Oregon Pub Crawl 2016 — photo 45 of 112: A pint of Breakside Brewery Pilsner that I enjoyed at Life of Pie Pizza on Williams Avenue in North Portland. According to the brewer:
“When we opened our brewery, we made a committment to making a year-round German-style pilsner. Why? Despite the fact that these beers are time-consuming and technically challenging, we make this beer because we love this beer. We import bagged German Pilsner malt and manually add 3,300 pounds to each batch because we believe that to make a great German pilsner, you need great German pilsner malt. We source all Hallertau Hersbrucker hops, which we prize for their mix of floral and Noble notes. And then we wait. This beer is unfiltered, so we rely on natural lagering techniques (i.e. long times and cold temperatures) to get this beer bright as sunshine.” Measurements: 5.2% ABV • 35 IBUMy notes from that day read: “This is one of the better pilsners I’ve tasted so far — flavorful, slightly bitter, and not watery.” July 2016. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
