Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), the first Certified B Corporation brewery in the Pacific Northwest, has announced it will honor mug club memberships from recently closed breweries, cideries, and bars in the Portland area.
Northern California’s veteran craft brewery North Coast Brewing Company has announced a new fall Berliner Weisse interpretation, Cranberry-Quince. This is a spontaneously soured Berliner-Weisse, brewed authentically and only 4.1% ABV with the addition of quince fruit and Oregon cranberries.
More from a press release:
“We like to say that fall doesn’t begin here in Fort Bragg, California until our Cranberry-Quince Berliner Weisse is released,” says North Coast Brewing Company Brewmaster, Chuck Martins. “Growing up, quince trees were in my backyard, and when creating the fall release in our Berliner Weisse trio, we decided to use quinces as one of our featured fruits. Their subtle sweetness complements the acidity of Oregon cranberries to give our Cranberry-Quince a tangy and sweet flavor. It’s a crowd favorite at fall celebrations.”
Cranberry-Quince is the final release in North Coast Brewing’s seasonal Berliner Weisse trio. Each North Coast Brewing Berliner Weisse is brewed with seasonal fruits, creating a unique flavor profile to match each season. Cranberry-Quince’s amber hue and noteworthy taste, make it the star of the fall drinking season, ideal for pairing with any holiday meal.
North Coast Brewing’s Cranberry-Quince Berliner Weisse is now available in 12 oz. 4 packs, 22 oz. bottles and ⅙ barrel kegs and can be found across the U.S. using North Coast Brewing’s beer locator.
