Bridgeport Kingpin

I recently took a trip to Seattle for my best friend’s stagette. Taking the cheapest coach bus route from Vancouver we could possibly find, I was in definite need of a beverage to cushion the late Friday night arrival. (Ok, yes, it was only 9:32pm, but it felt much worse.) Luckily, we found a little market on the way to the hotel and I picked up this lovely refreshment from Oregon. A triple hopped double red ale, I wasn’t sure what exactly to expect. When you start throwing around multiples of flavour, citing rye, malt and generous hops, I thought, is it going to be enjoyable? Or a struggle? But I was won over by the promise of 7.5% to take the edge off so I jumped in. And I’m glad I did. This little beer is not really so little for its size at 12 oz. It’s slightly sweet, definitely hoppy, but an almost Belgian style delivery. Delicious 🙂
