The long, warm evenings in Central Oregon once again herald the return of Twilight Ale, Deschutes Brewery's award winning summer seasonal. This hot weather quencher is available Memorial Day weekend through September in 6-packs, 12-packs, and on draft. Now your idea of summer fun might be matching the hatch, honing your short game, or flying down single-track on the edge of sanity. We believe Twilight Ale will make hanging out next to the Weber and reflecting on these pursuits that much more enjoyable.The use of Cara-Pils and Carastan malts lends Twilight Ale a subtle, wafer like body. This is at once offset and complemented by citrus and floral aromas. These are brought about with late additions of whole flower Cascade, Amarillo, and Tettnang hops. The overall result is a crisp, effervescent, highly drinkable ale that will pair beautifully with picnic classics like barbecued ribs, and salads with lemon and dill.
Twilight Ale was named for that magical time of day when shadows are long, laughter comes easily, and you really just want the moment to last forever. One more cast, one more putt, one more leg of the trail, just one more Twilight Ale. So keep on chasing down those low slung rays of summer light, and we'll keep doing things the Deschutes way, deal?
