FLAVORS OF THE SEASON
TWILIGHT SUMMER ALE
Break out those lawnmowers, BBQ’s and camping gear, because it’s ti me for the return of the summer beers. Twilight Summer Ale is a great compliment to those warm days and long nights where whole flower Amarillo, Northern Brewers, Cascade and Tettnang hops blend perfectly with sweet malts for a sensational seasonal ale. This clever, straw colored ale makes you think that you’re sippin’ on pure sunshine in a glass. Grab a 6-pack or two to share this summer ale with those you love most!
5.0% ABV | 35 IBU’s
Availability: May-September in 6-packs, 12-packs and draft where Deschutes beer is sold
FRESH SQUEEZED IPA
Perfectly named, this beer tastes like freshly juiced hops with a hint of malt to provide the perfect balance of flavors and aromas. Citra and Mosiac hops give the beer its tangerine AND citrus-like flavors and are a perfect combination to create a “fresh hop” flavor without using fresh hops. Enjoy a pint of this magnificent IPA on your back porch, with friends or with your favorite home cooked meal and SQUEEZE every last drop from your bottle…
BOND STREET SERIES
6.4%ABV | 60 IBU’s
Availability: June-September in 22-oz bottles and on draft where Deschutes beer is sold
BLACK BUTTE XXV
Happy 25th Birthday to us! This luscious dark imperial porter has a dried fruit sweetness from figs and dates, chocolate notes from cocoa nibs, a slight tartness from added currants, and a hint of vanilla from Bourbon barrel aging. Grab a snifter at our pubs’ 25th Birthday Celebrations on June 27th or grab a bottle at a bottle shop near you. Since we are still aging this delicious brew, specs will soon be available on our website. Cheers to 25 years of craft beers!
ABV and IBU’s TBD
Availability: Limited availability in 22-oz bottles and on draft where Deschutes beer is sold beginning late June
