After a successful launch this past fall, the second installment in Three Creeks Brewing specialty Desperado Series is now available. TenPine Chocolate Porter is pouring on draft and can be found in 22oz bottles.
TenPine Chocolate Porter is said to be a true chocoholic’s dream. This amped up version of Three Creeks’ popular FivePine Chocolate Porter features double the chocolate malt and double the dark Belgian chocolate in the boil along with organic Cacao nibs added in the conditioning tank. The beer clocks in at 8.4% ABV.
Launched in Fall 2014 with the release of Bulletproof Coffee Stout, the Desperado Series features a quarterly limited release of specialty beers. The 2015 Schedule features TenPine Chocolate Porter (Winter 2015), Stampede Ale (Spring 2015), Vaquero Imperial IPA (Summer 2015) and the return of Bulletproof Coffee Stout (Fall 2015).
In other news coming from Three Creeks Head Brewer, Zach Beckwith, informs us that the brewery’s third 12oz can, Knotty Blonde will be hitting the market in the coming weeks. Knotty Blonde joins Hoodoo Voodoo IPA and FivePine Porter to close out the Three Creeks year-round can beer lineup.

Then next month its new bottled spring seasonal will be launching. Three Creeks pub favorite, Firestorm Red, will be making its way to bottleshops across the Pacific Northwest.
