If you missed out on the Deschutes tasting at Bottles last night, then, well, you certainly missed out.
(Never mind that we gave you the wrong time… It was 5-7pm, not 6-8pm. We maintain we were given the wrong time. Or that we were given the time after a few too many sips at their wine tasting. Either way.)
Anyway! The beers sampled should be familiar to most, but for a quick walkthrough…
- Jubelale! A good, but not great entry into the Jubelale line of seasonals. They also handed out some really cool (and well produced) Jubelale posters.
- Mirror Mirror! The barleywine based on Mirror Pond. Always a fun one.
- Black Butte XXI! My personal favorite is the Black Butte Porter on Crack. (Its official name.)
- The Abyss! The legendary Deschutes reserve.
Bottles probably still have some bottles left, so run pick some up. And remember, each bottle has a “Best After” print on them. In other words, store them like you’d store a wine.
