Deschutes Brewery is preparing to release a few beers that will interest you. One is a beer that's released once a decade (and occasionally in the middle of the decade), the other is a new year-round IPA.
Jubel 2015: Originally planned as a once-per-decade brew, this “Super Jubel” was last bottled in 2010. The brewery just couldn’t wait another five years to release it again. Thus…Jubel 2015. It was “discovered” by accident two decades ago when a clumsy burglar didn’t realize the weight of his stolen keg of Jubelale in the dead of the Oregon winter. The remaining liquid from the half-frozen keg was a highly concentrated “Jubelale on steroids.” It was so good the brewers set about recreating it, eventually aging it in Pinot Noir barrels for good measure. Jubel 2015 is a multi-dimensional brew with a bigger, fuller take on the flavors found in Jubelale.

Pinedrops IPA: Another Bond Street Series beer has made its way into six-packs – joining Fresh Squeezed IPA in the year-round line up! Born at our original brew pub in bend, Pinedrops IPA (like all our Bond Street brews) was popular among our fans after being available as a draft-only offering last year, so we decided to bottle it. This lively IPA delivers a crisp and light malt body with ample citrus and pine notes from Chinook and experimental hops. Inspired by the aromas and serenity we experience when exploring the scenic pine forests just up the road from our brewhouse.
