Portland, Ore... BridgePort Brewing Company, Oregon’s original craft brewery, released today their annual Old Knucklehead barley wine for the 17th year in a row. This award-winning beer is brewed with Caramel and dark-roasted 2-row malts along with American hops, prominently featuring Chinooks.
The beer is then barrel aged in American White Oak, bringing out the vanilla, toffee and rich cherry notes which balance the robust malt sweetness. Labeled as BridgePort’s “sipping” beer, it’s the perfect brew to really taste and enjoy the complex flavor profile.
“Hands down, I love this beer,” states Jeff Edgerton, BridgePort Brewmaster. “There’s a reason we’ve been brewing Old Knucklehead for 17 years. It’s the perfect beer to settle in with in the new year and enjoy during the colder months. If you haven’t had a chance to try this beer, I highly recommend you grab a pint or 22oz. while it’s still available.”
