Breakside Brewing Company out of Portland makes some solid beers. I really enjoy their Wanderlust IPA, their seasonal Salted Caramel Stout and their Bourbon Barrel-Aged Aztec. Now, Breakside has two new beers: Lunch Break ISA and Amuse Belgian-Style Ale, and they’ll be pairing them up with sandwiches from Mammoth in Seattle this Friday, March 13th.
Here is some more information about these two new beers from Breakside Brewing Company:
Lunch Break ISA
Lunch Break is our hop forward session beer, built for enjoying any time of day. Whether you call this beer a Session IPA, American Pale Ale, India Session Ale, Mini IPA, or something totally different, we know that you’ll find this beer to be full of juicy, classic hop flavor with just enough malt backbone to keep things in balance. We reserve some of our favorite hops–Simcoe, Amarillo, Cascade and Centennial–to use in this beer, which gives the aroma a heady mix of lemongrass, orange marmalade, grapefruit, pine and resin. Hop heads who seek a big punch of hops in the nose need look no further!
4.7% ABV 28 IBU.AmuseThis characterful session Saison is a true delight for the palate! Notes of white pepper, coriander, orange, freshly cut flowers, and ginger come together beautifully in this easy-drinking Belgian-style Farmhouse beer. The delicate balance of herbal hop aromatics and spicy yeast flavors make this beer light, spritzy and refreshing.“Amuse” is a Chameleon-like word with many meanings, and here, it means to have fun, to enjoy oneself. Amuse is a beer to enjoy with friends: to kick off a meal, to enjoy on a sunny afternoon outdoors, to share as a gift. We hope you’ll find drinking this beer as fun and amusing as it is for us to make. Cheers!
