Flavors of the Season
JubelaleJubelale is the ultimate festive beer and the object of great anticipation as the season approaches. The first beer Deschutes ever bottled, it has carved out its own category with a unique flavor and devoted following. Dark crystal malt, deep roasted flavor, and beautifully balanced hopping create the perfect celebration beer.

This year Oregon artist Natasha Bacca's unique "Creation of Light" graces the label. Bacca says, "...this piece illustrates a cold winter night in the background, with a dynamic, warm fire in the foreground. I wanted the composition of the work to exhibit a balance of cool scenery elements with the warm and energetic celebrations of the season, exemplifying this festive time of year." Jubelale is available across the western U.S. from October through December.  ABV 6.7% IBU's 60

Hop TripHop Trip. With a fresh hop pale ale, timing is everything.  Celebrating the hop harvest at its freshest, we literally rush out to Sodbuster Farm, just north of Salem, OR, gather their just-picked Crystal hop harvest, and rush it back to the brew kettles in Bend within 6 hours. More than a brewing curiosity, it's an intriguing testament to the various shades of this remarkable flower. Hop Trip is available now in 22 oz. bottles and on draft until it's gone, gone, gone...  ABV 5.5% IBU's 38
