Deschutes in Philly

MOREKASHA Jun 27, 2013 12:38 PM

Just heard the news. Philly is one lucky town. Road trip!

    I read something about Walmart carrying Deschutes. Anyone seen it there?

      Good news as the Boston market can't be far behind...

        Well I hope that means NYC too. I've been to their pub in PDX a couple times and love their beer. The BB Porter is great.

        Every Deschutes beer I have had has been great. Philly is certainly a lucky place for this.

            I asked you not to tell me that. In NYC, grown men are weeping.

              You probably don't want to know, but the HH price was $2.75/pint!

              Philly is only an hour away!

                  You couldn't find it for that price in Bend, OR. How do they do it?

                    That was just the happy hour price, $5.50 was the regular.

                    When it comes to Deschutes, Mirror Pond is just the tip of the iceberg.

                      That is what I hear and waiting for the others! Apparently after a few kegs of Mirror Pond are kicked the others get delivered to Philly. Kind of test run.

                        Black Butte Porter is the flagship beer from Deschutes here in Oregon. I am sure if you are getting Mirror Pond then Black Butte is not far behind.

                        In all honesty, I have never had a Deschutes beer that I did not like. They have some great things on tap in their pubs in Portland and Bend.

                          Black Butte and Chainbreaker White IPA have arrived.

                            Those are both fantastic beers. Enjoy them.
