Each year, Deschutes Brewery (Bend, OR) changes up the artwork for Jubelale, a winter release. It might be a little early to think about the release, but I’m sure you can enjoy the artwork until then. There is a lot of lore surrounding the artwork on the label of Jubelale. Local Oregon legend suggests that if the label suggests that snow on the label predicts snow for Mt. Bachelor and it’s nearby town. Judging by 2013, that looks like a possibility.
A dark, malty celebration ale with layered flavors and beautifully balanced hopping. Jubelale pours deep garnet in color, medium bodied, with notes of chicory, earth, spice and fruit. To beer lovers, it’s like Yule fire and family.
