Coin Toss Brewing, the recently opened Oregon City brewery, will feature a pickle-infused beer, “Caught in a Pickle” lager, at the Great West Brew Fest this weekend. Held at Walker Stadium in southeast Portland, home of the Portland Pickles baseball team, the inaugural Great West Brew Fest this Friday and Saturday July 15-16th.

More from the press release:
Just one keg of this dill-icious beer exists, concocted especially for the festival, which runs this Friday and Saturday, prior to and during Portland Pickles baseball games.
After taste-testing juice from a half-dozen different types of pickles, the brewers at Coin Toss blended an entire gallon of juice from bread-and-butter pickles into a half-barrel of the brewery’s house lager to create a truly one-of-a-kind beer.
“We settled on bread-and-butter pickle juice because the flavor reminded us so much of eating a hot dog with relish at the ballpark,” said Coin Toss Brewing Co. founder Tim H
The two-day Great West Brew Fest is open on Friday, July 15, from 4pm to the conclusion of the seventh inning of the ballgame; and on Saturday, July 16 from 2pm until the  end of the seventh inning. With a ticket to the game, admission to the Great West Brew Fest is $10. A $20 admission provides entry to the festival and viewing of the game from the festival grounds. Admission includes a souvenir pint mug and four beer tastes.
Coin Toss Brewing Co. is a proud partner of the Portland Pickles baseball team. You can find Coin Toss beers on tap at Walker Stadium throughout the season.
