Bridgeport's Trilogy 1 Returns as Conviction Pale Ale


BridgePort Brewing Co. just announced the release of Conviction Pale Ale, a new year-round beer. Well, it's not entirely new. Conviction was released last year under the name Trilogy 1. The Trilogy Series was a rotating beer series that commemorated BridgePort's 30th Anniversary. They asked customers to vote on their favorite and Trilogy 1 won.

I'm glad Trilogy 1 got the nod. It was my favorite of the three and you can see my original review here. Honestly, the last thing we need in the Northwest is another IPA (in my humble opinion). BridgePort's year-round lineup has been without a Pale Ale for a few years, so I'm glad to see one return. For more details, check out the brewery's news release below.

BRIDGEPORT BREWING ANNOUNCES NEW YEAR-ROUND BEER
 Trilogy 1, Winner from Trilogy Series, is back in 2015 as Conviction Pale Ale

PORTLAND, Ore.— January 27, 2015 — BridgePort Brewing Company, Oregon’s oldest craft brewery, proudly announced today the newest beer in its year-round line-up: Conviction Pale Ale, available now.

Throughout 2014, BridgePort fans had the chance to try each of the three Trilogy beers, created to celebrate the brewery’s 30th anniversary. At the end of the year, they placed their vote for which beer should come back as a year-round brew in 2015. Trilogy 1, a crystal dry-hopped pale ale, was the clear fan favorite and is now back on shelves in 2015 as Conviction Pale Ale.

“Last year, we came out with a record number of new beers for people to try. Don’t get me wrong, our team loves experimenting, but it’s also nice to have a beer that we all feel confident serving up to our fans throughout the seasons,” commented brewmaster Jeff Edgerton. “A large part of that confidence comes from the fact that Conviction was the fan-favorite so we know our fans already stand behind it.”

Conviction Pale Ale is an easy-to-drink, dry hopped pale ale that celebrates the incredible bounty of hops that come from Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The soft malt flavor and light body associated with pale ales  make them the perfect base for showcasing the Crystal hop, a favorite  amongst BridgePort brewers. The presence of Rye malt gives this beer a slightly spicy malt character and the Munich malts add a soft mouth feel.
