PORTLAND, Ore. (June 17, 2021) – Zupan’s Markets has partnered with Portland’s own Little Beast Brewing to develop the 15th beer in its Farm-to-Market lineup. This American Pale Ale with berry and citrus tones is perfect for summertime sipping. Featuring green herbs and grapefruit hop flavors, with mid-level bitterness and medium body.
“Zupan’s Markets is excited to welcome a new Portland brewery into the Farm to Market series project, which started six years ago in 2015,” said Zupan’s Markets President and CEO Mike Zupan. “Known for crafting beers that are diverse in flavor and unique in character, this American Pale Ale by Little Beast is no different and makes a perfect pairing for summertime eating and entertaining.”
The Farm-to-Market Little Beast Brewing American Pale Ale collaboration is exclusively available at all three Zupan’s Markets locations for $4.99 for a single 16 oz. beer and $16.99 for a four-pack.
“As Portland’s premiere gourmet grocer, Little Beast was honored to be asked to produce a Farm to Market beer with Zupan’s Markets. Even though there are so many beer styles to choose from, it was an easy choice to go with a classic American Pale Ale,” said Little Beast founder and brewmaster Charles Porter. “This beer style has been the hallmark of the American craft beer revolution and remains an approachable beer that is perfect for summertime. Cheers to Zupan’s for bringing the Farm to the Market!”
