Next Friday, Deschutes Brewery will be adding not one, not two, but three new beers to its Pub Reserve Series, which includes releases where the brewers are given “free reign to try something we’ve never done before” and are sold exclusively at the brewery’s two pubs and tasting room located in Portland, Ore. and Bend, Colo.
The first beer to be released will be Pilsner Pie, a 5.8 percent ABV pilsner aged in oak pinot wine casks with key lime.
The second beer will be Flanders Black Ale, a 10.4 percent export stout brewed with brettanomyces and aged in bourbon barrels.
Finally, Deschutes will be releasing Old ‘Schutes Stock Ale, a 9.6 percent ABV “experienced ale” brewed with brettanomyces claussenii and aged in oak barrels.
The first beer in the Pub Reserve Series was Big Red, a 9.3 percent ABV imperial red ale that was released in late 2013, and there have been more than 15 releases since that time.
According to a post on Deschutes’ Facebook page, Pilsner Pie, Flanders Black Ale and Old ‘Schutes Stock Ale will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and will be released at an event on May 27.
