Turns out that it's not the ex employee and his insurance company suing Deschutes.  The guy had no insurance, which is why State Farm is going after Deschutes and the strip club.

Sounds like just Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Black Butte Porter starting on March 29th.  Wonder when we'll start seeing their other stuff.

Very true.  Black Butte is tasty stuff and the best selling craft porter in the US.  Mirror Ponds is pretty good stuff too and their best selling beer.  Hope seasonals and limited releases follow at some point.

Enjoy these tasty brews while they are available!

Twilight AleTwilight Ale. As the summer days stretch into night, Twilight Ale arrives to celebrate the long lazy hours. It's a spry, full flavored ale with an attractive aroma. A complementary malt presence imparts just enough tension to its refreshingly crisp, dry profile. Signature Amarillos make Twilight something best enjoyed chilled and savored outdoors.
Available across the western U.S. in six-packs, twelve-packs, and on draft from April through September.
ABV 5.0% IBU's 35

Hop in the Dark Cascadian Dark AleHop in the Dark. What takes 22 brews and more than a year of experiments to reach perfection? Deschutes Brewery's newest Bond Street Series release: Hop in the Dark Cascadian Dark Ale (CDA). What's a CDA? CDA is an emerging beer style in the Pacific Northwest, also known as Black IPA. There has been significant debate in the region recently concerning the name of this emerging style. Deschutes Brewery casts its vote with Hop in the Dark Cascadian Dark Ale.
Available across the western U.S. in 22 oz bottles and on draft from late-May through September.
ABV 6.5% IBU's 75

BEER RELEASES & EVERYTHING ELSE
 
Jubelale
 
When:             October-December
What:              Winter Seasonal (6-packs, 12-packs and draft)
Every year, fall’s crisp, cool air signals the imminent arrival of winter. Thoughts of snow, friends and family, the holidays, and — Jubelale. Brewed with dark crystal malt creating a luscious holiday note with bountiful hops to excite your taste buds— it’s easy to see why Jubelale is the perfect complement to the season.
 
Where:           Available in all 15 states where Deschutes is sold
 
Beer Geek Information:

60 IBUs
 
The Dissident
 
When:             October
What:              Reserve Series (22-ounce wax-dipped bottles and draft)
Eighteen months in isolation, The Dissident is a distinctive Flanders-style brown ale, with a fruity aroma and flavor. Our only wild yeast beer, brettanomyces and lactobacillus impart its characteristic sour taste. Lavished with whole western Washington cherries - pits, stems and all – (which, by the way, our brewmaster picks out personally during family vacations, to the tune of much eye-rolling from his children). It’s our wildest, most expensively pampered beer.
 
Where:           Available in all 15 states where Deschutes is sold

The Abyss
 
When:             Late November
What:              Reserve Series (22-ounce wax-dipped bottles and draft)
The Abyss has immeasurable depth inviting you to explore and discover its rich, complex profile. Hints of molasses, licorice and other alluring flavors draw you in further and further with each sip. And at 11% alcohol by volume, you will want to slowly savor each and every ounce.
2010 marks the fifth release of this dark and mysterious imperial stout.

Thank you for your inquiry. We have not yet secured label approval for The Abyss or The Dissident in Texas (not sure about Jubelale but that one is likely) so I am sorry about the incorrect statement in the press release you sent. We are still hoping the label approval will go through but it hasn't in the past. We will keep on trying!
Cheers!

BEER NEWS


The Abyss

WHEN:          November

WHAT:           Reserve Series (22-ounce wax-dipped bottles and draft)
In its magical seventh release, the 2012 version of The Abyss is no less tempting than it was when it first hit the adventurous palates of craft beer lovers back in 2006.  This imperial stout is the heart and soul of Deschutes Brewery’s Reserve Series beers, with an endless crevasse of flavor that reveals itself each November (or whenever this cellarable beer is broken out of its wax-sealed hibernation). World’s Best Stout & Porter - 2012 World Beer Awards; Silver Award - European Beer Star

Winner of the World’s Best Beer at the World Beer Awards for the second time in three years, this spring seasonal swept the world stage also winning in the categories of World’s Best Pale, World’s Best Pale Ale, and The Americas Best Pale Ale. We invite you to take a smooth ride on the Red Chair and enjoy its subtle aromatic seduction for yourself.

