New Bottle Aged Brew to be Released at This Year’s Great American Beer Festival, Oct. 11-13
PORTLAND, Ore. – October 10, 2012 – BridgePort Brewing Company, Oregon’s oldest craft brewery, is set to premiere its newest beer, Enchanted, at this year’s Great American Beer Festival in Denver,Colo. The new, very limited brew is an aged version of the brewery’s ever-popular Stumptown Tart from 2010. Enchanted is a Belgian Style Framboise infused with 2,000 pounds of Oregon red raspberries and then aged for two years in oak barrels.
“This is a special one for our team,” commented brewmaster, Jeff Edgerton. “The 2010 Stumptown Tart was a favorite not only amongst our loyal BridgePort fans – but also amongst our brewers. The only way to up the ante on that beer was to let it age in oak barrels for two years. The result is something surprising and pretty unforgetable.”
Enchanted has been described by the limited few who have tried it as presenting with an obvious berry wine taste and then finishing with the mellow flavor of oak and some extra-sparkling carbonation. This reserve beer will be available in limited quanity in Oregon only.
