Now Pouring

Birdshot ISA
Lighter and lower in alcohol than it's IPA cousin, this session ale packs a citrusy, berry hop punch. Four hops in the brewhouse and two more as dry hops with just enough malt body to balance the whole thing out.
IBUs 70 | Alcohol by Vol. 4.3%
Chasin' Freshies

Like fresh powder, it’s a seize-the-moment thing. This year we've chased down the famed Mosaic hop from the amazing John I Haas growers. At harvest, we rush the hops from the vine to our kettles to ensure we capture the purest, juiciest essence of the hop flower in every beer. Enjoy the bright, bold aroma and flavor that comes but once a year.

Malt: Pilsner Malt, Flaked Oats
Hops: Bravo, Fresh Mosaic

Double Impact
Hops and Belgian yeast join forces to deliver a roundhouse kick of aromatics and Flavor. Powerful citrus notes compliment complex fruity yeast esters, with an aggressive bitterness that will Van Dammage your palate. Jean Claude would be proud.

Fresh Hop Saison
This lovely, easy drinking saison showcases the marriage of yeast with fresh Meridian hops from Goschie Farms! The meridian hops add a nice lemon aroma to meld with the classic saison yeast spiciness.

Now available year-round in six-packs and draft!

IBUs 30 | Alcohol by Vol. 5.5%
Hop Trip

Each year around Labor Day, Deschutes brewers high-tail it over the pass to Doug Weather’s hop fields near Salem for the harvest. After bagging these aromatic jewels, we hustle back and toss them into the brew kettles within four hours of picking. Our reward: a pale ale with a uniquely bright citrus punch and fall spice. It’s something only Deschutes would take past the idle-talk stage. Brewed with Salmon Safe Hops

Malt: NW Pale, Extra Special, Cara-Munich, Carapils
Hops: Nugget, Centennial, Fresh Crystal
IBUs 38 | Alcohol by Vol. 5.9%

Warm spiciness and tradition grace this bold winter ale. Intriguing, layered flavors unfold to reveal chicory, dried fruit and toffee notes with a hoppy kick to finish. The deep garnet color pairs perfectly with holiday celebrations.

Malt: Pale, Crystal, Extra Special, Carapils, Roasted Barley
Hops: Nugget, Cascade, Willamette, Styrian, Tettnang, East Kent Goldings

This year's label by Lisa and Lori Lubbesmeyer features original fiber artwork showing two people sledding in a playful winter landscape. The twins’ artwork was created through their unique method of layering and overstitching with fabrics. During their artistic process, they exchange the pieces, allowing the imagery to emerge spontaneously. The fracturing of shape and saturation of color occur layer by layer – allowing the texture of the fiber to build the imagery as they’ve responded to each other’s work. The final piece was meant to capture the essence of the lifestyle we all enjoy here in Central Oregon.

And if you need to brush up on your Jubelale trivia, here's a document (pdf) that covers the complete history of this Festive Winter Ale.

Paddington Brown Ale
This malt forward drinker will help keep the winter blues away. Caramel and Victory malts deliver notes of dried fruit and graham cracker, while a touch of Crystal Rye malt gives a hint of spice. Hop heads steer clear ... this beer was made for malt lovers.
IBUs 25 | Alcohol by Vol. 4.3%
The Abyss

A deep, dark Imperial Stout, The Abyss has almost immeasurable depth and complexity. Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors make it something not just to quaff, but contemplate.

As for the great "drink it now or let it age" debate, we stand clearly on the fence. Distinct and delicious on release, the flavors meld and fuse into an entirely different pleasure after a year or more in the cellar.

Malt: Pale, Black, Chocolate, Black Barley, Roasted Barley, Wheat
Hops: Millennium, Nugget, Styrian, German Northern Brewer
Other: Blackstrap Molasses, Brewer’s Licorice, Vanilla Beans, Cherry Bark
Barrel-Aging: (28%) 6 Months in Bourbon, Oregon Oak, Pinot Noir
