BUZZSAW BROWN KICKS OFF 2008 SEASONAL LINE UP FOR DESCHUTES BREWERY
(December 21, 2007 – Bend, OR) Deschutes Brewerys latest seasonal release, Buzzsaw Brown, honors the historic heritage of their hometown Bend, Oregon, when workers spent long, hard days in the sawmills on the banks of the Deschutes River.
After a successful introduction into the seasonal rotation two years ago, Buzzsaw Browns release has been moved from early spring to late winter. This remarkable brown ale is chestnut in color with a medium body and satisfying mouthfeel. With a slightly sweet, biscuity flavor and mellow hop profile, Buzzsaw Brown is an easy drinking beer that is refreshing even after the hardest days work.
Buzzsaw Brown is one of my favorite beers, says Deschutes Brewery Brewmaster Larry Sidor. The unique combination of European and American malts makes it a very food friendly beer that pairs well with a wide variety of flavors.
Deschutes Brewery and Public House Head Chef Matt Neltner recommends pairing Buzzsaw Brown with winter squash and pumpkin flavors, especially seasonal soups or pies, to bring out the beers sweet and light flavor profile.
Buzzsaw Brown will be available in 6-packs, 12-packs and on draft in 12 western states from January through March. Suggested retail for six-packs is $ 7.00 – 9.00.
