10 Barrel’s pumpkin flight

Yes, another pumpkin beer post, after Thanksgiving even! In my ongoing hunt for Oregon-brewed pumpkin beers, I was happy to find that Bend’s 10 Barrel Brewing not only brewed up a pumpkin ale this year—they did three, and recently were (and may still be) offering them on tap at their pub in a special taster flight for all three of them. So the weekend before the holiday we’d stopped in for lunch and I tried them … Continue reading →

Of course, beer was served as well: … Continue reading →

Hop Press: Brewing peanut butter and jelly beer

At its base, these would be bread, peanuts, and fruit—the type of fruit you would typically find in a jelly: I’m thinking either … Continue reading →

St. Patrick’s Day beer in Bend

St. Patrick’s Day is just around the corner, and (partially) at the behest of a reader, I’m compiling a list of the appropriately-themed beers from Bend’s various breweries. Of course, an Irish-themed holiday usually calls for Stout, so I’ve listed each brewery’s house Stout (if they have one)—but of course, it’s the seasonals we’re after as well. Update: BBC also has Irish Stout, according to their Facebook post today. Deschutes Brewery Obsidian Stout: “Obsidian Stout … Continue reading →
