Deschutes a Hit

Not even a crippling winter storm and a polar vortex could stop the Deschutes Brewery rollout in Ohio and Kentucky! Despite temperatures at or below 10° and treacherous driving conditions throughout the region, Ohioans and Kentuckians still found a way to exceed sales expectations. This proves once and for all what we’ve always said: there isn’t anything in this world that can keep a craft beer lover from a good brew.

Founded in 1988 in Bend, Oregon, the family- and employee-owned Deschutes is well known in the craft world for its award-winning lineup of pioneering beers headlined by Black Butte Porter, the number one selling craft porter in the country. Celebrating their 25th anniversary this year, Deschutes has conquered the vast majority of the western half of the country, but Ohio and Kentucky will mark the farthest east you’ve been able to buy their beers statewide. Earlier this year, they began distributing to the Greater Philadelphia Area in Pennsylvania but their beers are not available in the rest of the state.

In stores now, you’ll be able to find the aforementioned Black Butte Porter as well as Mirror Pond Pale AleInversion IPA and its spring seasonal Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale. All three beers will be available in six-packs and on tap where fine craft beer is poured.

To make sure they had enough beer for the more than 11 million future fans in Ohio and Kentucky, Deschutes recently completed an expansion to its main facility in Bend, Oregon with a total of 10 new 1,300 barrel fermentation tanks. With the addition of these tanks, the brewery now has the capability to brew more than 460,000 barrels annually.
