    This is great news, as this one has been on my 'to try' list for about as long as I've known about Deschutes.

    Love this beer so much. I hope they do the same with Mirror Mirror.

    Hopefully that means they will also brew more, as I've never had this. It was like a whisper in the wind around here last year. I welcome this with open arms.

    Nice. Maybe I'll loosen my vice-like grip on the four bottles of the 2012 I have in the basement . . .

    OH man I wish, it's in the barrels though and will be on shelves next year (Mirror Mirror). I talked to the rep here during a tasting he hosted recently about it. I cracked my last Mirror Mirror bottle open in June and it was delicious still.

    So it's going to be more readily available? Well I don't want it then :cool:
  13. Was 2009 the last year they released Mirror Mirror? That's the only one I have or have seen around here, I believe.

    theCoder Savant (400) Minnesota Oct 24, 2011 Beer Trader

    Yes, 2009 unfortunately :( it came out just when Deschutes entered MN. I remember seeing Mirror Mirror on shelves for months, now I imagine I'll have to go on the wild goose chase to track it down when it comes out again.

    That's great news! Hopefully they import it into Utah. Deschutes is one of the brewery's that sells its beers in the Utah bottle shops. Deschutes is one of the better brewery's out there. Cheers to all of us!

    I heard this about 6 months back from a worker at the brewery... he also told me about Green monster at that time, which has helped to bridge the sour gap until 2014, highly recommend GM if you can still find it (or trade for it).

    This is great news!! Especially since they are beginning to distribute to OH in January 2014!
  24. Just picked up a bottle of GM a couple of days ago.

    And as far as Deschutes... Huzzah!

    Love this beer and glad to hear this news. There's a certain place here in Wyoming that still has quite a few bottles of the Dissident left.

    I want to say they BETTER do that with Mirror Mirror. Probably one of the most delicious and unique barleywines made.
  35. So if theres supposed to be a version this year, when is it getting released?
  36. theCoder

    theCoder Savant (400) Minnesota Oct 24, 2011 Beer Trader

    I would guess the usual release time which I believe was late summer time last time.

    theCoder Savant (400) Minnesota Oct 24, 2011 Beer Trader

    Yea I heard it was on sale. Probably be hitting MN sometime in the next couple weeks and be sold out in 30 seconds :( last time Mirror Mirror came out it was on shelves here for months not likely now. Oh well, if I miss out I miss out I don't hunt anymore not worth the time, I'll just brew more beer.

    I jumped on a bottle of this, Adam from the Wood, and few others.

    I'm hoping soon! I wish VA got Deschutes.
