Today BridgePort Brewing in conjunction with Green Bottling is filling 22-ounce bottles with a new Belgian brew. In an email just received from Kendall at R-West, BridgePort’s marketing team, the beer is an Abbey-style brew. We’re still not sure what kind of Abbey Brew it is, but we are definitely psyched to get our paws on this one. The beer is named Fallen Friar and will be officially released on February 19, 2009. BridgePort is planning a release party for the brew and informed us that details will follow. The beer is the latest in the brewery’s Big Beer series that has formerly featured a bourbon barrel aged Old Knucklehead barleywine, a Belgian marionberry brew called Stumptown Tart, and the Raven Mad Imperial Porter. Above is a picture taken by Green Bottling‘s Mike Weksler, who informed us that 650 cases of Fallen Friar will be bottled.
