Breakside Bon Vivant Hitting Retailers Now

breakside-bon-vivantPortland’s own Breakside Brewery has a brand spankin’ new limited release ready for the West this week, with Bon Vivant shipping to retailers now. This is a dry-hopped Belgian Golden Ale aged in Pinot Noir barrels, coming in at 8.4% ABV.

Expect to find Bon Vivant at select locations in Oregon, Washington and Colorado for a suggested retail price of $13 per 22oz bottle. A limited amount of draft will also be available at the brewery’s taproom and brewpub.

Commercial description:

In time for fall, we present Bon Vivant, a beer that celebrates two of Oregon’s great autumn crops: hops and grapes. We filled old Pinot Noir barrels from Archery Summit Winery with a hoppy Belgian golden ale and aged it for six months. The barrels contribute notes of light cherry, acidity, oak, and cola; mean- while the hops are Comet and Amarillo, varietals prized for their pungency and fruitiness. Together they harmonize beautifully with the yeast and malt character of the base beer.

A Bon Vivant is not only someone who relishes the luxuries of life– a good beer, a great wine, a delicious meal–but who also loves sharing those luxuries with friends. We hope that you’ll embrace that gregarious spirit as you enjoy this rare beer. Cheers! 8.4% ABV

Breakside Brewery is located at 5821 SE International Way in Milwaukie and 820 NE Dekum St in Portland, OR.
