Deschutes Brewery is one of my favorite craft breweries and I wish we could get it in Pennsylvania. Perhaps if their success continues that will happen one day. Currently Deschutes only distributes to my West Coast amigos and as sad as this is, I can understand. In fact, Dogfish Head recently pulled their distribution from several states in order to better provide to the other states where they do distribute.
Deschutes just announced today that they are expanding their operations. More space will be added to where their production area (more room for beer) and they are augmenting their current fermentation tanks with five new family members (more room for beer). They estimate that this addition with allow them to brew over 100,000 gallons more beer each year. There are also various green innovations they will be implementing, including a system which will reduce and reuse water by cleaning it.
There will be another phase of this project in which they’ll add even more fermentation tanks.
Please, dear Deschutes, please distribute in Pennsylvania? We’d be happy to have ya here. Congratulations to Deschutes on their success!
