What to drink

Fresh Squeezed IPA (6.4% ABV, 60 IBU): This mouthwatering, delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. 

Black Butte Porter (5.2% ABV, 30 IBU): The beer that started it all for Deschutes. A delicate, creamy mouthfeel contrasts with layered depth revealing distinctive chocolate and coffee notes. Dark and rich, yet easy to drink.

Mirror Pond Pale Ale (5% ABV, 40 IBU): The quintessential Northwest pale ale. Cascade hops and more Cascade hops give this tawny colored ale delicious hop-forward aroma and flavor. Pale malt allows the hops to linger, not overpower.

Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale (6.2% ABV, 60 IBU): The citrus punch of big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Seven select European and domestic malts round out the edges for a complex, copper-colored brew.

Inversion IPA (6.8%, 80 IBU): Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA's intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Caramel malts. For discriminating hop heads.
