Deschutes Releases Black Butte XXIV; The Dissident, Hop Trip and Chasin’ Freshies Coming in September

August 1st, 2012 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

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.


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

The Dissident 12 label


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!
5.4% ABV | 38 IBU’s
Availability: 6-packs and on draft in late September


Chasin' Freshies labelThe 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!
7.2% ABV | 65 IBU’s
Availability: 22-oz bottles beginning late-September

    Anyone see bottles of Black Butte XXIV in the Seattle/Eastside area yet?

  • dbennett

    Same question… looking for black butte XXIV somewhere on the Eastside.

  • Kaiser

    It’s all over the place in Seattle now, so I’m assuming if it it hasn’t hit places like Malt & Vine, Whole Foods, Total Wine or Pete’s that it will be very shortly.

    We’ll be tapping a keg of XXIV here at Slaughter County Brewing this weekend.

    RE: Black Butte XXIV … found mine at Whole Foods on 15th (Interurban). Bought 1 for now, one for aging. It’s a really fantastic beer, big stuff going on in there! Can really taste the figs, dates, and cocoa. It’s a really big beer and well worth the price.

    Way to go Scott – I know the beer won’t last long. Thanks for posting your taps on Facebook.
