Red Chair NWPA

005Deschutes Brewery produces a large number of different beers. Unfortunately, they use the same cap for all of them. As a result, their Red Chair NWPA will likely be the only one reviewed here. I’m definitely the one missing out as their variety is quite compelling. Maybe I’ll find a sampler from this brewery someday. (Or maybe I’ll just add a bunch of caps to the repeats jar.)


The first thing I noticed about this NWPA (Northwest Pale Ale) was that it was much darker than I expected from a pale ale. It struck me as being much more like a red ale. This full-bodied beer was nicely hoppy. It was a bit bitter, but pleasantly so, and I could definitely tell that I was drinking alcohol. Honestly, this is everything I want from a beer.

Would I buy this beer again? Fuck yeah I would. This is one of the best beers I’ve had in a long time. Should you have it? Only if you like good beer.

I’m happy to give this beer 5/5 caps.
