Deschutes Zarabanda Bottles This Fall

Deschutes Zarabanda

Deschutes Brewery’s (Bend, OR) Zarabanda will find its way into bottles this fall. Zarabanda is a chef driven saison, meant to be paired with food. The list of ingredients include lemon verbena, pink peppercorn, sumac (a tart spice), and dried lime. Spicy saisons offset food flavors beautifully.

We looked to acclaimed Chef Joe Andres to help us create a Spanish take on the farmhouse style saison. The addition of Lemon Verbena, pink peppercorn, sumac, and dried lime infuse the chef’s distinctive flavors into the brew – an ale purposefully crafted to compliment all your culinary endeavors. Or be savored all by itself. 

Chef Jose Andres worked with Deschutes on this creation, debuting it at Aspen Food & Wine in June. Zarabanda will be available in 22oz bottles.

Style: Saison (w/ Pink Peppercorn, Sumac, Lemon Verbena, Dried Lime)
Available: Draft (Previously), 22oz Bottles soon.
