Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA

Have you had Deschutes Brewery’s Fresh Squeezed IPA yet? I’ve had it on tap a number of times already but since Deschutes also sent me a bottle I scratched down some notes to relate here. Of course it occurred to me after I wrote my Session post last Friday that this review would have been the perfect accompaniment to it, since Fresh Squeezed fits all the points I talked about for one of the reasons … Continue reading →

Received: Black Butte XXV

Just before going out of town last week (on a vacation/anniversary trip to Las Vegas, a post about which will be appearing soon), I received a bottle of Deschutes Brewery‘s anniversary beer, Black Butte XXV.

Looking forward to drinking the bottled version.

Photos from last night’s Firkin-A event

Last night was Deschutes Brewery‘s Firkin-A cask beer event, and they did a really nice job of putting it on and inviting other brewers to come and pour their casked offerings—including 10 Barrel Brewing, McMenamins Old St. Francis School, and Brewers Union Local 180. (Worthy Brewing was originally going to be there too, but blew out the bung on their cask the night before, so had nothing to bring unfortunately.) The event took over the … Continue reading →
