Deschutes/Boulevard collaboration

The news came out yesterday that Deschutes Brewery and Boulevard Brewing Company will be brewing a collaboration beer; I posted the press release which has the details, but the gist is that they’ll be working together on a “White IPA” (a counterpoint to all those Black IPAs?): it “combines Boulevard’s expertise in making Belgian-style witbiers with Deschutes’ mastery in brewing hop-forward ales.” So it’s either a Belgian Wit brewed with IPA-level hopping, or (as Deschutes … Continue reading →

This CDA has a big floral … Continue reading →
