Deschutes summer releases update: Twilight, Foray Belgian IPA, Black Butte XXVI

Deschutes Twilight Summer Ale

(Bend, OR) – Deschutes Brewery shared some info regarding summer releases this week. Be on the lookout for Hop in the Dark and Not the Stoic this month. These three beers will follow…not to mention, the Doppel Dinkel collab that the brewery hasn’t announced yet.

Twilight Summer Ale

When: May to September

What: Summer Seasonal (6-packs, 12-packs and draft)

When Twilight Summer Ale starts to show up on the shelves of your favorite store (or tap handles of your favorite bar), then you can be sure that summer is on the way. The vigorous, yet easy-drinking hop essence of this brew is as essential to the season as baseball, BBQs and the smell of freshly cut grass. Twilight Summer Ale’s crisp wafer-like body complements its clever medley of four hops and malts. Whole cone Amarillo, Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Tettnang hops sing next to subtle Cara-Pils and Carastan malts. Twilight Summer Ale is magic guaranteed to make the summer even more rewarding.

Deschutes Foray Belgian IPA label

Foray Belgian-Style IPA

When: June

What: Bond Street Series (22-ounce bottles and draft)

A brand-new addition to our lineup, this beer made its way into bottles the same way all our Bond Street Series beers do – by being a popular “experiment” at our pubs. When our “focus group” of pub patrons rave about one of our pub exclusive beers loud enough and for long enough, we make every attempt to make it more widely available to our fans. Foray is a journey during which Belgian yeast delivers hints of apples and pear, and a citrus Galaxy hop aroma make this a trip worth taking. Bon Voyage!

Where: Limited availability everywhere Deschutes is sold

Beer Geek Information: TBD

Black Butte XXVI

When: June 27th

What: Reserve Series (22-ounce wax-dipped bottles and draft)

Every year, we celebrate our anniversary with a huge double version of our flagship Black Butte Porter. Our brewers love to experiment and they always add some fun new ingredients to this beer to celebrate. In the past, you may have found chilies, chocolate nibs, dates, figs and other such goodies. This year, our brewmasters tell us that they’ve added cranberries, pomegranate molasses and Theo’s cocoa nibs to this 50 percent bourbon barrel-aged wonder. Like all of our Reserve Series beers, we encourage you to drink one upon its release and put some away for later. Some things just get better with age!

Where: Limited availability in all 25 states where Deschutes is sold
