June 23, 2016 – (Bend, Oregon) – 10 Barrel is at it again with its most creative and competitive brews yet! Pitting Bend, Boise and Portland’s head brewers against one another for the title of ‘Best 10 Barrel Brewer,’ 10 Barrel is launching its first ever Battle of the Beers brewers box collection as a special release variety pack shipping to stores this week and available through the summer months.

Featuring creative and fun brewpub series beers – Dat Sesh Doh, a session IPA by Portland’s Whitney Burnside; Cerveza Negra, a dark lager by Bend’s Tonya Cornett; and Category 57, a double IPA by Boise’s Shawn Kelso – this 12-pack variety box is sure to have you rallying behind your favorite brew! Once you’ve tried all three post #DrinkPortlandBeer, #DrinkBoiseBeer or #DrinkBendBeer on your social media channels to cast your vote.
At the end of August, whichever brewer has the most votes – and therefore endless bragging rights – will be throwing a party for their city at their home pub in early September that will feature live music, beer, food, games, and much more.
Portland, OR – Whitney Burnside’s Dat Sesh Doh comes in at 5.2% ABV, saying that “summertime in Portland calls for a beer you can drink more than one of, through hot afternoons and into the cool summer nights. This session IPA packs all the juicy flavor, aroma, and snappy bitterness of it’s bigger brothers, but weighs in at 5.2% ABV. No added fruit required, it pairs perfectly with lounging in the sun, chilling near the river, and having good times with your friends. Let’s put our new rooftop patio to use this summer and rock the Battle of the Beers party in Portland!”
Bend, OR – Tonya Cornett’s Cerveza Negra comes in at 4.5% ABV, and Tonya says, “Cerveza Negra stands out in the Battle of the Beers because it’s not another cloying IPA and is truly the most difficult to make. A touch malty, finishing crisp, refreshing and super tasty. This would be the first beer picked out of the box by a brewer!”
Boise, ID – Shawn Kelso’s Category 57 comes in at 10.3% ABV and describes his brew by saying, “What battle? With an ABV bigger than both the other two beers in this box combined, I think it’s clear which beer came to party. I brewed this hop forward Double IPA using Galaxy and Calypso hops to give it a bright fruity flavor with notes of pear and apple. This hop laden masterpiece is definitely the beer you and your friends will be fighting over. Hope you enjoy drinking it as much as I enjoyed brewing it!”
The Battle of the Beers box and brewpub series beers will be available through September in retail in 12-pack variety boxes throughout Oregon, California, Colorado, Idaho and Washington and on tap at our Bend, Portland and Boise pubs.
