Topic “Deschutes Brewery”
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.
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!
A Convergence of Groundbreaking Genius
Rarely do two rivers converge in nature without some degree of turbulence. Fortunately, for everyone with taste buds, two esteemed brewmasters have pioneered a never-before-seen style with practiced composure and sure vision. Conflux No.
Deschutes Brewery descends on Boise for its Base Camp Week of specialty beer tastings, food & beer pairings, parties and, of course, appearances by Woody, the giant beer barrel on wheels. A Deschutes ambassador will be on hand to provide some in-the-trenches insight into our courageously crafted brews.
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.
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.
