Received: Deschutes Jubelale (2016)

In addition to Halloween, it’s now officially winter beer season as well, as these arrived yesterday: Deschutes Brewery’s Jubelale is one of my favorite winter beers, and I’m pleased that this year it’s arriving in October rather than August!

Received: McMenamins Black Widow Porter (2016)

This came last week in fact: McMenamins‘ annual Halloween seasonal, Black Widow Porter. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the first brewing of this beer, at the Thompson Brewery in Salem. In addition to the bottled version, each of the breweries also brewed Black Widow to serve on draft, which will go on tap October 15.

Received: 2 Towns, 1 Book

Two different press/media arrivals last week: The Book of Dangerous Cocktails, and the imperial winter/holiday cider Nice & Naughty from 2 Towns Ciderhouse. Not sure if there’s a theme. I will note neither of these things have much to do with beer directly; a quick check of the index of the book only showed two beer-related recipes, though there’s a significant focus on marijuana-infused drinks.

Received: 2 Towns Hollow Jack Pumpkin Cider

The latest seasonal limited cider creation from 2 Towns Ciderhouse arrived this week: Their new Hollow Jack pumpkin cider, made with both pumpkins and sweet potatoes (as well as spices).
