An Imperial Russian Stout to Kick Off the Season
PORTLAND, Ore. – November 1, 2016 – BridgePort Brewing Company, Oregon’s original craft brewery today announced the release of Siren’s Sound, an Imperial Russian Stout, available in bottles and on-draft in November. With leaves changing and rain falling, this big stout is the perfect dark beer to ring in this season in the Pacific Northwest.
Siren’s Sound was brewed to be a little devious, just like the Sirens of lore. BridgePort’s brewers used a monstrous amount of De-bittered Black Malt, Midnight Wheat, and roasted barley to create a beer with a huge flavor profile and a sneaky 9.0% ABV and 75 IBU. Bringing balance to the brew, brewers used Sterling Hops in the kettle and finished off the beer with a dry hop dose of Mt. Hood’s for a special twist on this Imperial Russian Stout.
“For our big brews, we really enjoy making balanced beers with big, complex flavor profiles,” states Jeff Edgerton, Brewmaster of BridgePort Brewing Company. “Our brewers outdid themselves with this one – it’s definitely one of my favorites. I highly recommend grabbing a couple bottles of Siren’s Sound for a family gathering where you can sit around and really enjoy the beer and the company.”
In addition to the new Siren’s Sound, BridgePort’s distinctive holiday brew, Ebenezer Ale, is back for the 17th year. Derived from four different roasted malts and a blend of local and imported hops, Ebenezer is a strong ale complemented by a smooth complex palate. Pour Ebenezer in your glass and you’ll experience a full-bodied, deep mahogany colored brew with a malty first taste that finishes with delicious caramel notes.
Siren’s Sound and Ebenezer Ale is available in limited quantities on-draft and in 22oz. bombers at BridgePort BrewPub (1313 NW Marshall St., Portland, Ore.) and where BridgePort is sold in the Pacific Northwest.
