Deschutes & Hair Of The Dog’s Collage

Deschutes Brewery is working on a second Conflux Series Collaboration, this time with Hair Of The Dog.   (The first was Conflux #2, or White IPA, brewed with Boulevard Brewing.)

The beer is actually a blend of 4 beers.  Deschutes Dissident and The Stoic.  Hair of The Dog Fred & Adam.  As stated on the label “Aged in distilled spirit & wine barrels.”

Deschutes Brewery and Hair Of The Dog Brewing Company join forces to weave The Dissident and The Stoic and Fred and Adam into an artistic collage of cask-aging alchemy.  Damn, beer is fun.

Style: American Strong Ale (Barrel Aged)
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft
Arrival: May 14, 2012

Hair Of The Dog/De Proef Collab Details


As mentioned a month ago, Alan Sprints from Hair of the Dog was chosen as 2012 collaborator with Dirk Naughts and De Proef Brewing.  Details on collaboration have surfaced.

SBS Imports founder Alan Shapiro says the beer will be a blend of quintessential Hair of the Dog Fred–a Strong Ale named in honor of local beer guru Fred Eckhardt–named Flanders Fred, a reference to the Flanders Red beer style dubbed “Burgundies of Belgium.” Expect the result to pack a tart cherry sourness and bone-warming boozy heat. It’ll be perfect for aging, too. Too bad we won’t get to try it until this summer, as Sprints won’t actually brew the batch of Fred in Belgium until March.

Availability: 750ml bottles.  Michael Jackson Rare Beer Club in June, full release in July/August, 2012.
Previous collaborations include:

Brian O’Reilly of Sly Fox Brewing – Broederlijke Liefde
Terrapin Brewing — Monstre Rouge

Brian Mallet of Bell’s Brewing — Van Twee

Port/Lost Abbey — Signature Ale

Allagash —  Les Deux Brasseurs Ale

Adam From The Wood, Doggy Claws, Bourbon Fred, 11/12

Per Alan Sprints of Hair Of The Dog Brewing (Portland, OR) will have a few releases hit on 11/12/11.

Doggie Claws – Barleywine, 11.5%.  Doggie Claws is lush and tasty, nice carbonation and a firm bitterness. It will be $5 a bottle, $95 a case.

Bourbon Fred from the Wood – American Strong Ale 11.5%.  A bit of a disappointment because of the carbonation level, which is low, even by my standards. The Beer is still delicious, smooth and rich with a great bourbon flavor. It may self carbonate in the future, or maybe not. It will be $7 a bottle, $140 a case.

Adam from the Wood –  Old Ale, 10%.  Like no other, and should make you smile, he will be $15 a bottle, limit 24.

Hair Of The Dog was founded in November of 1993.
