Collage 6-Course Beer Dinner
Friday, May 18, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
This momentous occasion celebrates the release of our collaboration beer with Hair of the Dog Brewing Company. The first beer brewed in our Conflux Series, Collage is comprised of four very distinctive brews - The Dissident, The Stoic, Fred & Adam - each 100% aged in a myriad of barrels ranging from Rye Whiskey, Cognac & Sherry to Pinot Noir, Bourbon and American Oak.
During this beer dinner, meet owners Gary Fish of Deschutes Brewery and Alan Sprints of Hair of the Dog Brewery. You will also get to ask your toughest brewing questions to Deschutes Brewmaster, Cam O'Connor, and walk away with a better knowledge of how this beer was made and conceived.
An exquisite menu has been created by Deschutes Brewery's Chefs to delight your taste buds and to pair perfectly with these "component" beers that make up Collage. We hope you can join us in our Tap Room at the Bend Pub for this once-in-a-lifetime event that will have you talking for the rest of the year!

When & Where
For Fellow Explorers Everywhere
Located in beautiful Bend, Oregon, Deschutes Brewery is in the business of daring people to expect more from their beer. That's why we started off in 1988, on the banks of the Deschutes River here in Bend, Oregon, by selling Black Butte Porter at a time when others were sure a dark beer would never catch on. Our brewers love to push the envelope, especially if it makes someone nervous. But for us, the highest praise is a raised glass and a toast of "Bravely Done!"
