Beer: Ebenezer Ale
Brewery:Bridgeport Brewing Co. Portland OR
Beer Details:

  • Style: Winter Warmer
  • ABV: 6.4 %
  • IBUs: 40

Commercial Description:
Our special Holiday brew is a smooth ale with a complex palate derived from four different roasted malts and a blend of local and imported hops.

Why I selected the Ebenezer Ale:
Sometimes it feels like a battle as to who can use the most spices and different malts when it comes to a winter warmer.  I have really enjoyed the simplicity of Bridgeport’s Ebenezer Ale.  It drinks easy and isn’t overwhelming but at the same time it’s complex enough to satisfy my palate.

The Ebenezer ale is a beautiful cinnamon color.  When you smell it you pick up a nice slight smell of the malts used and it doesn’t over power.  It has a nice creamy small head that laces the glass quite nicely as you take each sip.  The first drink has a nice meld of a spicy and malty flavor that has a wonderfully warm finish.

About Beer Traveler:
We are a TV show currently without a network.  We are in pursuit of a network to call home and hope to be on TV by the fall of 2013.  Currently you can catch teasers for the episodes on YouTube under BeerTravelerTV.  We are always in production, filming many breweries that won’t make current episodes due to time constraints.  These breweries will be given their own webisodes which will hit our channel in the next couple of months.

About Bridgeport Brewing:
The Beer comes first.  We don’t care what’s second.  A funny things happens when you craft beer without compromise: People can taste it, and once they’ve tasted it, they never go back. Because once you’ve achieved Beervana, you’re never the same again.
