For its latest release Wayfinder Beer steps back in the time machine for Saturday’s debut of Polybius Pale Ale. Beginning at 11:30am on November 11th, Wayfinder will debut this new beer that is named after a fictitious video game from 1981.
Brewmaster Kevin Davey is excited to release his latest creation, Polybius Pale Ale. This is an American-style pale ale featuring golden pale malts alongside Simcoe and Centennial hops in harmonious balance. Look for aromas of grapefruit and pine with clean and balanced fruit in this golden-hued ray of sunshine. Polybius sits at 5.3% ABV and 37 IBUs.
To celebrate Polybius Pale Ale’s release Wayfinder will take a dollar off all Polybius crowlers all day long on Saturday!
Polybius is a fictitious 1981 arcade game that originated from an urban legend created in 2000. The original game’s actual existence has never been authoritatively proven, but it has served as inspiration for several free and commercial games by the same name. – Wikipedia
So is this beer real or just urban legend? There’s only one way to find out.
Also on the horizon is the Holiday Ale Festival and Wayfinder Beer will make its debut at this much beloved festival that takes place from November 29 through December 3 at Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square. Here Wayfinder will be pouring Rotovator Doppelbock, a butt-kicking big lager brewed exclusively for the annual festival.
