Like every other brewery Portland, Oregon's Breakside Brewery is doing things a bit differently for now. Co-founder, co-owner, and brewmaster Ben Edmunds tells us they are operating on to-go and delivery options. When asked if he's learned anything through this that might impact business going forward he quickly notes that it's too soon to tell, they're just trying to make it through the pandemic.
Breakside is know mainly for their stable of award-winning IPAs but Edmunds shares with us some of his more adventurous brews with ingredients like mushrooms, seaweed, and bonito flakes. We also chat about all the amazing hops out there and what varieties are exciting him right now, and discuss a bit about hop terroir.
Amid all the madness Edmunds will brew 26 collaboration beers to celebrate their 10th Anniversary this year. He promises there will be a party at some point, but in the meantime they'll have plenty of beers to enjoy.
