Bend Based Deschutes Brewery Expands Into the Texas Market

(March 24, 2008 – Bend, OR) – Deschutes Brewery has recently announced plans to expand its distribution and sales into Texas, the thirteenth state to offer Deschutes brews. Deschutes Brewery’s flagship beers, Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Black Butte Porter, will be available on draft at select establishments in Austin beginning Monday, March 24th; beer will be available in the Dallas area as of May 1st.

Black Butte Porter, the number one selling craft porter in the country, was first brewed in 1988 and has become Deschutes Brewery’s flagship label. With the rich and distinctive flavor of chocolate and crystal malts, this porter has developed a loyal and passionate following. Deschutes Brewery’s other flagship beer, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, became a year-round offering in 1996 and uses generous quantities of Cascade hops, offering a lush floral aroma with a balanced malt body.

Look for Black Butte Porter and Mirror Pond Pale Ale on tap at select Austin establishments including: Billy's, Trudy's on 30th, Crown and Anchor, Opal Divines on 6th, Little Woodrow's on 6th and Draught Horse.

Lee, that's good news for you all. Deschutes makes solid beers, from the infamous Abyss down to more broadly accessible stuff like Mirror Pond.

Are they going to send bottles to Texas also? Keep your eye out for Hop Trip, it's one of my favorite fresh-hop beers.

They're going to open a pub/brewery in NW Portland in about six weeks, we're excited about that.

Ha Ha, I just noticed that their press release called the Draught House the Draught Horse. Same problem I have remembering the name!

I used to spend summers in Hood River and would bring cases of Black Butte home with me. My favorite beer on earth.
