Deschutes Jubelale is now in it’s 29th year of bottling, placing this beer among the longest running seasonals in America.
Each year is a little different from the last. Brewmaster Veronica Vega mentions that fact along makes Deschutes Jubelale one of the most talked about seasonals. This winter warmer uses EKG hops, which lend the beer spicy and herbal notes.
This year’s artwork was created by Bend, Oregon based artist Karen Ruane. The piece is titled “First Snow”, created from a process called marbeling. The by floating paint into water or some other viscous liquid, you mimic the designs found in stone and marble.
“With this piece I wanted to capture the change in the air, the smells, the excitement and festive atmosphere around the anticipation of playing in the first snow of the season. I absolutely love the packaging, and am so honored to have my artwork featured on it. I think the designers did a wonderful job showcasing the art of marbling and I hope that this rather rare art form is able to get a little attention from this year’s Jubelale.” – Karen Ruane, Artist.
