Deschutes Brewery WinterFest Day

Posted on: January 24th 2011

As the official beer sponsor for OnPoint Bend WinterFest, Deschutes Brewery has created a special brew just to celebrate this annual festival. The beer is    whimsically entitled “Giraffe on Ice Skates” and will only be available at the two Deschutes Brew Pubs (Bend and Portland) on January 29th. Deschutes is so excited about WinterFest they’ve created a day to honor it, and a beer to enjoy for the occasion!

About “Giraffe on Ice Skates”: Named for some experimental hops which were marooned in ourdeschutes-winterfest Deschutes Brewery WinterFest Day Brewery cooler, along with high strength and color, this Belgian style beer brewed with hibiscus may just keep you stranded here longer than you predicted! (IBU’s 16 Alcohol 13.7%).

With any purchase of a “Giraffe on Ice Skates” on January 29th, Deschutes will also donate $1 to Saving Grace, the official charitable beneficiary of Bend WinterFest.  At the Bend pub, anyone who orders a pint of Giraffe on Ice Skates will be entered to win a contest for some cool Deschutes swag.
