Storage Wars: How To Age Your Reserve Series Beer


Are you excited or what? You just found that Reserve Series beer you've been looking for and after purchasing this high ABV (alcohol by volume) 22 ounce bottle, you get home, look at the label, and notice that it says: "Best After" January 2016. You think to yourself: "WHAT?!?, I have to wait a year before I am able to drink this beer?" Then the internal conversation begins inside your own head, "Should I drink this now, or add it to my cellar?"

Spit or Swallow: Differences Between Tasting Beer & Wine


If you're reading this, it is either due to the suggestive title, or maybe you just really want to know the differences between tasting beer and still wine (wine without bubbles). As the saying goes, "it takes a lot of beer to make great wine." This is because after tasting high abv (alcohol by volume) wine all day, winemakers sometimes just want to drink a beer. The same may be said for brewers too. After making beer after beer, and tasting a sample from every batch, it may be nice to sit at the home at the end of the day and slowly sip on a glass of wine. Whether you prefer beer, wine or both, you may often wonder to yourself... "I know it's ok to swirl, sip and spit wine to taste it, but is that how to taste beer too?" Well, we did a bit of "research" and came up with some answers for you!

Beer, Wings and Football


Beer, chicken wings, and football pair perfectly together, and with the "The Big Game" coming up this weekend, we thought it would be fun to do a Deschutes beer and wing pairing that you could mimic at home.

Everyone has their favorite wings and their favorite wing spot and these spots almost always have beer! When we asked Central Oregon fans on Facebook to list their wing favorites, the recommendations were far and wide from fried to baked and from regular Buffalo Hotwings, to Honey Cajun BBQ.
