For the 8th release of The Abyss, we interviewed Deschutes Brewery founder, Gary Fish, and assistant brewmaster, Ryan Schmiege, and had them talk about the history, ingredients and motivation surrounding our beloved imperial stout. We hope you learn something new and that it helps you enjoy The Abyss even more whether this is your first year trying it or if you are an old pro and have conducted your fair share of vertical tastings.
