Wed 10/5: Deschutes Reserve Night, 6pm

5 Oct

Wednesday is ripe with opportunity. Our Deschutes Reserve Night is merely a veil to help out our good pals at United Way Pierce County…and enjoy delicious rarities. $5 gets you an entry to win a complete Deschutes Brewing Longboard (trucks and wheels included), with ALL proceeds going to benefit The United Way of Pierce County. You can enter as often as you like, and you need NOT be present to win.


There will be a ton of schwag for those in attendance, with more soo-prize prizes to be had. And why call it Reserve Night? Here’s the lineup:

2010 The Dissident; The Dissident is an Oud Bruin, a distinctive Flanders-style sour brown ale, with a fruity aroma and flavor. Deschutes first and only wild yeast beer, they use Brettanomyces to give this beer its characteristic sour taste. Their stiffest brewing challenge, it must be fermented in isolation from all other beers for a full 18 months, partly in pinot and cabernet barrels. Aged 1 year in our own cellar for your enjoyment. Approx 235 kegs produced. Unavailable.

2010 The Abyss; A deep, dark Imperial Stout. Hints of molasses & licorice. As for the great “drink it now or let it age” debate, we stand clearly on the fence. Distinct and delicious, the flavors meld and fuse into an entirely different beer with time. Aged in the TRH Cellar for over 10 months for you to decide. This vintage unavailable.

Hop Trip; Each year around Labor Day, the Deschutes brewers hightail it over the pass to Doug Weather’s hop fields near Salem for the hop harvest. After bagging these aromatic jewels, they hustle back & toss them into the brew kettles within four hours of picking. The reward: a pale ale with a uniquely bright citrus punch and fall spice. Limited release.

Black Butte XXIII; The 23rd Anniversary Beer. With orange zest from Spanish (Seville) Oranges, chocolate nibs from the artisanal alchemists at Theo, & Pasilla Negro chiles. Quantities are limited (only 400 kegs produced) and coveted.

Kegs get tapped at 6pm! Come out and buy a chance for 4-wheeled greatness, and know you did it for a good cause! Good times shall ensue…


JubelAle Night Tonight

24 Mar

Tonight (WED MAR 24) at The Red Hot we welcome our pals from Deschutes Brewing as we sample their Jubel wares 3 different ways: 2008 JubelAle, 2009 JubelAle, and the new Jubel 2010 (this is the same recipe as 2000’s awesome ‘Super Jubel’, but was aged in pinot noir barrels for 13-months before the release), a big mamma-jamma weighing in at 10% and sure to help you bid winter a big farewell. Only 500 barrels of this beauty were made, so try it while you can. You can try a 4oz’er of all 3 beers together for $6. Brewery schwag and good times will ensue, tapping is at 6pm!

Beat the Heat With Woody

28 Jul

Woody is a travelling tavern on wheels. It’s a giant wooden keg that opens up into a tavern, complete with stereo and disco ball.

Woody is from our pals at Deschutes Brewing. He’s in Tacoma today rolling around, and will be making a full-fledge stop at The Red Hot Wednesday Night @ 7pm until close. We’ll be pouring a ‘heat-friendly’ batch of beers on tap in the outdoor beer garden out of Woody: Deschutes Red Chair IPA (from Deschutes Bond Series of beers), Green Lakes Organic Amber, Twilight Ale, & Black Butte Porter. There may even be some surprise handles. All Deschutes handles are on special. The best part is we reworked the beer garden so it’s all in the shade. Hell. Yes. We’ll be on our “BBQ Menu” for the night due to increased capacity, but at least it’s easier on your purse strings…and your hot ass living room. We’re giving away shirts, hats, growlers, glasses, and even a Deschutes Skate deck.

It’s gonna be a damn good time!
