PORTLAND, Ore. – October 29, 2015 – BridgePort Brewing Company’s STUMPTOWN Tart is back for the second time in 2015 and she’s loaded with berries that have a local history. This Belgian Style Ale is brewed with marionberries from Marion County, Oregon giving the brew its signature fruit tartness with a touch of sweetness.
“STUMPTOWN Tart is an iconic beer for us at BridgePort Brewing and we all love it,” says Brewmaster Jeff Edgerton. “We came across Willamette Valley marionberries from Stahlbush Farms in Corvallis, Ore. and the selection was too good not to use in our beloved Tart. For this brew, we used a Belgian Wit yeast and Czech Saaz hops giving the beer a slight bitterness and pleasant fruity base that melds perfectly with the berry flavor.”
