Deschutes Brewing Co – Red Chair Northwest Pale A seasonal beer, usually available Jan – May, it has an ABV of 6.2% and an IBUs 60. For those of you who are counting, it’s 192 Calories per 12 oz serving. The citrus punch of a big IPA, minus the one-dimensional hop sledgehammer. Seven select European and domestic malts round out the edges for a complex, copper-colored brew.
The brewery makes several “Pub Recipe” recommendations, we have included our favorite, it took us a little longer to make it ‘cause we killed a 6pk making it.
