We were happy to hear over the 4th of July weekend that we were named Grand National Champion at the United States Open Beer Championships by winning three gold and five silver medals. We are honored to win this award for the second time in three years and congratulate all of our fellow brewers who also brought home the hardware.
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.
Deschutes Brewery’s Third Annual Chocolate Beer Dinner was an event I won’t soon be forgetting. The five course meal, created by Chefs Katrina Spatrisano, Matt Neltner and Jeff Latino, was thoughtfully prepared and presented to the diner like an edible masterpiece. Equal thanks must go to Brewers Paul Arney and Jimmy Seifrit, as the beer pairing with each course was innovative, balanced, and unlike anything I had ever tasted.
