Kris Kringle – Day 10

Papa Noel’s Olde Ale
“This holiday ale was brewed in the English ‘old ale’ style, a
traditional strong ale style that is sometimes called a ‘winter
warmer.’ The warmth comes from the alcoholic strength of the
beer, which weighs in at about 7.2% by volume. It is an attractive
dark copper-brown hue and is extremely full-bodied. Papa Noel’s
has a pleasing sweetness from its higher-than-normal alcoholic
content, and from its complex malt foundation.This sweetness is
balanced by a hint of roasted flavor, as well as a mellow bitterness
imparted by a generous amount of English Fuggle hops. Other
flavors in evidence are bittersweet chocolate, caramel, and toffee.
Papa Noel’s Olde Ale is the perfect brew to warm the body and
nourish the soul during the cold and wet holiday season. Cheers!”

Kris Kringle – Day 9


“Deep mahogany in color, our full-bodied winter warmer is brewed in the sprit of British winter ales. Crafted with a flurry of roasted chocolate and caramel malts, and generously hopped, it delivers a smooth finish that makes this beer the perfect cold weather companion.”

Kris Kringle – Day 8


“Brewed once a year by Left Hand Brewing to fight cabin fever, this spiced strong ale uses all natural ingredients, including crushed cinnamon, honey, chopped ginger, orange zest, cardamon & cloves. Deep red in color, this medium-bodied beer is a winter warmer – enjoy on a cold night in front of the fireplace.”

Kris Kringle – Day 3

Christmas in Placentia…
“Speaking of Jingle Bells, our winter seasonal is here. Bottles of “2 Turtle Doves”, a Belgian-style dark ale boasting 12% ABV will be available for sale in the Tasting Room starting Friday.
“2 Turtle Doves” is brewed with toasted pecans and cocoa nibs and is a rich treat that is perfect for winter (or early fall!) evenings. Flavors of caramel and nutty malt meet luscious chocolate in this what is sure to be a holiday merrymaker.
This is the second beer in our “Twelve Beers of Christmas” line that began in 2008 with Partridge in a Pear Tree. Two Turtle Doves has not officially been released yet, and won’t be on store shelves for a few weeks, so get your hands on a few bottles first – exclusively at the Tasting Room!”


Kris Kringle – Day 2

Every year, fall’s crisp, cool air signals the imminent arrival of winter. Thoughts of snow, friends and family, the holidays, and — Jubelale. Brewed with dark crystal malt creating a luscious holiday note with bountiful hops to excite your taste buds— it’s easy to see why Jubelale is the perfect complement to the season.

Every year Deschutes Brewery selects a local artist to create an image evocative of the season’s festive atmosphere. The intricate and unique art on the label enhances the Jubelale experience much like beautiful wrapping paper enhances a gift.

Central Oregon artist, Tracy Leagjeld, had fresh snow in mind when she designed the label for this year’s Jubelale.

“One of my favorite things about Central Oregon winters is how often we wake up to blue skies after a winter storm,” said Leagjeld. “In this painting, I was trying to convey the feeling of a crisp snowy morning being warmed by the sun’s rays, and how lucky we are to have the Deschutes National Forest as our backyard playground.”
