Deschutes Beer-Where to get it

There is a discussion concerning the great Oregon beer maker and his product on the beer board. does anyone know where to get it at a bar locally, happy hour would even be better, so l do not have to get a case to try it.

    Many other places probably carry it in bottle, I don't think it's hard to find.

    Also no need to buy a case, you can get a mixed 6 at one of the Foodery locations, Bottle Shop on East Passyunk, Bottle Bar East in Fishtown and probably many other bottle shops. Most decent ones will stock it. Some bars do mixed 6 takeout too, Jon's on South St has a big bottle selection and does this.

        If you decide on a happy hour - I'd love to catch up.

        I don't know if you are in center city or the suburbs, but Blue Dog Pub in Lansdale had the Deschutes mirror pond (pale ale) on draft.

          Barryg, this is an amazing website, thank you! I have been looking for the Chainbreaker White IPA since our trip to Oregon 2 years ago.

            FYI I just had this at Jose Pistola's a couple days ago.

        2. I'd like to also recommend Hawthorne's near Bella Vista Distributors. They have a very decent bottle selection and some of their prices are better than the Foodery's.

          I know Hawthorne's recently had some bottles of Deschutes smoked porter collaboration with Great Lakes - I'd call to see if they still carry that or anything else.

          1. I saw it at the Pub on Passyunk East, $5.50/pint, happy hour is half price. Check Philly Tap Finder.

            1. Saw bottles of Black Butte Porter last night at Iron Abbey in Horsham, where, I believe, there is a happy hour every day.

                Iron Abbey's hippy hour is 4-7 every S-R, 4-6 Friday and Saturday, discounted beer and food specials. Well worth the price of admission. And they have more parking across the street so it is more convenient.

              2. Will be at Vargas for happy hour today, Monday 8/26 with another hound, all welcome.

                1. This may come as a shock, but the internet sometimes lies.

                  Phillytapfinder let us down today at Varga. They did not have any Deschutes on tap and only had 2 bottles available - both at 18oz and priced $18 and $28.

                  They did have a Fresh Squeezed IPA by Deschutes and it was delicious.

                  1. Here is a list of taps and bottles of various Deschutes beers being served in or near center city.

                      I'm coming from NY for a very short stay next week and I don't know how my husband and I are going to be able to drink all the beers I found in Philly from two of our west coast favorites, Deschutes and Russian River! So happy I found this thread. I though we were SOL here on the east coast.

                      1. re: i_eat_a_lot_of_ice_cream

                        I am sure you will not be disappointed in the beers available in Philadelphia wether it be local craft brew or beers of the nation or world. Brewing is a long standing (18th century) enterprise in our fair city as is the consumption of same.

                    2. Stateside on East Passyunk currently has Deschutes, 2 in bottles and 1 tap.

                      1. Flying Pig in Malvern had it on tap today.

                        1. Deschutes is doing tastings all over the city this week:


                          1. Deschutes had tastings at The Beer Store, Southampton, PA this past weekend, so I am sure they carry it. I also saw one bottle in the beer case at the new C.J.'s Doghouse, attached to Towamencin Beverage, close to the Lansdale Exit of the N.E. Extension. It's a new place that just opened - they offer several varieties of beer on tap, which can be purchased in Growlers, as well as single bottles of domestic and imported beer. They also serve hot dogs with lots of topping choices as well as beer by the glass and are open 'til 8:30 each evening. I stopped by yesterday to check them out and noticed they carried at least one variety of Deschutes. I am not a beer drinker, but like Woodchuck Cider as well as the Lambic flavored, Belgian beers. I picked up a Lambic Cassis yesterday as well as a Trappist Belgian beer for a friend of mine who is Dutch. Both places have a Facebook page if you would like more information.
