Deschutes Inversion IPA

Deschutes Inversion IPA

User Rating:

Deschutes description was too eloquent not to use…”Here in Oregon’s high desert, seasonal changes often bring about a peculiar weather phenomenon–an inversion. The higher up the mountain you go, the sunnier it gets, so even when Bend is covered in clouds, the faithful know where to find clarity.” Just reading that makes me want to […] ... [Read more]

Deschutes Hop Trip Pale Ale

Deschutes Hop Trip Pale Ale

User Rating:

Tom and I recently cracked a bottle of Deschutes Brewery’s Bond Street Series Hop Trip, a fresh-hopped American Pale Ale. It comes as per usual in the familiar 650mL bomber, and has a nice label with an illustration of a truck carrying an overflowing load of hops down a forested Oregon road. I guess those […] ...

Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale

User Rating:

I was fortunate enough to recently have a buddy bring me some Deschutes beers that he picked up in Minnesota. One of those brews was Mirror Pond Pale Ale … one of their classic offerings. While on the West Coast, this Pale is toted as a balanced beer. One thing I especially like about Deschutes […] ... [Read more]

Deschutes Obsidian Stout

User Rating:

John: The thing I hate about this beer is that it’s hard to drink it — without chocolate! That’s the only thing I don’t like about this wonderful, genuine stout from the Northwest. I am a bit of stout snob (or at least I think I am). So much so I don’t like most of […] ... [Read more]

Deschutes Hop Henge Experimental IPA

User Rating:

This beer has more awards than Michael Phelps. After you try it you’ll know why. Especially if you love hops. It poured a beautiful color. Deep, rich amber that is inviting all on its own. A one finger head hangs around longer than normal and leaves a curtain of lace down to the last drop. […] ... [Read more]

Deschutes Black Butte XXI Porter

User Rating:

John:  I kept this baby in the darkness of my wine cellar (on a basement shelf :)) for one year. It about killed me not to drink it in the first two weeks. After that I forgot about it until I noticed a Post It note on it with the date! The time had come […] ... [Read more]

Deschutes Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale

User Rating:

Yet another impressive ale from the brewery that is gaining ground in my book for the number one spot on my favorite brewery list. Wow, so consistent and impressive. Northwest Pale Ale it is. Quite the apt name for this beer. Aroma, body, flavor all scream northwest USA. It is delicious. Deschutes describes this beer […] ... [Read more]

Deschutes Black Butte Porter

User Rating:

This was a $2.99! When I bought it from John at Dennis Brothers I looked at the receipt and told him there must be a mistake. No mistake. A 22 oz great porter for under $3. I lean toward the stout side of beers but liked this anyway. It is a “stout light”. It pours […] ... [Read more]

Deschutes Jubelale

User Rating:

Perhaps my favorite part about the experience of drinking beer is that there is a nearly inexhaustible variety to choose from. There is a beer for every mood, for every gathering, and yes, for every season. Most people are giddy with anticipation for the holiday/winter season because of things like gifts, time with family, childhood […] ... [Read more]
