You know there has to be an inevitable beer post from time to time, right? This week Deschutes Brewery is releasing
their much-talked-about collaboration beer with Portland’s Hair of the Dog, which they’re calling The Stoic: a “Belgian Quad” style of beer that is 11% alcohol by volume, brewed with pomegranate molasses, and aged in rye whiskey and Pinot wine barrels. It’s a beer geek’s beer.
Tomorrow (Tuesday the 16th) Deschutes is releasing this beer at the pub where you can purchase bottles (no doubt at least $12), drink the beer, and enjoy a “Stoic inspired specials menu”. Usually these type of releases kick off at 5pm (though they don’t have it listed on their Events page directly) so that’s probably a safe bet.
Update: Even beer geeks like myself get confused from time to time. The Stoic itself is not part of the Hair of the Dog collaboration, see comments below.
