In other words, this beer is going to be more complex than my last geometry assignment. The slow working, wild yeast forced the brewery to go to great pains to bring the beer to life. A slow fermentation process in oak barrels stretched out to 18 months and forced the brewery to delay its release. It was a somewhat risky enterprise to bring a wild yeast strain into the brewery's controlled environment, which meant The Dissident had to be fermented in isolation from the rest of the beers. Deschutes had to bring in a second bottling line for the beer to keep the wild yeast off the brewery's machinery.
With this kind of loner existence, it's no wonder they call it The Dissident.
The brew will be available in 22 oz. bottles ($9.99) and on tap at select locations beginning September 1.
