Deschutes Brewery Green Monster Officially Unleashed
Deschutes Brewery’s Green Monster has officially been unleashed. This sour beer spent 39 long months in Oregon Pinot barrels while it metamorphosed into something delightful and delicious. Given the alchemy of this mistake turned into gold, less than 1000 cases of 22 oz bottles were produced. You can hunt down a few bottles at our pubs and tasting room NOW or take your chances finding it at a specialty bottle shop near you.

Here at Deschutes Brewery, we’re always on the lookout for a chance to create something new. That’s why, more than 3 years ago, our brewers decided to fill up some Oregon pinot barrels with a beer gone astray and infect it with Brettanomyces, and then wait for the transformation. Around the brewhouse it was known as “Green Monster,” and the name stuck. At the end of this experimentation story, you will find a monstrously fantastic, sour beer, with slight cherry and dried fruit aroma. In fact, the only scary thing about this beer is that it is SO LIMITED!
