Mexican-Style Lager – $6 per pint
A popular style that is very easy to drink and refreshing, our take on the Mexican Style lager is very light in color, body, and alcohol. This beer is great when you want to take a break from big hop bombs, or just prefer a traditional beer that harkens back to the easy drinking regional lagers of the 60’s and 70’s.
ABV: 4.8%
IBU’s: 14
Mint Julep – $6 per pint
You won’t need to travel to Louisville to get your Mint Julep fix during the Kentucky Derby this year. BridgePort is taking the classic favorite and recreating it in true Portland fashion – with beer!  BridgePort’s Mint Julep beer is a year old aged Old Knucklehead infused with mint and is perfectly refreshing while cheering on your favorite horse.
ABV: 8/82%
IBU’s: 16.5
