Bridgeport Brewing of Portland, Oregon is one of the early micro-brewing pioneers. This year Bridgeport celebrates 30 years of brewing. Ebenezer Ale is a Winter Warmer.
Ebenezer pours the color of dull penny with a light tan head of fine foam. The aroma is light caramel malts, slight citrus and floral presence. It’s medium-bodied, with caramel malts at first and some nuttiness. There’s some citrus, earthiness, and vegetal notes from the hops. It’s very drinkable, with no spices added. There’s strong, smooth carbonation and 6.4% ABV in this limited release beer.
The label features a package-toting, smiling Ebenezer Scrooge, of A Christmas Carol fame. This picture is obviously after his visitation with the 3 ghosts, who were actually none other than yours truly with a little make up. May your own life transformation be as gracious as Ebenezer’s.
