Very cool Denny!

I can't get their beers here in Delaware.  :(

Maybe in Philly though as I'll be there on Friday for the start of "Philly Beer Week". I'll ask around... :)

way cool - I've never had any of their beers, but have always wanted to try Black Butte, Red Chair and Mirror Pond.

in the Inversion IPA they use Crystal and Caramel 60 Malt  ???  any insight?

Thanks much. The BJCP Style Guide references a number of their beers, but I've never had the chance to try them.

Nice!  Mirror Pond is my go-to everymans commercial beer and I was born in Bend.  I gotta love Deschutes!

They're getting closer and closer to Illinois  ;D I really miss them from my time in the PNW.

I'm surprised Black Butte is only chocolate wheat and crystal. That has such a robust flavor. Pity they left out IBUs.

I was disappointed when they stopped producing cinder cone red ale.  I loved that stuff. Thanks Denny for posting this. I miss the PNW.  My time there was way too short.

I have a pdf with their Cinder Cone info on my home computer. I'll post that when I get a chance.

looking at their 'recipes' an interesting thing popped out at me.... they list English Ale as the yeast for ALL their beers. And that includes the Dissident, listed as a Sour Flemish Brown, using English Ale/Wild Yeast. I haven't had enough of their beers to know, but is that all just one yeast? Do they all have a common 'house' flavor?

Please do I love that beer.  In fact I am making a red this weekend.

I'd guess "Crystal" is a UK malt, since they typically use that naming convention (Crystal, Medium Crystal, Dark Crystal, Extra Dark Crystal, or something like that). So it's probably a 30-40 Lovibond malt, and the Caramel 60 is a domestic crystal malt.

I grabbed this from their website after they announced its retirement.

Pity they left out IBUs.

Click the link to the beer description page when looking at the recipe page.  Shows alc % and IBU's.
