With Spring Comes the Latest Ground Breaker Release

  • Coffee Pale Ale Release
  • 2030 SE 7th Ave Portland, OR 97214
  • March 31st, 4:00 PM

Ground Breaker Brewing, the first 100% dedicated gluten-free brewery in the United States, is set to deliver up their first Experiment Ale Series installment of 2017. Coffee Pale Ale is slated for release on March 31.  

While the Experiment Ale Series from Ground Breaker sees unique releases every year, Coffee Pale Ale is a spring mainstay in the line-up. The combination of Equal Exchange’s Medium Peruvian roast coffee with a specially formulated pale ale was selected by the guests in the Ground Breaker Gastropub. “Having our own pub gave us the ability to try several coffee/beer combinations and get an immediate response from our customers,” said Ground Breaker’s head of R&D, James Neumeister. He continued, “When it comes to coffee, people think dark beer would be the obvious winner but no other coffee beer we made matched the positive response we received using this pale ale and coffee combination.”

Ground Breaker’s Coffee Pale Ale release comes at the tail end of a successful Portland Dining Month for the Gastropub. Customers that come in for the release on Friday the 31st will be able to enjoy the last night of Portland Dining Month with Ground Breaker’s three-course meal of Clams Casino, Duck Pate Ravioli, and a Tiramisu Cupcake made by Kyra's Bake Shop. 

Three small-batch Taproom Exclusives will be accompanying the Coffee Pale Ale on draught. Vanilla Cream features additions of lactose, a generous amount of vanilla, and extra coffee. Mexican Chocolate includes chillis, cinnamon, cocoa nibs and vanilla . Finally, Valencia Coffee Pale Ale is a variant with lactose, oranges, cocoa nibs, vanilla and extra coffee.
