A Note on This Beer
It’s rare to see true justice done to lavender. Yet fancy cocktail fans and foodies who love this herb know that when it’s done well, it’s as calming as a trip to a high-end day spa!
Today, Portland’s Breakside Brewing is rising to the challenge of crafting with lavender!
Winning the title of Brewery of the Year at the Oregon Beer Awards five times in a row, if any crew can nail a Lavender-infused brew, it’s Breakside.
And today’s Lavender Fizz Barrel-Aged Ale shows off a mastery of unique ingredients that cements Breakside’s name among the top craft champions. This brand new, limited-release bottle is like your all-inclusive pass to a day of pampering.
So go ahead, treat yourself to a fancy night in. Draw a hot bubble bath, lay out your fluffiest bathrobe, and pop the top on today’s effervescent pour.
To craft this indulging brew, Breakside ages a citrusy golden Pale Ale for several months in second-use Old Tom Gin casks.
Then, the brewers condition it on two types of hand-picked culinary lavender from Portland’s Sauvie Island Farm, placing the mega-relaxing herb front and center.
Each 6.1% ABV mouthful is like being served a top-shelf floral Gin Fizz with a twist of lemon zest by a fancy cocktail connoisseur, specially crafted just for you in the comfort of your own home.
Don’t get stuck on the waitlist for this one. Quickly add a bottle to your stash, and then relax knowing you’re in the elite circle of craft fans to score this relaxing escape in a bottle.
Go ahead, you deserve this.
