Deschutes Brewery turned 30 this year, and to commemorate it released the most complex yet anniversary beer in its “Black Butte X” series, Black Butte XXX — a bottle of which I received from the brewery yesterday: I say “most complex” because it is 100% barrel aged, for which the …

Jon and I attended the 2018 Homebrew Con a few weeks ago. What a fabulous event to have to bring together beer geeks with industry professionals and other fellow enthusiasts for three days of fun, demonstrations, sessions, parties and of course homemade fermented beverages.
