BridgePort Brewing Co. just announced their Second Annual HoptoberFest PDX Block Party! A few weeks ago, I joined BridgePort Brewmaster Jeff Edgerton on a trip to pickup a batch of Centennial Hops to be used in their Hoptoberfest Fresh Hop IPA. You can read about our visit to Crosby Hop Farm here. I'm looking forward to finally tasting that beer, and you can taste it too! Check out the details below for event hours and ticket information.

This year’s celebration will honor BridgePort’s 2018 HoptoberFest IPA Fresh Hop Beer:
Featured Beer Details: This year we are changing gears and making a malty Marzen beer base first. We use Pilsner and Munich malts to create a rich, malty, Marzen-style base. We ferment this with our German lager yeast. We allow this to ferment for a few days then we dry-hop generously with fresh Centennial, Amarillo, and Mt. Hood hops to create a unique fresh hop flavor like no other. ABV: 7.0%, BU’s: 40
