Deschutes Brewery Base Camp

After an incredible week at the Craft Brewers Conference in San Francisco and having the opportunity to hang out with the Deschutes Brewery crew at a few of their Deschutes Brewery Base Camp Week – San Francisco events, we are excited to announce their events for Deschutes Base Came Week – Phoenix, which we are wishing we could attend, but sadly that won’t be the case. If you are in the area, get there and try some of their incredible beers!

DESCHUTES BREWERY BASE CAMP – Phoenix, Arizona

Tuesday April 5

  • Beer Tasting at Total Wine & More in Tempe (2-5pm)
    Here’s your chance to discover your favorite Deschutes Brewery beer, and maybe even take some home to further your exploration. We’ll be pouring several of the beers we have for sale in the store.
  • Specialty Reserve Series Beer Tasting at Taste of Tops (5:30-8pm)
    Not only will the giant Deschutes Brewery barrel on wheels, Woody, be here, but you should be too! We’ll be pouring the Lost Barrels of Mirror Mirror (yes, they were really lost and rediscovered in the brewery’s warehouse) and The Abyss ’08 – finely aged for your drinking pleasure. This is a rare chance to try some rare beers from Oregon’s Deschutes Brewery. Pair your beer with some hand-rolled cigars and view the mad skills of a visiting professional cigar roller.
  • Specialty Reserve Series Beer Tasting at Robbie Fox’s (7-10pm)
    We’ll have some of Deschutes Brewery’s most popular beers – Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Black Butte Porter and Inversion IPA – for you to try at this event, along with the latest vintage of The Abyss. Woody, the brewery’s giant traveling beer barrel, will be rolling in around 8 p.m. Pair your beer with some hand-rolled cigars and view the mad skills of a visiting professional cigar roller.

Wednesday April 6

  • Beer Tasting at Total Wine & More in Glendale (1:30-4:30pm)
    Here’s your chance to discover your favorite Deschutes Brewery beer, and maybe even take some home to further your exploration. We’ll be pouring several of the beers we have for sale in the store.

Thursday April 7

  • Whole Foods
    In-Store Beer Tasting (2-5pm) | Tasting and Small Plate Dinner (6-8pm) $10

    Is there really anything better than working a little bit of beer tasting into your grocery shopping trip? Deschutes Brewery will be at Whole Foods with samples of its lineup of craft brews in the afternoon, and a small plate pairing dinner in the early evening. The special brews we’ll be pouring include The Abyss ’10 and Jubel 2010, which is only released once every 10 years.
  • Specialty Beer Tasting at Papago Brewing (7-10pm)
    Deschutes Brewery’s Reserve Series beers are always a little hard to find, but none more so than The Dissident ‘10 which had an extremely limited release. We’ll also be pouring the brewery’s Black Butte XXI, the brewery’s 21st anniversary beer, which is full of chocolaty goodness. A few bottles of Jubel 2010, The Abyss ’07 & ’08 will also be cracked open.

Friday April 8

  • Diamondbacks Opening Day Promotion at Coach & Willies (12-5:30pm)
    Beer and baseball – great American traditions! Celebrate the kickoff of the Diamondbacks’ 2011 season with Deschutes Brewery. We’re planning a tailgate party near Chase Field with our giant barrel, Woody, so keep an eye out for him! Follow him on Twitter to find out where we are! They’ll be pouring Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Black Butte Porter inside the stadium, and just down the street at Coach & Willies and Alice Cooperstown.
  • Portland’s Restaurant & Wine Bar (6-8pm)
    We’ll be pouring one of the brewery’s Reserve Series beers, The Abyss ’10, which is a dark and mysterious imperial stout that is ranked one of the Best Beers on Planet Earth by BeerAdvocate.
  • Carly’s Bistro (8:30-9:30pm)
    Don’t miss this second opportunity to taste Deschutes Brewery’s The Abyss ’07 and ’08 side-by-side. This imperial stout gets better and better with age, so tasting these two divine liquids at the same time may just send us over the edge. We’ll also be pouring the Jubel 2010, released just once a decade.
  • The Lost Leaf (9:30-11pm)
    Last Call! This is your final chance to savor Deschutes Brewery’s The Abyss ’07 and ’08 side-by-side and Jubel 2010 in Arizona before we pack up and head to Southern California.

Saturday April 9

  • Oyster Racing Series (Heritage & Science Park)
    Deschutes Brewery celebrates the adventurer in everyone, and nothing brings out that spirit better than the Oyster Race Series. That’s why Deschutes is the official beer sponsor of the event series, and is proud to help bring this race to Phoenix for the first time on April 8. The Deschutes giant wooden barrel, aka Woody, will be on hand to encourage participants with his rolling coolness, and perhaps even serve a few celebratory brews as the day wears on. Good luck everyone, and Bravely Done to those who end up conquering the course. Dok and Gal, who captivate audiences with their “verbal flow”, will be performing in the afternoon to add to the festivities.
