A Match Made in Malt, Hops and Cookie Dough!

Girl

Each and every year, Girl Scouts come to the brewery to get us signed up to help out their troops, and to receive some delicious bite-size morsels we all know as...Girl Scout Cookies! Then the idea came to mind: what if we paired these said cookies with our delicious beers? This could be a match made in malt, hops and cookie dough.

Beer, Wings and Football

Wings

Beer, chicken wings, and football pair perfectly together, and with the "The Big Game" coming up this weekend, we thought it would be fun to do a Deschutes beer and wing pairing that you could mimic at home.

Everyone has their favorite wings and their favorite wing spot and these spots almost always have beer! When we asked Central Oregon fans on Facebook to list their wing favorites, the recommendations were far and wide from fried to baked and from regular Buffalo Hotwings, to Honey Cajun BBQ.

What To Do With All Of Those Cookies...

So the family has come and gone this Holiday Season and all that remains of their visit is COOKIES! Lots of cookies! There are oatmeal raisin, sugar, peanut butter, chocolate chip, chocolate chunk chocolate, and snickerdoodles galore. Rather then go on a binge and eat all of them in one sitting, we've got a recommendation for you. How about a Deschutes Beer & Cookie Pairing with your friends? Get out your cookie sheets, sample glasses and head on down to your mix and match 6-pack store for your favorite Deschutes beers. We had a ton of fun eating and sipping and sipping and eating and we hope you will too! Here is our version of a "Cookie Sheet!" Cheers & Hoppy Holidays!

Taking "The Kids" Sightseeing in Nebraska!

Taking

Last month we headed to Nebraska for a week of launch events to introduce Deschutes Brewery beer to the craft beer fans of the Midwest! Since we had never been to "...The Good Life" State, we decided to take "The Kids" along for the ride....and some sightseeing.

Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Black Butte Porter pair very well with sports so our first stop was the TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha. This baseball stadium is the home field of the College World Series and has been since 2011. Due to an agreement with the NCAA, the games will remain there each year until at least 2035. With seating for 24,000, it's a great place to watch the series in the summer, the Creighton University Bluejays in the Spring and the Omaha Nighthawks (United Football League) in the Fall. After hearing "hey, batta, batta, batta, batta," about 100 times from "The Kids," we decided to head on to our next adventure.

Taking "The Kids" Sightseeing in Washington D.C.

Taking

Once again we’ve set out with “The Kids” to do some sightseeing in a place they’ve never been: Washington D.C.

Not only is this city home to the President of the United States and some great craft beer, but the history here is rich with monuments, museums and statues galore.
