To celebrate pride and support the LGBTQIA+ community, Deschutes Brewery has released its new Bubbles & Brunch, a Bellini-inspired peach lager that tastes absolutely excellent.

Led by the brewery's Q Committee (a group of LGBTQIA+ employees who work to lead and make change in the craft beer industry for both sexual and gender minorities), Deschutes has partnered with the Sexual and Gender Minority Youth Resource Center to help raise money for LGBTQIA+ youth in Portland, which is where the company's Q Committee is hosted.
The notes of peach in the Bubbles & Brunch are spot on, as is the bubbly and carbonated feeling you might get when you drink an actual Bellini. You could easily make this a day-long or campsite beverage with it only being at 5% ABV. The cherry on top is that the can sports pride colors, showcasing that not only is the flavor a drink for everyone, but for the purpose this beer serves as well.
If you think Bubbles & Brunch sounds up your alley make sure to buy some as soon as you can, as this small batch brew is in limited supply. Grab a six-pack to go from any of the pubs or tasting rooms in both Bend and Portland.