Hop Henge Experimental Ale

WHAT:           Bond Street Series (22-ounce bottles and draft)
Deschutes Brewery’s Hop Henge Experimental IPA is an annual exercise in pure brewing creativity. Hop Henge uses several new hop processes and techniques to create a truly unique and unexpected beer. Each year, our brewing team uses something a little different, including several pounds Centennial, Cascade and other hops to top it off. A blend of crystal, pale and caraston malts creates an overall biscuity characteristic that is dense and muscular, building the alcohol base to support the monstrous hop profile.

Deschutes River Ale underlines the importance of the river to the culture and inspiration that has fed Deschutes beers for nearly a quarter century. It is a well-balanced and refreshing ale, full of Cascade and Crystal hop character, malt poise and a large helping of craft passion.

FLAVORS OF THE SEASON
 
DESCHUTES RIVER ALE
 If you are looking for a drinkable, crisp and refreshing beer that is full of Cascade and Crystal hop character and a great malt balance? Then have we got the beer for you. Deschutes River Ale gets its name from the river that has fed culture and inspiration to Deschutes beers for nearly a quarter century. After lots of experimentation, our brewers have created an approachable beer that honors its namesake and reminds us of the programs that we support to protect the health of the Deschutes River. This new year-round ale will be hitting shelves and palates this spring just in time for warmer weather and outdoor adventures. Be sure to grab a pint or bottle any time of year...your taste buds will thank you!
 
YEAR-ROUND
4.0% ABV | 28 IBU's
Availability: 6-packs and draft where Deschutes beer is sold
CLASS OF '88: BARLEY WINE

What were you doing in 1988? While we were wearing our acid wash jeans, watching "Who's The Boss"? and listening to Gloria Estefan...several micro breweries were making their start creating tasty craft beer like no other. In celebration of this momentous year, we've partnered up with other craft breweries, who are also celebrating their 25th Anniversary, to create a series of collaborations that will be known as Class of '88. The first of these collaborations will be with North Coast Brewing Company and Rogue Ales. We agreed on creating a Barley Wine recipe together that will be brewed at each location and then bottled, and shipped to each respective breweries' distribution area. In producing the beer this way, you have the opportunity to try all 3 versions side by side for a triple or trifecta comparison! Look for all 3 versions on shelves and on draft in late March 2013. 
 
CLASS OF '88 SERIES
~9.5% ABV | 75 IBU's
Availability: 22-oz bottles and on draft in limited quantities

got curious about Abyss after reading some information elsewhere.  emailed them and got this response:



" The recipe for Abyss has remained the same year in and out although some raw materials used (hops, malt, barrels) have slight differences year to year depending on grow seasons, uses etc. The only difference in barrels would be in 2012 we started using the bourbon barrel portion for only one use (or 1 year of beer aging) instead of 2-3 uses, and this year the barrel aged portion was increased to approx. 50% of the final blend instead of the previous standard of around 25-30% barrel aged. Other than those slight subtle changes everything has remained the same. "

Timeline:  It’s going to take us a couple of years to plan and build our east coast brewery. At this point we anticipate breaking ground in 2019. If all goes according to plan (fingers crossed) this would put us on track to be shipping beer from our new brewery, complete with tasting room, in 2021.

That is a long way off.

Cheap real estate, I'm sure they got a sweetheart deal from the state (our Governor likes making deals for breweries it seems), easy access to I81 for shipping up & down the east coast. 

Just speculating.

Deschutes Pinot Suave label BeerPulse
Pinot Suave

When: Early May

What: Reserve Series (22-ounce, wax-dipped bottles and draft)

Smooth and slightly sexy…Pinot Suave is a Belgian style beauty aged in French oak and Pinot Noir barrels filled with Pinot grape must. Part of our limited Reserve Series lineup, this new beer is the first of five releases not to be missed in 2016. The result is a unique flavor profile with some delicate notes of acidity and wine tannins. The light malt body makes sure the berry flavors stay at the forefront.

Where: Limited quantities available most places Deschutes is sold
