Deschutes "Jubelale"

Top 10 Winter Beers

The 2012 Deschutes Jubelale label was created by artist Kaycee Anseth Townsend


Deschutes "Jubelale"
Winter Warmer Ale - Oregon / October-December
6.7 per cent ABV

This winter warmer has been helping us get through the onslaught of the coldest season for 25 years. The brewery's dedication to art is evident, as it has selected a local artist each year to illustrate the label. The 2012 version features a complex collage by Bend, Oregon, artist Kaycee Anseth Townsend, which was appropriately made entirely from pieces of Jubelale labels from the previous 24 years. Expect an earthy aroma, nut brown hue and a comingling of West Coast hops, brown sugar, candied dark fruits, baking spices and a good dose of malty flavors. The very first beer to ever be bottled by the brewery, this beer's 6.7 per cent ABV will help warm you as the nippy chill of winter approaches.

Price: $1.50 / 12 oz.
