Deschutes' Red Chair again named 'World's Best Beer'

While I don't know about "world's best beer", it's damned tasty, and I'm looking forward to seeing it back on tap ASAP.

Perhaps that's the difference between a blind taste test and a biased ranking heavily based on hype?

Not hating on Pliny, nor have I had anything from Deschutes outside of Black Butte which I got on a swap (and loved), but I'm just saying.

Recalling the blind tasting of various Belgians that's been floating around that ranked Westy 12 relatively low among the rest.

If anyone who doesn't get a chance to grab Deschutes brew often I'd go straight for the Obsidian Stout the first chance you get. I love stouts and have tasted a ton of them, Obsidian is amazing. You can actually taste the layers unfolding in every sip. Once you get past the coffee and chocolates expected in a stout you get on to the herbal, evergreen, and slight citrus from the hops... I need to get to the store!

^true

the clone from CYBI is spot on. I've brewed it back to back already. Put in on Nitro this time - VERY nice.

You can... Amen! Pliny is a good IPA but I'd take a Manny's Pale Ale over it any day of the week. If you ever get to Seattle GO TO GEORGETOWN BREWERY. Amazing beers, I just wish they'd bottle em.

Question- does anyone have any other Deschutes recommendations? I'll be visiting my folks in Idaho next week, and plan on stocking up on PNW stuff I can't normally get here (Deschutes, Ninkasi, that kind of stuff) while I'm there. Black Butte is in my list, the Abyss or Obsidian if I can find them. Just don't know exactly what their distribution is (I know their stuff is available in Idaho, just don't know if all of their stuff is), or when their windows are.

In my opinion every one of the Deschutes beers is excellent. Get whatever you can and I believe you will enjoy it. I have found them on sale at Albertsons supermarkets in Coeur d'Alene, so you might check the store where you are.
