Altbitter
Altbitter is a unique blend of Imperial Bitter and Imperial Altbier, a collaboration brewed with Widmer for their 30th anniversary. These combined with 33% of a unique non-barrel aged beer that highlights the distinctive elements of both bitter and alt. The result is a bold homage to the breweries' respective German and English influences, done in a true Oregon way.

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.

Nitro Smoking on the Dock
Start with a rich, chocolaty stout, then add 10 dozen Willapa Bay oysters that were cold smoked in-house and you get Smoking on the Dock. Big chocolate, with a subtle smoke, and a hint of sea spray brine. (Oysters can cause an allergic reaction).

Red Chair NWPA

The citrus punch of a big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Several select European and domestic malts round out the edges for a complex, copper-colored brew. Like its namesake ski lift, it’s an insider’s ride to fresh thrills.

Release date: December 8th, 2014

Malt: Pale, Crystal, Munich, Carapils, Pilsner, Carastan
Hops: Cascade, Centennial

Watch brewer Matt Henneous talk about Red Chair NWPA from the fabled Mt. Bachelor lift that spawned it's name.

The Dissident

The Dissident is an Oud Bruin, a distinctive Flanders-style sour brown ale, with a heavenly aroma and flavor. Our first wild yeast beer, we use Brettanomyces and local cherries to give The Dissident its characteristic sour taste. Our stiffest brewing challenge, it must be fermented in isolation from our other beers for a full 18 months, partly in pinot and cabernet barrels. The words coddled and “worth it” come to mind.

Released in 2008, 2010, 2012 & 2014

Released on December 12, 2014 at our pubs and tasting room.

Winter Harvest Farmhouse Ale
This amber colored farmhouse ale is perfect for the winter months. Generous use of Abbey malt gives the beer a slight tart character and a gentle maltiness. A small addition of cardamom seeds gives just enough spiciness to complement the yeast character and add complexity to the aroma.
