Deschutes Brewery Tap Takeover
Fri. May 17th / 5pm
Brewer’s Republic / 112 N. Nevada, Colorado Springs
Seeing as how the director of Focus on the Beer is from Oregon, we figured our first “tourist tap takeover” at Brewer’s Republic should be from an Oregon Brewery. In the past, Brewer’s Republic has dedicated one tap handle to an outside-of-Colorado brewery and through our partnership with them we’re hoping to do this on a monthly basis. On Friday, May 17th, you will be treated to one of our favorite breweries. Deschutes Brewery is located in Bend, Oregon, with an annex brewpub in Portland. Opening in 1988, the brewery has not only become a classic in the Pacific NW, its beers are still regarded as some of the best in the industry by geeks and professionals alike.
The beers that will be tapped include the dark, complex, and special 2012 Abyss brewed with licorice and cherry bark, partially aged in bourbon, oak, and wine barrels. Additionally, Armory XPA is an experimental Pale Ale normally only served at the taproom in Portland. In addition to those specialty beers, we’ll get to try Mirror Pond Pale Ale. This is THE BEER that changed the world for the director of Focus on the Beer. We’ll also get the very fun and tasty Chainbreaker White IPA, and the brand new 4% session River Ale, which will certainly become a go-to summer quaffing beer for many.
Hope to see you there!
