We are bringing our Base Camp campaign back to Seattle for an amazing week of specialty beer tastings, beer and food pairings, and appearances by Woody, the giant beer barrel on wheels. Deschutes Brewery ambassadors and fanatics will be on hand to provide some in-the-trenches insight into our courageously crafted brews at the following events:
We had a slow start to the summer in Bend this year, but I believe I’ve figured out a way to extend it for a couple more months (those of you who live in Phoenix may not want to hear this). It’s a calendar thing. In our little microclimate of Bend we have summer during the 7th and 8th months of the year (July and August). Here we define “summer” as a period of time where the chances of your plants freezing are generally below 50%. Summer’s a funny word isn’t it? Say it a few times out loud: summer, summer, summer.
Deschutes Brewery’s newest enterprise, The Stoic, a Belgian-style Quadruple, has finally arrived! Its five year odyssey from experimental beer to coveted Reserve Series eminence is complete. The finest Belgian brewing philosophies have inspired this contribution to the American Quadruple scene, mingling the four virtues of compelling ingredients, nuanced flavor, sound body, and a composed harmony. The Stoic requires discovery of the truth of the matter.
We are really getting excited for our 2nd annual Street Fare coming up next Thursday. Have you seen the amazing list of Portland food carts and indie bands that we were able to recruit? And all for a good cause! Proceeds benefit Morrison Child and Family Services and the entry fee is only $10, which includes your 1st food & beer taster or a full 16oz beer!
