I had no idea until recently, when the Brewers Association released their annual report on the Top 50 Craft Breweries by Sales Volume that Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery made so much beer. They’re fifth on the BA list, which means they make a lot of beer. I always figured they must be somewhat sizeable based on their distribution, but I had no idea they were one of the top producers of craft beer in the country. But knowing how big they are, it makes sense that they’re rolling into town for a week as part of their Base Camp tour.
Deschutes Brewery is bringing Woody and will be spending some time here in San Diego over the next few days. They have ten events lined up over five days starting Tuesday when they’ll be at Toronado. Throughout the week they’ll be pouring a great lineup of beers including various vintages of The Abyss their barrel-aged Imperial Stout, Jubel 2010 (released once every ten years) and plenty of others at bars and restaurants including a two year vertical of The Abyss at Olive Tree Market, a beer pairing dinner at Churchill’s Pub and Grille, a Bourbon Beers and BBQ at Downtown Johnny Brown’s and more. Deschutes brewer Jake Harper will also be at many of the events .
