PORTLAND, Ore. … Breakside Brewery and Von Ebert Brewing have partnered to create a new Italian Pilsner named Lucia that’s being released today.
The two breweries recently held a united brew day at Breakside’s NE Dekum Pub location to create Lucia. The 5.4% ABV pilsner was brewed with Italian barley and German hops, then dry-hopped with Grungeist. Its bright color and crushable body inspired the name Lucia, derived from the Latin word Lux, meaning light.
Following the initial release, Lucia will also be available at Breakside’s NE Dekum Pub location.
