Taking "The Kids" Sightseeing in Kansas City!


It was about that time to hit the road once more and since we've spent ample time on the west coast lately, we decided to hit up the midwest for some tasty BBQ and fabulous hospitality in the "Paris of the Plains" also known as Kansas City!

After a week of hanging out with craft beer fans at pubs, restaurants, bars, liquor stores, and bottle shops, "The Kids," Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Black Butte Porter, decided to play the tourist card and hit up some local landmarks around town.

Taking "The Kids" Sightseeing in Kentucky!


Since the Kentucky Derby was yesterday, it just seemed fitting to post our latest blog highlighting our recent trip out to Kentucky! "The Kids," Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Black Butte Porter, had never been to this part of the country before, so when Deschutes Brewery announced that they'd be expanding into the "Bluegrass State", we were all on board.

Taking "The Kids" Sightseeing in Nebraska!


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 Chicago


As part of the Marketing Department, I was asked to accompany other Deschutes Brewery crew members to Chicago for a huge beer launch. This sounded like an exciting adventure so I thought I’d take “the kids” along for some sightseeing since neither Mirror Pond Pale Ale nor Black Butte Porter had been to the windy city before.
