The Brew (April 2009)
Cinder Cone Red
The arrival of the seasonal Cinder Cone Red from Deschutes Brewery is one of the first signs of spring in Bend, Ore. Initially available only from the tap at the Deschutes Brewery & Public in downtown Bend, Cinder Cone Red’s local fans demanded that it be bottled. In 2003, the brewery complied, making it available from March to May in six- and 12-packs. The beer is still available for sale on draft for pubs and restaurants throughout the western United States.

Brooklyn Local 2
Brooklyn Brewery in Brooklyn, N.Y. has rolled out its latest beer, Local 2, an extension of the brewery’s Brooklyn Local 750-mililiter series. This 100 percent bottle-conditioned, Belgian-inspired beer is darker than Brooklyn Local 1 and features fruit, caramel and chocolate flavors accented by wildflower honey. Brooklyn Local 2 combines European malts and hops, Belgian dark sugar and raw wildflower honey from a farm in Upstate New York.
