Portland & Milwaukie, Oregon –
Breakside Brewery is introducing a new draft only winter seasonal called Vienna Coffee Beer in two different versions while celebrating with a Bicycle Pub Crawl, free Donuts, Pints and Live Music this Saturday, December 12th from 10am – 3pm at Velo Cult in Portland.
Breakside is releasing two versions of Vienna Coffee Beer simultaneously, each with a different cold brew concentrate from Stumptown. Both versions will be draft-only and be available through December. Each has it’s own distinct coffee flavor and it’s encouraged to try them side-by-side. The two versions are Vienna Coffee Beer with:
Ethiopian Nano Challa Coffee – experimental coffee beer made with European kilned malts, fermented at cool temperatures, and dosed with cold Ethiopian Nano Challa toddy from Stumptown Coffee.
OG Cold Brew – Classic blend of Latin America beans that Stumptown uses in their super popular bottled Cold Brew Coffee.

Vienna Coffee Beer description:
A Style-Defying Coffee Beer Brewed with Our Friends at Stumptown Coffee
A few years ago, we set out to create a new kind of coffee beer–instead of a stout or porter with coffee, we wanted to create a light colored, malt-forward, rich base beer which would dovetail into the nutty, chocolatey, and fruity flavors of a lightly roasted coffee.
Our Vienna Coffee Beer is the delicious result of this effort, achieved after numerous trial batches. We use three of our favorite ‘character malts’ — sweet Vienna, toasty Melanoidin and Hazelnut-like CaraMunich — Along with a rich base of English Golden Promise to create a base beer that doesn’t fit into any style category, but it matches perfectly with the lightly roasted cold brew provided to us with our friends at Stumptown Coffee. A cool fermentation and soft water profile allow the malt and coffee flavors to shine; we hope that you find this coffee beer to be as inventive and refreshing as we do. Cheers!
Malts: Two-Row, Golden Promise, Vienna, Malanoidin, Caramunich
Hops: Hallertau Blanc
