Deschutes Brewery turns 29 this year, and for the ninth year in a row, a beer will be released to commemorate the occasion.

The Bend, Ore.-based brewery has released an imperial barrel-aged version of Black Butte every year since its 20th anniversary in 2008, and the beer is based on its popular Black Butte porter (5.2 percent ABV.) The brewery was originally founded as a brewpub in 1998 and is named after the Deschutes River.
According to a post on Deschutes’ Facebook page, Black Butte XXIX will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and is being released on June 27.
