Deschutes Jubelale 2014Deschutes Jubelale – Winter Ale

A wee bit early to announce a winter beer? Deschutes Brewery couldn’t wait to share the inner and outer beauty of its 2014 Jubelale. Inside the bottle, fans will find the flavor they’ve come to know that hearkens in the cooler months of fall: layered flavors of warm spiciness, dried fruit and a hoppy finish. Outside the bottle, this year’s packaging features original fiber artwork from Bend, Oregon’s Lubbesmeyer Studio showing two people sledding in a playful winter landscape. The first beer that the brewery ever bottled, 2014 marks the 27th bottling of Jubelale.
