I saw this at the store today and picked up a 22 oz-er, but at 11.99 a bottle I was reluctant to get a second one. But of course now I want to drink the one I got rather than saving it for next January like the label suggests.

The only info I found online makes this sounds like a Jubelale that has been partially freeze-distilled or something (the story is someone stole a keg of Jubelale and couldn't carry it off so they left it in the snow, and then the Deschutes guys drank the half-frozen brew and loved it).

I love Jubelale, so I'm thinking I'll love this. Maybe I'll drink it and if I like it, go back for more and save those till next year.

I've had it on tap several times this year and love it. I wouldn't hesitate to buy a whole case of bombers and cellar them.

Good to know, thanks... I'm going to drink it this weekend and probably go back for more to save.

Did they bully you and take your property and build their brewery on it?

No, I worked for Gary for over 6 years. Every brewer that I know that left Deschutes feels the same way as I do about the place.

I am not going to comment on their beer as I still have some friends there brewing it and they are great at what they do.

Just saying, I've given enough to Deschutes and being in Bend, I have A LOT of options when it comes to good beer.

(That reads like I was a brewer at Deschutes. I was not a brewer. Don't want to mislead. I'm still a noob to the brewing gig.)

Well I grew up in the Bend area, have never worked for Deschutes, and will continue to give them my business. Case in point, I went into a store a few hours ago and bought a couple bottles of Jubel 2010.

I would like to know what your experiences are with them. Please PM me about it if you don't want to air out the dirty laundry in public. I have no affiliation with them and don't know anyone there personally, but have always been treated well at the brewery and brewpubs.

I picked up a bomber last week and wasn't terribly impressed. It was okay, but nothing amazing. I don't think I am curious enough to spend another 12 bucks to cellar it for a year or so....
After I finished it all I could think was that 12 bucks could have bought a six pack of mirror pond and a bomber of arrogant bastard with some change left in my wallet.

I have been drinking it on Tap for the past week or so, now the pub is out. I liked the beer and noticed it got better as it warmed up.

I wish we could get the 22 oz in Texas, I would buy some.
