Black Butte Porter
With a dark beer as our first and flagship brand, Black Butte defined Deschutes as a radical player. A slight hop bitterness up front enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish. It's prized for its creamy mouthfeel and intense complex flavors. Malt: Pale, Carapils, Chocolate, Crystal, Wheat; Hops: Cascade, Bravo, Tettnang. Watch Brewer Veronica Vega talk about the wisdom in failure and the brewery's flagship beer, Black Butte Porter. IBUs 30; Alcohol by Vol. 5.2%
Mirror Pond Pale Ale
Our most popular beer, Mirror Pond Pale Ale is the quintessential northwest pale ale. Cascade hops and more Cascade hops give this tawny colored ale delicious hop-forward aroma and flavor. Pale malt allows the hops to linger, not overpower. Malt: Pale, NW Pale, Crystal, Carapils; Hops: Cascade. Watch Brewer John Abraham talk about golden retrievers and unconditional love when it comes to Mirror Pond Pale Ale. IBUs 40; Alcohol by Vol. 5%
Deschutes River Ale
Once called Riviere des Chutes by French Trappers the Deschutes River feeds our beers and souls alike. Merci. Here's one that's clean and refreshing enough for the long haul, but fully graced with hop aroma, malt heft and clear craft passion. Sit back, relax, and let the subtle pleasures reveal. Malt: Pale, Munich, Carapils, Crystal; Hops: Cascade, Crystal, Nugget. IBUs 28; Alcohol by Vol. 4%
Paradise is stumbling upon our whole flower hop room and inhaling. Inversion IPA is as close as you can get without knowing somebody. Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA's intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads. Malt: Pale, Crystal, Munich, Caramel; Hops: Millennium, Horizon, Centennial, Northern Brewer, Cascade, Citra. IBUs 80; Alcohol by Vol. 6.8%
Deep, robust and richly rewarding, this is beer to linger over. Obsidian has distinct notes of espresso, chocolate, roasted malt and black barley, with just enough hop bite to cut the sweetness. Malt: Pale, Crystal, Carapils, Munich, Black Barley, Roasted Barley, Wheat; Hops: Nugget, Millennium, Willamette, Northern Brewer. IBUs 55; Alcohol by Vol. 6.4%
Fresh Squeezed IPA
This mouthwateringly delicious IPA gets its flavor from a heavy helping of citra and mosaic hops. Don't worry, no fruit was harmed in the making of this beer.
This lively IPA delivers a crisp and light malt body with ample citrus and pine notes from Chinook and Equinox hops. Inspired by the aromas and silence we experience when exploring the scenic pine forests just up the road from our brewhouse.
A new style of craft experimentation is born with the second-generation of Armory XPA– a refreshing pale that carries on its predecessor's mission to discover the next great hop, replacing Citra with the tropical Hop #07270. While most Deschutes beers endure rigorous testing at the hands of our pub patrons before receiving six-pack approval, with Armory XPA we want you to share in the process with us.
