Speaking of Deschutes (right on the heels of the previous post press release), they twittered last night—and have an update on their home page—that The Dissident is bottled, waxed, and will be available on September 2nd:
After much anticipation, Deschutes Brewery is proud to introduce its wildest brew yet – The Dissident. Arguing for more time in the cellar, this Reserve Series beer is anything but conventional. Fermented for more than 18 months in isolation from the rest of the beers, The Dissident is a distinctive Oud Bruin, Flanders-style brown ale, with a fruity aroma and flavor, the first wild yeast beer made by Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery.
A very limited amount of The Dissident will be available September 2nd as part of the brewery’s Reserve Series in hand-waxed 22-ounce bottles and on draft at select establishments.
September 2nd! That’s only six days away! You can bet I’ll be looking to squirrel away some bottles.
