Old Chicago Explorer Series – Ballast Point

Ballast Point Brewing Company and Old Chicago have partnered up with each other for Old Chicago Explorer Series. This new series began last night and will continue for a limited time. On tap will be five Ballast Point beers, two of which are exclusive to Old Chicago.

The Explorer Series will bring both Manta Ray Double IPA and Bonito Blonde Ale exclusively to Old Chicago locations across the country, including its three Portland area locations. These two exclusive beers will be pouring alongside three of the San Diego brewery’s more popular offerings.

Here are details on the Ballast Point tap list at Old Chicago.

Double IPA | 8.5% ABV | 70 IBU
An Old Chicago exclusive, Manta Ray has aromas of fresh citrusy tangerine, melon and light pine balanced by a bold malt backbone. A surprisingly smooth finisher for a beer with a big ABV bite.

Blonde Ale | 4.5% ABV | 20 IBU
An Old Chicago exclusive, Bonito is inspired by a California sunny day. Golden color and soft malt character with a light mouthfeel, subtle hop bite, and dry finish.

American IPA | 7.0% ABV | 70 IBU
This multi-year gold medal winning brew is hopped at three separate stages.  Hints of apricot, peach, mango and lemon. An extremely drinkable and fantastic American IPA.

American IPA | 7.0% ABV | 70 IBU
A fruited take on traditional Sculpin. Grapefruit is added to perfectly compliment the citrusy hop character, while adding some unique contrasts to the peach and apricot flavors. Surprisingly drinkable with a refreshing finish.

Imperial Porter | 10.0% ABV | 60 IBU
A bold, smooth brew with just the right amount of sweetness. Infused with whole vanilla beans and San Diego’s own Caffe Calabria coffee beans creating subtle roasted notes and sweet caramel undertones.
