Deschutes Goes to Missouri?

Just more proof that beer is a friendly beverage.


What is a "collaboration beer" exactly? We weren't quite sure until we learned more about the tag-team project Deschutes Brewery is engaging in with Kansas City's Boulevard Brewing company. It appears that Bend's largest brewery is teaming up with the Missouri-based craft brewer to create a white IPA, taking advantage of Boulevard's known ability to create quality Belgian-style beers. The beer, the product of a friendship between Deschutes brewmaster Larry Sidor and Boulevard's Steven Pauwels, will be brewed both in Bend and in Kansas City and released this summer. It will be interesting to see how the two breweries' creations turn out, given that they're separated by some 1,600 miles, but we have to say we fully support the collaborative brewing effort. Just more proof that beer is a friendly beverage.
