(Portland, OR) – When the autumn clouds in the Pacific Northwest darken the skies in earnest, Ground Breaker Brewing darkens the beer. The first 100% dedicated gluten-free brewery in the United States is set to release Cascadian Dark Ale. This is the brewery’s seventh release of the year in their Experiment Ale Series.
“IPA is an extremely popular style of beer,” remarked James Neumeister, Head of R&D at Ground Breaker Brewing. “CDA combines the bittering and aromatic qualities prominent in an IPA with the body, texture, and malt flavor of a darker ale. It’s an IPA-like beer especially suited to fall and winter.”
Ground Breaker’s Cascadian Dark Ale clocks in at 48 IBU and 6% alcohol by volume. The beer features late additions and dry hopping with Centennial and Cascade hops.
Ground Breaker Brewing’s Cascadian Dark Ale will be released on draught and in 22 ounce bottles on November 29th in the Ground Breaker Brewing Gastropub. The gastropub will also have two taproom exclusive versions of their Cascadian Dark Ale available. A dry hopped version of the Cascadian Dark Ale will feature Neomexicanus hops, a variety native to the United States, first discovered in New Mexico. A cold-brewed coffee version of the CDA will be available. Cascadian Dark Ale will be available at locations in Ground Breaker territory beginning in the first week of December.
