About once a week, we speak with a beer fan who is concerned about the "floaties," flakes, or sediment they've found in their craft beer. "Is it bad?" "Will this make me sick?" and "this looks gross" are a few of the comments we read or hear.
In recent news, we've heard that craft beer fans want a beer to fuss over. Not only do you want a beer that is delicious, but you are interested in high quality ingredients, a wonderful aroma, and a beer with a beautiful look and color. As you pour your beer into the perfect glass, you see white flakes that you weren't expecting and some not so positive thoughts come to mind unless you've done some previous research about the subject.
Deschutes is bringing out some of our big guns to this fest!
Savor the classics of Black Butte Porter and Mirror Pond. Try the zesty spices of Chainbreaker White IPA and Zarabanda. And give your tastes buds a treat with the hops Red Chair NWPA and Hop Henge.
We have Pat joining you there from Deschutes to help you out with all those questions you may have and perhaps even some takeaways for you. See you there! Cheers!
