My sister-in-law and her fiancee drive down from Yakima over the last couple days and stopped at the Deschutes brewery in Bend. They were nice enough to call and take orders, so I had them pick up a case of Twilight, a summer seasonal brew which I've not had before. True to form, Deschutes has not let me down. This is a somewhat lighter beer than their others, but eminently drinkable and refreshing. I was a little impatient and drank mine before it had a chance to adequately chill, but enjoyed it anyway.

I'd move to Bend just for that Brewery. Twilight is good and drinkable.

Had the Unibroue Edition 2005 for the first time on Sunday. Bliss, I tell you.

Have you also had the 2004? I prefer it.

I'd also move to Bend, but not just for the beer. I love that area of Oregon. I should look for jobs there...

I wasn't crazy about the sample I had. Still have the Terrible to try, though.

I don't remember why. I told Ken in a PM - maybe he knows?
It certainly wasn't for lack of alcohol content.

Still love the Trois Pistoles and La Fin du Monde, though.

Lemme look it up...

Nope, you didn't say anything but that it wasn't to your liking.

Now, Peter, you said the 2005 was not as good as 2004. But Tom liked it. Now I'm all confused, and I'll just have to go buy some. Sigh...

That it is. I'll grab some as soon as I run out of the rest of the beer I bought by accident.

(hey, they've got 4 packs! Cool!)

I found them similarly excellent, but did not taste them side-by-side.
