Back by popular demand, Chainbreaker, a favorite among Deschutes drinkers for many years, will release again this Fall for a limited time. Proudly named after a local’s favorite mountain bike race in the brewery’s hometown of Bend, Oregon, Chainbreaker will make its comeback after a 4 year hiatus next month.
“Fans have been asking for its return since 2016, and the yeast, wheat and hop driven flavor profile is having a bit of a comeback as well,” said Deschutes’ Product Development Director, Veronica Vega. “It’s exciting to align the evolving flavor preference of craft beer drinkers with the return of Chainbreaker, and remembering how refreshing it can be to just get out on a bike.”
Chainbreaker is a creative amalgamation of styles, a hopped-up Belgian-style witbier brewed with orange peel for a distinct, bright citrus flavor, the traditional notes of coriander, and the familiar refreshing hop kick of an IPA.
Chainbreaker is 5.6% ABV and 40 IBUs and is currently available everywhere Deschutes is sold in 6 and 12 pack bottles and on draft through October.
