Received: This year’s batch of Twilight Ale

Even though it’s been only a month or so of spring, I received three bottles of Deschutes Brewery‘s Twilight Summer Ale yesterday. The “best by” date is July 25, which makes me think it must have only been bottled a few days ago (i.e., April 25), so it really doesn’t get much fresher than this.

Received: 3 Deschutes bombers

These arrived yesterday afternoon from Deschutes Brewery: A bottle each of the new year-round offerings being released in 22-ounce bombers: Pine Mountain Pilsner, Armory XPA, and (the return of) Cinder Cone Red Ale. All good beers I’m glad to see in bottles.

This is one tasty beer and a worthy addition to the lineup.

Recently received beers

An eight-pack of beer from Portland Brewing, containing two 22-ounce bottles each of MacTarnahan’s Amber Ale, IPA, BlackWatch Cream Porter, and Royal Anne Cherry Stout. I’m looking forward to drinking all of … Continue reading →
