A foeder (pronounced FOOD-er) is really a large wooden vat used to age wine, but recently, many breweries like New Belgium Brewing, Epic Brewing Company, Crooked Stave and more have got a hold of them to age their sour beers and large amounts of it.
Here at Deschutes, our off-site barrel warehouse has been growing, and with over 3,000 barrels, it seemed natural to add some foeders into the mix. We've been collecting a few here and there but most recently, we had the opportunity to obtain this little 25 bbl french oak foeder made by Sequin Morreau and we're the only brewery in the WORLD to have this particular one.
We're super excited to announce that we're setting up shop in your town for one day! That's right, we're bringing our outdoor pub of epic proportions to each of the cities below for an all out block party. Crafted from reclaimed wood and steel, our Street Pub will be a one-stop-shop to try several of our beers – from the coveted Reserve Series rarities (think The Abyss) all the way to year-round favorites like Black Butte Porter and Mirror Pond Pale Ale. Pair those beers up with culinary creations from our Executive Chef, Jeff Usinowicz, and live local music – and you have a street party that’s truly “crafted for community.”
Kick off the party with a Golden Birthday PARADE beginning at our brewing facility at 901 SW Simpson Dr. Arrive at 4pm to grab beer samples in your best gold & Deschutes gear. The parade leaves at 4:30pm walking to the Bend Pub at 1044 NW Bond St. and will be headed up by groovin' fun tunes from the "B-Side Brass Band"! Be one of the first 100 people at the parade start for Golden Birthday Giveaways & prizes will be awarded for the best golden costumes!
