    Just wanted folks to know that both bottles of Deschutes Murder in the Rye I picked up from the brewery a few months back were both infected and it's not a sour stout. Pretty bummed; I bet it would have been a stellar beer otherwise.

    Unless they have multiple batches buyers beware!

    Bottle date 12/16/15

    Did you contact the brewery? They might not be aware.

    Haven't...figured it was bottled so long ago they have to know by now as long as anyone in Bend actually drinks the beers, but it's a good idea! I'll email em.

    Always a good idea to notify the brewery of infected beer. If nothing else, they may refund and/or send you a shirt/glass/etc

    I'll always take some free schwag from a good brewery.

    I had a bottle pour at the brewery and it was mega lacto infected. Major sour cherry thing going on.

    Emailed em tonight. I love their beers but how could they serve it on tap and know that it's that off?

    For the record, it wasn't on tap, someone purchased and then opened a bottle of it there.

    Ah...a rep from the brewery sent me a really nice long email about the beer and how good it was fresh. They offered a refund, which I never really expected (I figure it's always a crapshoot with BA beers and keepers beware) but it was great to see such great customer service from a brewery I love. Just makes you want to come back for more!
