside Passionfruit Sour is a 22 ounce bottle offering, as well as draft, available from July through September.

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Passionfruit)
Hops: German Hersbrucker
Malts: American Two Row, German Wheat, CaraPils, Crystal 20L

Breakside La Tormenta Dry Hopped Sour back by demand

Breakside La Tormenta

Breakside La Tormenta, a dry-hopped sour ale has retuned to the lineup once again.

Breakside La Tormenta was a very popular small batch offering released in early 2014, prompting a wider release. This sour ale uses a blend of citrus-y, tropical hops that offset the strong sour notes of this beer.

Notes of blueberry, guava, grapefruit, and lemongrass are offset by a juicy acidity, medium body, and a moderate sweetness from caramel malt.

Breakside La Tormenta is available in 22oz bombers, and draft.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale
Hops: Amarillo, Equinox, Simcoe, Citra
Malts: Two Row, German Acidulated and Vienna Malts, Crystal 20L

Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft.
Return: Late October/November, 2015

7% ABV, 22 IBUs

Breakside Back to the Future IPA

A Pacific northwest collaboration debuts in June – Breakside Back to the Future IPA.

This new collaboration features Fremont Brewing (Seattle, WA) creating a big India pale ale, with a mix of fun hop varietals, like Azacca, Ella, Jarrylo, Equinox.

We specifically chose new varietals that we think have a lot of promise, and it’s named after the futuristic hops used in each version: Jarrylo and Equinox in Fremont’s, and Azacca and Ella in ours. These beers very might well introduce you to new hop varietals that will be front and center in many IPAs to come.
