Twilight AleTwilight Ale. As the summer days stretch into night, Twilight Ale arrives to celebrate the long lazy hours. It's a spry, full flavored ale with an attractive aroma. A complementary malt presence imparts just enough tension to its refreshingly crisp, dry profile. Signature Amarillos make Twilight something best enjoyed chilled and savored outdoors.
Available across the western U.S. in six-packs, twelve-packs, and on draft from April through September.
ABV 5.0% IBU's 35

Hop in the Dark Cascadian Dark AleHop in the Dark. What takes 22 brews and more than a year of experiments to reach perfection? Deschutes Brewery's newest Bond Street Series release: Hop in the Dark Cascadian Dark Ale (CDA). What's a CDA? CDA is an emerging beer style in the Pacific Northwest, also known as Black IPA. There has been significant debate in the region recently concerning the name of this emerging style. Deschutes Brewery casts its vote with Hop in the Dark Cascadian Dark Ale.
Available across the western U.S. in 22 oz bottles and on draft from late-May through September.
ABV 6.5% IBU's 75
