You’ve never played a board game like this before! Deschutes Brewery is here from Oregon, so what could we do but resurrect a childhood favorite with a twist: a giant board game you can play for prizes. A Deschutes Brewery brewer will be on hand to chat about the beers you’ll be drinking during the evening like Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Twilight Summer Ale, Pinedrops IPA, Fresh Squeezed IPA, Mirror Mirror, Red Chair NWPA on nitro, and samples of The Abyss.

Brewer Birdwell’s Blog on Malt Rooms & Mega Fans

As a brewer at Deschutes Brewery, I’m often amazed by the array of assignments a workweek can entail.

For example, a random sampling could reveal a day like this:

We descended into the malt room with apprehension and dust masks. How long was this going to take? It was time for a deep clean of our malt room, a three-story nightmare with décor part dungeon/part warehouse. Here, malt is stored and transported to different areas of the brewery which creates endless dust that settles on and saturates everything. No piece of machinery, wall or floor surface is spared from this seemingly permanent residue from brews past. This is basic grunt work, hands and knees floor scrubbing, vacuuming, sweeping, dusting, no degree or experience necessary. Yet it was a team effort with everyone pitching in from Brewmasters to interns. Four hours later we ran out of pizza and had funny coughs. This is part of being a brewer.
