Press Release:
(Portland, OR) – Breakside Brewery will celebrate the release of six of their barrel aged and strong beers on Saturday, December 15 at the Breakside Brewpub located at 820 NE Dekum St. during regular pub hours, beginning at 12 p.m. The release of these specialty beers is the first bottling since Breakside Brewery’s anniversary last May.

· Bourbon Barrel-Aged Aztec Ale- A strong ale made with chocolate and chilies aged in Heaven Hill barrels

· Bourbon Barrel-Aged Old Woody- A collaboration beer with Wildwood aged in a Heaven Hill barrel
