What if you went to work thinking, "What rule can we rule out today? What sacred cow can we tip on its big, fat flank? What if the boss strode the halls urging: 'put the kettle to the metal, people.'"
Welcome to the funhouse called Deschutes. Since 1988, we’ve been brewing a lineup of high-risk, high-reward beers from Bend in Oregon’s high desert. First for our own pub, then for a growing audience of beer fanatics.
With state-of-the-art tools, we produce craft brew icons like Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Black Butte Porter. Then up the ante with bold, small batch experimentals like The Abyss, Hop Trip and The Dissident. All the while urging on our extended family of home and craft brewers everywhere.
Please join us out here on the brewing limb. If you’re not slightly nervous, we’ve failed you.
Warm, smooth, sweet dried fruit and vanilla complement a commanding Brandy character. This remarkably limited version was 100% barrel-aged for 12 months in Brandy casks.
Style: Imperial Stout
There are two sides to every sip of this newly released India Style Red Ale perfectly named, Swivelhead Red. At first, you’ll get the herbal hop aroma from European and Australian hop varieties, added in American amounts…but the flip side is a smooth caramel maltiness that balances this beer with benevolence. With just one sip, this IRA will turn heads where ever it’s shared.
Not only are there two sides to the flavors and aromas of this beer, but have you seen the label?? The quirky artwork also has two sides and each tells a different story.
Style: Amber Ale
