As you may have heard, our brewmaster for the past eight years, Larry Sidor, will be leaving us at the end of the year to pursue a lifelong dream of owning his own business. Here’s a question and answer session we recently had with Larry to give a little insight into his time at Deschutes and his brewing experience.
Raft the Rogue River with NW Rafting Co. & Deschutes Brewery Brewer & Barrelmaster, Jake Harper!!!
Just as barrelmaster, Jake, steps out of the box everyday when he uses French Oak, Rye Whiskey, & Bourban Barrels in the brewing process, you too should try something bold this summer. Step out of the comfort of everyday life and join us on a rafting trip of a lifelime. You won't be disappointed.
Deschutes Brewery beer in South Dakota? You bet!
And all I can say to that is, “About time!” In my opinion, South Dakota should have been the first state we expanded to outside of Oregon due to the remarkable resemblances between the two states.
1. Both states are on the 45th parallel which gives them similar climates — except that it’s way colder in South Dakota.
Deschutes Brewery is excited to partner with Mudslinger Events to bring you the High Cascades 24, Bend’s first ever 24 hour race. Registration is now open so recruit your team or sign up solo, just don’t delay as spots will fill up fast.
Healthy rivers are very important to us at Deschutes, especially since it’s one of the main sources we tap into to make great beer. If we don’t have clean rivers, our beer and the craft beer industry in Oregon wouldn’t be where it is today.
