PORTLAND, Ore.— October 6, 2014 —BridgePort Brewing Company introduces the next beer in the Hop Czar IPA Series, Hop Czar Cascadian Dark IPA. Taking a cue from the aggressive hoppiness and higher alcohol of the original Hop Czar, Hop Czar Cascadian Dark IPA combines Oregon hops and full flavored malts for a smooth, drinkable IPA.
Hop Czar Cascadian Dark IPA is the darkest beer that BridgePort has ever brewed. This is the result of using both dark malt, and for the first time at BridgePort, Midnight Wheat.
“When people think of the Hop Czar, they think hops,” said Jeff Edgerton, BridgePort’s brewmaster. “We created this beer to harken back to the original Hop Czar in high IBUs, but we changed it up by experimenting with different malts to get a true Cascadian Dark IPA.”
To try the newest Hop Czar, visit BridgePort Brewery, located at 1313 N.W. Marshall Street in Portland, Oregon or look for it wherever BridgePort beer is sold.
