Press Release: Deschutes Brewery Releases Twilight Ale

Hard to believe it’s already that time of year. Twilight Ale is definitely one of the locals’ favorites.

June’s impending arrival signals the return of Deschutes Brewery’s summer seasonal, Twilight Ale. Employing four different hop varieties, the hints of citrus in this lively, crisp ale guarantee an easy-drinking beer that quenches the thirst of summer like no other. Dry-hopping with bold Amarillos provides the perfect finishing touch.

Twilight Ale is a refreshing choice whether consumed at the trailhead, in your backyard, or wherever your summer adventure finds you. Our brewers and chefs agree Twilight Ale pairs well with anything you can pack into a picnic basket, especially foods like bratwurst and potato salad, sharp cheddar cheeses, and BBQ chicken. Savor a chilled Twilight Ale as you squeeze the most out of the “never long enough summer."

The harmonious balance of hops and malt, not to mention the delicious Central Oregon water, earned this thirst quenching ale gold medals at the 2005 North American Beer Awards and the 2003 Great American Beer Festival.

Twilight Ale is one of several seasonal beers produced by Bend’s Deschutes Brewery, a pioneer of Oregon’s craft beer industry. Available in 6-packs, 12-packs and on draft in 12 western states, look for it June through September.
