Baerlic Brewing will kick off the month of October with a bang as it is set to release four new canned beers. Beginning at 4:00pm on Tuesday, October 1st, Baerlic will release Bretta de Milo Saison, Expat Export German Export-Style Lager, Night Howler Imperial Stout, and Cut the Fluff West Coast IPA in cans.
All four new can releases will only take place at Baerlic Brewing’s Southeast Portland brewery and taproom.
Here’s a preview of the four new canned beer releases with descriptions provided by Baerlic Brewing…
Bretta de Milo Saison
Portland’s first Brett can-condition’d Beer!
Yeah, you read that right, we took our award winning Milo Oak Fermented Saison and conditioned it in the can with brettanomyces bruxellensis yeast. Description:
Fermented wholly in French oak with our house Saccharomyces saison yeast blend, Bretta De Milo is then re-fermented in the can with brett yeast to create a spritzy carbonation and an electric mouthfeel. The result is a beer with a beautifully complex yeast character that will evolve over time. 6.2% ABV.
Silver medal winner at the 2019 Best of Craft Beer Awards.
THIS IS A VERY LIMITED RUN, so get it before its gone.
Expat Export German Export-Style Lager
As part of our revolving lager can releases, we are stoked to get this beer in a can. Expat toes the line between a German Helles and a Pilsner and has a beautifully bready malt character with a soft bitterness and just enough hop presence to keep the balance in check. Description:
Expat is a Dortmunder Export-Style Lager that lies somewhere in between a German Pils and a Helles. The term “Export” is a beer strength category under German beer tax law and denotes a slightly higher ABV. 6.2% ABV.

Night Howler Imperial Stout
Back by popular demand, our beast of an Imperial stout will surely keep you warm as we descend into the darkness of fall and winter. Description:
Beastly deep notes of bitter chocolate, charred bread and an epic depth of rich coffee. In the dead of night, darkness comes alive. The night howler wails death’s lullaby…10% ABV.
Cut the Fluff West Coast IPA
The Beer formerly known as Eldo & Friends Hazy IPA, NOW in West Coast IPA form:
We got such good feedback from you all when we released our Eldo & Friends Hazy IPA last year, we thought we’d cut the fluff this time around and brew the exact same beer but in a West Coast IPA style. That means it still packs the same tropical and juicy punch of El Dorado, Mosaic and Columbus hops but with a more pronounced bitterness, a cleaner yeast character and a firmer water profile that accentuates all the new world hop character. Description:
Cut the Fluff West Coast IPA – 6.6% ABV
Malts: Weyermann Pilsner, Wheat, Malted and Rolled Oats
Hops: El Dorado, Mosaic and Columbus
Yeast: Imperial Flagship
In addition to these four new canned beer releases, Baerlic Brewing will also see the return of both Go Team Go Hazy IPA and Dark Thoughts Black IPA in cans on Tuesday at the brewery.
