CRAB FEST
THE
MOUNTAIN ROOM
AT
DESCHUTES BREWERY
You won’t have any reason to be crabby if you attend
this feast - how could you be when dining on all
things crab? Crab appetizers and the famous crab boil
with lots of delicious crab, Andouille sausage, corn
& shrimp - you’ll eat like a king or queen! Enjoy the
bounty of the sea, along with tasty Deschutes beers
that pair wonderfully with the crab
and dessert.
$85/PERSON includes food, beer,
gratuity and all the crab you can eat!

ZWICKELMANIA!
Need a reason to check out our Bend
Brewing Facility and sample some FRESH
beer straight from a zwickel on the cellar
room floor? Then join us for Zwickelmania
2015! Hosted by the Oregon Brewers Guild
(OBG), Zwickelmania is a free statewide event
that offers craft beer fans a chance to tour the
breweries of Oregon (and we have a ton), meet the brewers
and sample their favorite beers. This is also the ONLY day that our
Portland Pub offers tours of its beautiful brewhouse in the Pearl District. Don’t miss your chance to chat with brewers and enjoy some
tasty specialty beer at both locations.

Hop Henge Experimental IPA
9.5% Alc. by Vol. / 90 IBUs
Close your eyes and
picture Jubelale in
a cape, like a super
hero! Or better yet,
picture Jubelale aging
for a year in Pinot Noir
and new Oregon Oak
Barrels giving the beer
hints of spice, dried fruit, oak, caramel, and
vanilla. Then add a higher alcohol kick that will
warm your belly for the rest of winter. This is
what we are calling Jubel 2015! We originally
planned this “super” version of Jubelale as a
once-a-decade-ale to be released in 2000, 2010
and 2020, but we just couldn’t wait another five
years so we’re releasing it now! Enjoy this beer
with friends and family fireside in France (gettin’
crazy with alliteration and the letter “F”), or save
a few bottles for comparison with the 2020
version. Either way, this beer will be your new
forever favorite (there’s that alliteration again).
What do you get
when you take the
local’s favorite
beer, Bachelor
Bitter, and age it in
Pinot, Bourbon and
Sherry Barrels?
You get something
Extra, Extra Special: The Specialist. This
“beefed-up” ESB has earthy, fruity, bourbon,
caramel, and vanilla flavors and aromas
from Pale, Crystal and wheat malts balanced
against Nugget, Willamette and EKG hops.
Don’t let the name “bitter” confuse you, as
this style of beer couldn’t be further from a
Hoppy, Bitter IPA, but more likely served at
a traditional English pub. Since this beer is
so special, you can only find it in 22 ounce
bottles at our pubs and brewery. Grab a
bottle if you are local or phone a friend in
Oregon. You don’t want to miss out on this
one!

ST. PATRICK’S
DAY DASH
Jubel 2015 is one of my favorite strong ales,
and pairs amazingly with hearty foods that warm
the body and soul. This barrel-aged beauty has a
big malt profile and some alcohol heat with flavors
of raisin, stone fruits, and oak, and therefore, is a
great beer to enjoy with rich, heavier foods.

MEAT PAIRINGS My recommended food parings
Chef Jeff Usinowicz talks about
perfect pairings with our next Reserve
Series Beer, Jubel 2015
are seared duck breast, duck confit, and gamey
meats such as venison and lamb.
CHEESE & SWEETS PAIRINGS I also encourage
you to try goat and sheep’s milk cheeses with
the Jubel 2015 and on the sweeter side, I think
it would pair beautifully with chocolate desserts,
oatmeal raisin cookies, or date cake with a nutmeg
scented whipped cream.
PUB PAIRINGS If you find yourself at one of our
pubs when Jubel 2015 is on tap, be sure to order
it with the braised lamb shank at our Portland Pub
and our Elk Meatloaf in Bend. Eat, drink and be
well. Cheers!
With 19+ Deschutes brews on tap at our
Bend and Portland Pubs, these special
brews are always changing and are in

Deschutes Brewery and Mt. Bachelor Rotary Club join forces once
again for this fabulously fun event. The dash begins and ends
at our Bend Pub so be sure to come prepared for some tasty
snacks and killer beer (Obsidian Stout on Nitro is recommended).

The McDowell Mountain Music Festival,
Arizona’s musical and cultural destination, is celebrating its 12th year since its

Widespread Panic, Passion Pit, Trombone Shorty, Trampled by
Turtles, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and more, will entertain
you while you sip on a tasty Deschutes beer, and proceeds
from the festival will benefit Phoenix Children’s Hospital
Foundation and UMOM New Day Center.
Hop on the bus to Mt. Bachelor for the ride of your life! Enjoy a day of skiing or snowboarding on the
mountain, transportation to and from Bend (from Portland), beverage at the lodge, and dinner and
beer at the Deschutes Brewery Public House on Bond Street. All of this for only $109 per person!
