A Note on This Beer
Portland, Oregon and I don’t always see eye to eye. I enjoyed living there for a few years, but I'm a Seattle kid through and through. Mostly, I just hate the Timbers (Go Sounders!).
But P-town and I are in absolute, 100% agreement when it comes to Breakside Brewery. The PNW-based crew’s beloved beer is a craft staple in the Rose City and beyond!
Which makes it pretty dang exciting to get our hands on their Best of Craft Beer 2020 Gold-winning IPA for the first time in over three years!
To craft What Rough Beast, the PDX crew started with a soft, smooth brew and hopped it with Mosaic, Citra, and Columbus for Hazy succulence with a West Coast edge.
Nectarous waves of drippy pineapple, bright blueberry, and zesty tangerine splash against coastlines of northwest pine and grapefruit pith. It’s all so refreshingly crisp, balanced, and harmonious, I’d gladly sit through a Timbers match in the taproom just to enjoy one. In fact, I have.
Luckily, you don’t have to head west to get your hands on some — and you can watch whatever you want while you enjoy it! Or, for that really authentic experience, you could put on some Decemberists and stand under a sprinkler — it’ll basically be like a trip to Portland.
What Rough Beast has claimed gold at GABF and the Best of Craft Beer Awards!
Paste Magazine named Breakside one of the Top 20 Breweries of the Decade!
