“Deschutes Brewery has used whole leaf hops (and have invested heavily behind them) from day one because we believe they yield a better beer with better flavor. It is interesting to note that, when we believe we can get better flavor we have, and do, use some pellets and even extract.
Yes, it's true. Deschutes Brewery will start selling beer in Minnesota starting the week of March 29th. Partnering with J.J. Taylor Distributing Company of Minnesota, the largest beer distributor in the state, Deschutes Brewery will be focusing on the greater Twin Cities region for its initial launch.
Flowing lazily through Bend thanks to a small dam, the otherwise wild and turbulent Deschutes River pools up to form the serene Mirror Pond. Sitting at the heart of downtown Bend, this beautifully reflective pond provides locals and visitors with the perfect summer stroll amid the massive Ponderosas along the bank. Kayaks and river floaters share the pond with the swans and ducks, and footpaths wind along the shoreline. Warm summer nights bring thousands along the shore to enjoy concerts every week.
