Deschutes Brewery’s Jubel 2010

Beginning in February, the Jubel 2010 Reserve Series from Deschutes Brewery is available. The 11 percent ABV “Super Jubel” was created when a burglar dropped a keg of Jubelale outside to freeze in the winter’s sub-zero temperatures; when it was discovered, more than half the liquid had frozen and the remaining beer was very cold and highly concentrated. It is available on tap and in bottles in the 14 states were Deschutes is sold.
