Medals for five different beers and receiving "Best of Show" trophies for Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Obsidian Stout at the International Brewing Awards (which has been dubbed ‘the Oscars of the brewing industry’) is a great honor for all of us here at Deschutes Brewery. This year’s competition contained 953 beers from 199 different breweries in fifty different countries! Forty distinguished brewers from 17 different countries judging the beers makes this competition stand out from others.
For this year’s competition we submitted only our core year-round beers and seasonal at the time of judging (Red Chair NWPA). To receive the international accolades for this lineup is a great testimony to what we do at Deschutes Brewery. We constantly push the envelope with specialty brewing and R&D to deliver our fans the next great beer. Everyday we produce beer of the utmost quality and flavor for our customers to enjoy any day, any where.
