Press Release: Cinder Cone Red Returns in Time for Spring

This press release came into my email today. Cinder Cone Red, from Deschutes, is one of the more popular of their seasonal releases around here; it’s also solidly in the “Northwest Red” style of beers. (Cf.)

Also, they’ve changed the label design up a bit; check out the before and after pics after the release.

Deschutes Brewery’s Cinder Cone Red is the perfect way to end a day on one of Central Oregon’s scenic trails – with a diverse selection of hops and barley, this flavorful ale captivates any thirsty palate. Amarillo hops showcase the intense citrus aromas and defined bitterness, while crystal malt and black barley give Cinder Cone Red its distinguished reddish hue.

As the weather warms and spring takes hold, grab a Cinder Cone Red to celebrate the return of longer days and more time to spend outdoors. Our brewers and pub chefs agree, Cinder Cone Red pairs brilliantly with that inaugural rack of barbecue ribs announcing the return of grilling season!

Cinder Cone Red is available this year in 6-packs, 12-packs and at draft locations from late March until June when summer and Twilight Ale arrive.

5.4% Alcohol by Volume (ABV)
55 International Bitterness Units (IBU)
