Heathen advances to the Elite 8 in Battle of the Brews

Clark County’s Heathen Brewing has made it to the Elite 8 in the 2013 Battle of the Brews for the Oregon Brewers festival.

Elite 8

Heathen’s “Transgression IPA” now faces Seven Brides Brewing of Silverton, Ore.’s “Frankennlou’s IPA.”

Heathen Owner Sunny Parsons said:

“This match up is going to be a tough one with Seven Brides Brewing so vote now! There are four days to vote so spread the word. Can you believe the next level is the Final Four and Heathen could be there?! Thanks to everyone that has got us this far. Now lets finish strong.”

The winner of the competition, which began with 64 breweries, gets a trophy and bragging rights.

Heathen’s description of “Transgression IPA” is a “light bodied IPA has a simple grain bill of Northwest Pale, Crystal and Caravienne malt that brings a smooth silky texture. The infamous Simcoe, Citra (hops) bring a huge aroma and light citrus flavor, while the Warrior brings just enough back bitter to make an IPA.”
