PORTLAND, Ore. – ... BridgePort Brewing Company, Oregon’s oldest craft brewery, announced today the release of STUMPTOWN Tart Cherry Saison. Each year, STUMPTOWN Tart celebrates and highlights different fruit. This year, a variety of Pacific Northwest sour cherries are made the star by incorporating 2,000 pounds of northwest sour cherries into the brew enhancing the real cherry flavor.

“Our annual Stumptown Tart is usually a Belgian Style Ale but we decided to go a different direction for this release,” states brewmaster Jeff Edgerton. “We’ve been wanting to brew a Saison and are thrilled to introduce the style via our big brew STUMPTOWN Tart Cherry Saison.”

STUMPTOWN Tart Cherry Saison Stats:
IBUs:   15        ABV:    7.0%    OG:      15.85   Color:   Reddish-pink

For this beer, the brewers started with a malt base, which also contained wheat, and then used German and Czech hops to create a slightly hopped flavor to balance the sour cherries. The beer is fermented with Belgian Saison yeast. Following primary fermentation, they add the beautiful sour cherry puree and allow the beer to undergo a secondary fermentation of the natural cherry sugar. STUMPTOWN Cherry Saison brings together sweet and tart flavors producing a refreshing and drinkable beer.
