Press Release

The initial offering is of eight new 750ml bottled beers with new labels, part of a new series the brewery has been working on for 2+ years. 

"All of these are "blended" beers," comments Breakside's Brewmaster Ben Edmunds. "That is, we approached this series in the winemaking tradition of creating certain cuvees. Pairing and blending barrels that worked together to create harmonious and balanced different beers. Most of these beers did not start as ideas in and of themselves-- the ideas came to us through the blending process. Annus Mirabilis and The Man Who Made Dessert are the two that are a little more "project" based."

Breakside will debut the new B-Sides series at a limited ticketed party at the Milwaukie Taproom and Brewery on Saturday, July 30th. For this special party, Breakside will be offering 750ml bottles for a discounted $14 with a one-time chance to try all eight on tap, along with a selection of rare beers from the library on sale in bottles and on tap. Any remaining bottles of B-Sides will be sold exclusively at Breakside's two locations for $15 a bottle from then on. We repeat: this will be the only chance to try them all on tap. 

$15 entrance ticket to the B-Sides launch party includes a script of 8 tickets for 5 oz pours of any of the special draft offerings for the evening. Additional tickets for draft beer will be $2/5 oz and can be purchased on site. All bottle sales are first come, first served.
