Deschutes Beers Officially in Philadelphia
Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery celebrates their 25th anniversary with distribution (finally) to the Philadelphia area. The country’s fifth largest craft brewer has only been available in and around Philadelphia during Philly Beer Week but now, the Bend, Oregon beers will be available in both bottles and on draft.
Look for the brewery’s flagship Black Butter Porter as well as the rest of their line to be available in Berks, Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. It is the brewery’s first distribution to the East Coast. Deschutes Brewery’s President Michael LaLonde says “Philadelphia is a craft-savvy market that has welcomed us with open arms and gives us a perfect launch pad for our first distribution area on the East Coast.”
Mirror Pond Pale Ale, with a whole flower Cascade hops, complex aromas and multi-layered flavor.
Black Butte Porter, the brewery’s flagship brand, a smooth porter with slight hop bitterness, distinctive chocolate and roasted finish and creamy mouthfeel.
Chainbreaker White IPA, the 2012 number one selling new craft brand; brewed with wheat, pilsner malt and Citra hops for citrus aromas and thirst-quenching flavor.
In addition to these beers, Deschutes Brewery will also be sending the city bottles:
Fresh Squeezed IPA, part of the brewery’s experimental Bond Street Series
Inversion IPA, a big, bold IPA with intense multi-hop kick ideal for discriminating hop heads
Deschutes River Ale, a session beer built with craft soul resulting in a balance of hops and malt for a subtle, refreshing flavor.
A variety of seasonal and small-production beers will also be offered throughout the year.
