Hood River, OR – November 2021 – Double Mountain Brewery & Cidery’s final seasonal of 2021 coincides with the arrival of colder temps, shorter days, flannel shirts, and the end of another year. This delectable Chocolate Stout will add some comfort to your palate with a touch of sweetness making you think of powder days and good things to come. Brewed in collaboration with Ranger Chocolate Co., this smooth stout is perfect for cooler days. Notes of dark bread, baking chocolate, molasses, and dark fruit lead into a dry finish. The Double Mountain and Ranger collaboration Chocolate Stout is available in refillable 500ml bottles and on draft at our Hood River Taproom, SE Portland Taproom in the Woodstock neighborhood, and at fine establishments throughout the Northwest.

“We partnered with our Friends at Ranger Chocolate and made a stout because Beer is always better when it’s made of chocolate” Malachi Vanderpuye, Brewer Malachi Vanderpuye

With news appearing throughout media outlets on the shortcomings of recycling and OPB reporting that Oregon recycling is on the decline, we determined that there is no better time than the present to share the information on why to choose refillable bottles. Complimenting this delicious experimental series, each beer’s label highlights the benefits of using refillable bottles. The carbon footprint of refillable bottles is vastly lower than other container choices, making it the best container for the environment. Add the benefit of reduced oxidation, and refillable bottles are better for the beer too. Reduce, Reuse, Repeat, a solid mantra, not only for refillable bottles but containers in general.
