To celebrate the release of their new East coast style Hazy IPA (and to give a nod to Portland’s favorite holiday, 4/20), BridgePort Brewing will open its doors to the public for a spring party celebrating the Hazy IPA on the haziest day of the year! Guests can expect $4.20 pints, happy hour priced beer cocktails, a DJ, and complimentary brewery tours.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place on Friday, April 20th from 4:30pm-7pm.
The Hazy IPA creates a ton of hop flavor while keeping hop bitterness low. We use our pale malt combined with Malted and Un-malted White Wheat to create a smooth and slightly hazy background malt flavor. We then do something that we’ve never done before: we don’t add any kettle hops! To accentuate the incredible flavors of Mosaic, Centennial, and Liberty hops, we add all of the brewhouse hops in the Hopjack after the boil. This way we capture as much of the aroma of these excellent hops without creating a lot of bitterness. Near the end of fermentation we dry hop with Mosaic and an Experimental hop from John I. Haas.
The Hazy IPA is now available in six-packs (12oz.) for purchase in stores across 12 states.
