Deschutes The Dissident Release Celebration Dec. 12

Deschutes-The-DissidentThe 4th vintage of Deschutes The Dissident is finally ready, unveiling at the brewery’s Bend and Portland brewpubs on Friday, December 12 at 11am. This barrel-aged sour brown ale with local cherries takes 2 years to produce, so don’t sleep unless you plan on waiting until 2016.

The details:

  • Limit 3 bottles per person, per day
  • 2010, 2012 and 2014 vintages will be on tap

Commercial descriptions:

The Dissident is an Oud Bruin, a distinctive Flanders-style sour brown ale, with a heavenly aroma and flavor. Our first wild yeast beer, we use Brettanomyces and local cherries to give The Dissident its characteristic sour taste. Our stiffest brewing challenge, it must be fermented in isolation from our other beers for a full 18 months, partly in pinot and cabernet barrels. The words coddled and “worth it” come to mind. 11.4% ABV

Deschutes Brewery is located at 210 NW 11th Ave in Portland and 1044 NW Bond Street in Bend, OR.
