Dec 08, 2013 Winter Brews As the days get ever shorter and the nights increasing longer and colder, it's the ideal time to enjoy a few limited release winter brews. These beers are typically more hearty, darker and higher in alcohol. There are few better ways to stay warm this winter. One of Towneship's favorite local Northwest breweries is the Black Raven Brewing Co. With seasonal beers like Gunpowder Plot Nitro Porter, Grandfather Raven Imperial Stout and Possum Claus Bourbon Pecan Porter how can you go wrong? The house beer here at Towneship is Deschutes. For a limited time our preferred potent potable is celebrating its 25th year with a special release of Black Butte—the breweries flagship porter. Get out there and get some while you can.
