Bridgeport’s 1st Ever Box Set

For the first time ever, BridgePort Brewing Company will release a 12-bottle variety pack with 4 different beers.  The Beervana Brewer’s Box, will include BridgePort IPA, Hop Czar, Kingpin and a seasonal selection.  According to a recent press release, once Kingpin Double Red Ale was released- they knew it was time.

“The Beervana Brewer’s Box will be distributed nationally and will feature three bottles each of:

  • IPA: Our award-winning IPA is brewed with a blend of five hop varieties
    (Cascade, Golding, Ahtanum, Crystal and Chinook) and presents a floral, citrusy aroma and full hop flavor, while downplaying the bitterness. The beer pours smooth in the glass, emitting its signature golden glow.
  • Hop Czar: An Imperial India Pale Ale brewed with over two pounds of whole leaf hop cones in each barrel. The Emperor of IBU’s, Hop Czar is triple hopped with four varieties (Nugget, Chinook, Centennial and Cascade) to produce an aggressively bitter, yet drinkable flavor.
  • Kingpin: This triple-hopped red features rye and caramel malt yielding a deep red color. Kingpin uses a rarely-grown Willamette Valley Hop varietal known as Liberty Hops from fourth generation hop farmer John Annen of Annen Bros. Farm in Silverton, Oregon.
  • Winter Seasonal, Dark Rain: Black Wheat and Dark Crystal Malt add dense color and mild smooth flavors to this intensely hopped Black Ale. This ale has a very drinkable, mid-level alcohol and bitterness that starts with roasted and hoppy aromatic notes and finishes with the dry hop character of the Nugget hop varietal. A Chinook, Crystal, Centennial and Cascade blend is used in our hopjack to provide full flavored background hoppiness.

Availability: 12oz Variety Box Set
