After announcing plans to expand distribution into the greater Philadelphia area in June, Deschutes Brewery will finally make their official arrival next month. Running from November 4-9, the Deschutes Base Camp will hit dozens of the area’s best beer bars and restaurants to celebrate the official planting of the brewery’s flag in Philly.
Centered on their flagship Mirror Pond Pale Ale, each event will feature a variety of Deschutes brews, including selections from the brewery’s limited Bond Street and Reserve series’. Brewers and reps will also be on hand direct from Oregon to chat with attendees and enjoy beers from one of the country’s most popular and longest running craft breweries (since 1988).
In addition to the events listed below, over 10 meet and greets will go down over the course of Base Camp week. Follow @DeschutesBeer on Twitter and use the hashtag #BeerBaseCamp to get involved on social media. See the full details here.
