The details:

  • 22oz bottles and draft will be available
  • Limits and pricing TBA
  • Limited distribution throughout the brewery’s footprint in late June/July

Commercial description:

Our 26th anniversary Imperial Porter was aged in bourbon barrels and dry spiced with Theo’s cocoa nibs, revealing hints of vanilla and chocolate. Pomegranate molasses and cranberries complement the robust flavor with a hint of fruit and just enough tart to make you smile. 10.2% ABV

Deschutes Brewery’s pubs are located at 1044 NW Bond St in Bend, OR and 210 NW 11th Ave in Portland, OR.
