Today, Sunday June 27, marks one of Oregon’s favorite brewery’s 22nd Anniversary. Deschutes is throwing outdoor parties at their Bend and Portland brewpubs to celebrate. This also marks the release date of their Reserve Series Black Butte XXII Imperial Porter. These two events will feature live music, food and beer for all at their biggest outdoor parties of the season. Deschutes’ giant traveling barrel on wheels known as “Woody”, will be present at the Portland pub.
Unfortunately, we recently learned from employees that this year there will be no Black Butte XXII in bottles. From what Brewpublic learned, this was due to an issue with the cocoa butter in the beer that coagulated in the bottle and had to be disposed of. This also raises the fear of rancidity as well. At this time, it has not been reported as to how much this mishap has cost Oregon’s largest brewery. Kegs of Black Butte XXI, however, will be available, yet limited to the Deschutes pubs in order to regulate the quality and to assure no problems arise. Look for more information on the Black Butte XXII situation as we learn more…
Visit the pubs to try the new brew on draught, which is reported to be quite delicious. There will also be specials on an array of other fine Deschutes brews and those exclusive to their pubs.
