Ordnance Brewing Launches Cans and 6-Packs

By  | 

Ordnance Brewing continues to make big moves from the small town of Boardman, Oregon, as the brewery has announced new 12oz cans and 6-packs. The farmer-owned brewery will take its two best-selling beers, EOD Double IPA and Bloops Blueberry Wheat, into 6-packs of 12 ounce cans and roll them out across Oregon and Washington in early April.

“We have been really happy with the growth of both beers. EOD is a reasonably-priced, easy-drinking, delicious Double IPA, and is prime for the single serve format,” noted Ordnance Managing Partner, Craig Coleman. “Bloops Blueberry Wheat keeps surprising us with steady growth across the Pacific Northwest because it is well balanced, not too sweet or fruity. A delicious wheat beer with just enough blueberry aroma and flavor.”

The can design, created by Chris Noud of Now Design in Salem. It echoes the current bottles with historic images of the World War II support effort that took place at Ordnance, Oregon, are screened in the background. Those seeking key details will find the ABV and IBU up front.

“We’ve carried the original label design forward to be sure people know it is us and the beer they are seeking,” noted Ordnance Director of Marketing, Dewey Weddington. “We’ve always taken the approach that the brewery comes first and then the beer. This design follows that format while establishing a clear identity for the beer.”

Brewed with blueberries from our local farms,  Bloops is a balanced wheat beer with just enough blueberry aroma and flavor to provide something delicious without being sweet and overly fruity. Bloops has grown from being a seasonal to a core beer due simply to heavy customer demand.
ABV: 4.5 IBU: 21
Malt: PNW White Wheat, PNW Pale Ale, Dextrapils, Caramel Wheat
Hops: Nugget, Cascade
Flavor: Proprietary blend and process.

Our take on a West Coast IPA.  Crafted with generous  additions of classic hops, including Mt. Hood and Columbus, at every step in  the brewing process. While the hops are hard to miss, it is full of flavor, ranging from  a light fruity sweetness to rich floral tones.  Add in a higher ABV and this is a hop bomb of desire for sure.
ABV: 7.8 IBU: 80+
Malt: PNW Pale Ale, PNW White Wheat, Aromatic
Hops: Magnum, Nugget, Columbus, Mt. Hood, Cascade
