Breakside Brewery Releasing B-Sides 7/30

imageFrom Breakside:

On Saturday July 30th, Breakside Brewery presents an illustrious new line of B-Sides, barrel-aged sour beers and wild ales that comprise a veritable mix tape of blends from vintage or unreleased beers. The initial offering is of eight new 750ml bottled beers with new labels, part of a new series the brewery has been working on for 2+ years. 

"All of these are "blended" beers," comments Breakside's Brewmaster Ben Edmunds. "That is, we approached this series in the winemaking tradition of creating certain cuvees. Pairing & blending barrels that worked together to create harmonious and balanced different beers. Most of these beers did not start as ideas in and of themselves-- the ideas came to us through the blending process. Annus Mirabilis and The Man Who Made Dessert are the two that are a little more "project" based."

Breakside will debut the new B-Sides series at a limited ticketed party at the Milwaukie Taproom and Brewery on Saturday, July 30th. For this special party, Breakside will be offering 750ml bottles for a discounted $14 with a one-time chance to try all eight on tap, along with a selection of rare beers from the library on sale in bottles and on tap. Any remaining bottles of B-Sides will be sold exclusively at Breakside's two locations for $15 a bottle from then on. We repeat: this will be the only chance to try them all on tap. 

A $15 entrance ticket to the B-Sides launch party includes a script of 8 tickets for 5 oz pours of any of the special draft offerings for the evening. Additional tickets for draft beer will be $2/5 oz and can be purchased on site. All bottle sales are first come, first served.
