Deschutes Releases Black Butte XXIV; The Dissident, Hop Trip and Chasin’ Freshies Coming in September
I’m a big fan of Deschutes Brewery’s special release beers, and two of my favorites are coming to retail shelves in Seattle soon. Black Butte XXIV has already been released at the Deschutes breweries and it shouldn’t be long until we see it here in Seattle. The Dissident only comes around every two years, and a limited supply will be released in September.
BLACK BUTTE XXIV
Our 24th Anniversary Release is back in black with a couple of new additions this year including fresh Daglet dates and Mission figs. You’ll still get flavors of dark chocolate and Bourbon roasty goodness but after one sip…you’ll be hooked. Grab a few bottles for aging and one for now! Cheers to 24 years of Deschutes beers!
11.0% ABV | 55 IBU’s
Availability: Now in 22-oz bottles and draft in limited quantities
Pucker up, sour fans…it’s time for the return of our favorite Flanders-style brown ale. As our only bottled wild yeast beer, we use fresh tart pie cherries from Oregon and Brettanomyces to give this beer unique flavors and aromas that will have you singing, “Wild Thing” by The Troggs. Snag a bottle while they last and savor the sour!
~10.5% ABV | ~30 IBU’s
Availability: Very limited in 22-oz bottles beginning mid-September
Each year at the beginning of the fall season, Deschutes brewers head over the pass to Doug Weather’s hop fields near Salem, Oregon for the harvest. After bagging these aromatic green cones of awesomeness, we hustle back to toss these hops into the brew kettle within four hours of picking. Our reward: a pale ale with a bright citrus flavor and an amazing floral hop aroma. Take the trip with us, the Hop Trip!
BOND STREET SERIES

The first time in a bottle, this Fresh Hop IPA is perfect for the fall season and packs a citrusy punch! We’re always seeking the freshest powder on the mountain or the freshest hops from the harvest and this beer will quench your desires for both. Fresh Heirloom Cascade Hops from our friends at Goshie Farms are added to the brew for flavor and aroma to delight your taste buds. Be sure to chase this beer down and enjoy as fresh as possible!
