With Winter now in full gear, Deschutes Brewery has released their winter favorites of Red Chair NWPA and Hop Henge Experimental IPA. Both of these beers are now available across the Deschutes increasing distribution channel.
Red Chair NWPA
The annual release of Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale (NWPA) is always welcomed and brings back skiing memories of taking the old “Red Chair” at Mt. Bachelor. Red Chair features several select European and domestic malts which take a surprisingly plush, satin run on the way to a citrusy, refreshing hop kick. It is the perfect brew to enjoy after a day hitting the slopes.

Hop Henge Experimental IPA
Never the same from year to year, Hop Henge Experimental IPA is Deschutes annual exercise in pure brewing creativity. This year, their brewers decided to use Millennium hops at the front-end of the brew, adding in Cascade, Centennial and Chinook at the back end. This delivers a strong hop presence.
