While walking the aisles of our nearby grocery store, we spotted something new from one of the oldest breweries in the region, two new beers.

Cutting to the chase, Bridgeport has just released (technically around late December) two beers to the market, Cafe Negro Coffee Infused Porter and Kingpin Double Red Ale.

We crafted these beers after seeing room in our current line-up for cutting edge brews that willcomplement our ‘heritage’ beers like the IPA or Blue Heron, commented Jeff Edgerton, BridgePort’s Brewmaster.

We’re really proud to bring these two styles to the ever evolving beer culture of the Pacific Northwest.

During the cold conditioning the process, they added the blend, which produced "subtle coffee aromas otherwise lost during boil and fermentation."

"... a full-flavored, red-colored ale that uses a rarely-grown Willamette Valley Hop varietal
known as Liberty Hops from fourth generation hop farmer John Annen of Annen Bros. Farm in Silverton,
Oregon. Jeff and his team of brewers also used rye and caramel malt leading to a unique flavor profile;
triple-hopped for bitter aroma and a unique dry-hopped character."
