Small Oregon coastal brewer Public Coast Brewing Co. has launched a Blueberry Hard Seltzer made from their own local farm grown blueberries. The Cannon Beach-based Public Coast is using blueberries from their Banks, OR farm and unrefined cane sugar to craft the crisp, light and gluten-free 4.5% ABV summer quencher.
“In these early days of summer, few things are as refreshing as our new Blueberry Hard Seltzer,” said Will Leroux, Public Coast’s head brewmaster. “With fresh blueberries harvested from our very own farm, this low-alcohol, easy-to-drink beverage is a fun addition to our line-up of brews, each of which is inspired by the beautiful, lush region in which we live.”
Public Coast’s Blueberry Hard Seltzer joins the NW Honey Red Ale in the brewery’s Farm Stand Series, highlighting ingredients grown at its sister property, Public Coast Farm, located at the base of the Coastal Range in Banks, Ore. The Blueberry Hard Seltzer is for sale on-tap and in cans at Public Coast’s brewpub in Cannon Beach.

About Public Coast Farm
Oregon’s historic Route 26, known to Portlanders as the Sunset Highway, has welcomed generations of families traveling to and from the coast on its forested byway. Now Public Coast Farm sits on that very route, straddling West Dairy Creek at the base of the Coastal Range, on a 40-acre site lush with blueberry bushes, beehives, fruit orchards and soon-to-be-planted hops. The farm is fertile ground for the farm’s sister properties – the Stephanie Inn, Surfsand Resort, Wayfarer Restaurant & Lounge and Public Coast Brewing Co. – each of which incorporate Public Coast Farm’s fresh ingredients into delicious dishes and seasonal beers.
