For fans of Deschutes Brewery’s The Dissident, this Flanders-style sour brown ale will now be a yearly release from the Bend, Oregon based brewery. Beginning today, November 12, at 11:00am both the Deschutes Brewery Portland Public House and Deschutes Brewery Bend Public House will host the official launch of The Dissident 2015.
The Dissident 2015 comes in at 11.1% ABV and has been aging for 18 months in French Oak Barrels with Oregon Montmorency Cherries from Chapin Orchards out of Salem, OR. This Flanders-style sour Brown Ale (also known as an Oud Bruin), ferments with wild yeast giving this beer a tart flavor, but is well rounded in aroma and taste with a variety of malts and hints of oak from the barrel-aging process.
Today at both Deschutes Pubs, there will be Vintage Flights of the 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2015 The Dissident for $16. There is an extremely limited supply of the 2010 and 2012, so be sure to get in early to grab a taste before it’s gone! Samples of the 2015 vintage will be offered all day, along with a special paired culinary menu.
There will also be 22oz bottles of The Dissident 2015 for sale at $17 per bottle, with a limit of six bottles per person, per day. For those not in the Portland or Bend area use the Deschutes beer finder tool to find The Dissident 2015.
