Loving Deuane

Let me take a moment to express my thanks to all of our friends and family for coming out to Bullfrog Brewery for the debut of Deuane (the beer), and also to Terry for making it and Cori for being such an excellent waitress during all of our shenanigans! I’m sitting here right now enjoying another glass, along with the lunch special – Deuane (the sandwich) along with a glass of Deuane.

So, yes, we’re loving Deuane. And we’re loving Terry for brewing this magnificent beer. Described as a double nitro IPA, Deuane is currently being served in a 14-oz tulip-shaped goblet. The beer is golden copper with a thick, foamy white head that lasts throughout consumption. There is a slight malt aroma, but it is otherwise heavily scented with sweet citrus from the dry hopping.

Spoken like the true wife of Deuane, I’m finding it to be sweet to the tongue, and slightly bitter. There is a total of  54 pounds of hops associated with the ale – 34 pounds in the boil, which were primarily Horizon (also Centennial and Amarillo.) Then it’s dry-hopped with Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo in three different additions. Yup – this is a real hop bomb! Served on nitrogen, Deuane is extremely smooth with a medium body and pleasant balance. It’s so citrusy and smooth, which makes it extremely drinkable for the DIPA fan.

Deuane is currently available by request on CO2 for growler fills (oops – I spoke too soon…it just kicked!), so I tried a glass of that, too. I’m actually preferring the version served on CO2 simply because it’s even more biting with citrus (although I’m not sure I could drink as much this way!) but I’m not sure a more common palate would enjoy it nearly as much. [Note to my dearest friends, I am not in any way suggesting you are common!]

Paired with the Deuane sandwich (special for the weekend) – grilled multi-grain bread, extra sharp cheddar cheese, ham, and a fennel and cumin mustard – Deuane/Deuane is such a treat!

  1. So good to see you again and finally meet Deuane – in all his manifestations! LOVED the ham sandwich!! I wish I liked hoppy beers so that I could have enjoyed Deuane’s many attributes.

    Now – if you decide to go for a Carolyn Stout… make sure I’m the first to know!

    over a longer duration of time. They boost body stamina, immunity andd muscular tissues, reduce cellulite and increase your memory space.
    It is also important that you minimize processed foods wiuth high levels of
    sugar, trans fats, and artificial colors and sweetedners that upset the balance of
    the bacteria in your digestive system.

  4. Blogging– advertise your company.
    Lots of companies now utilize blogging pages
    as an informal way of connecting with their consumers.
    For the smaller, or brand-new business owners, it’s
    an outstanding method to advertise their items without pricey marketing prices.
    Simply by uploading a normal blog writing pillar, small business can typically reel in even more company compared to by the much more typical techniques.

    Ask as many questions as you want, and ask to speak with prior patients to get more information regarding
    the whole experience. However, as long as recovery instructions are followed most women do not
    experience anything other than the expected discomfort
    from surgery. Between the two incisions,
    the tissue of the lower back is then mobilized as flaps for enhancement of the
    upper buttock region.

  5. Howdy! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you
    know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone 4.
    I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might
    be able to fix this problem. If you have any
    recommendations, please share. Appreciate it!

  6. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who was conducting
    a little homework on this. And he in fact bought me lunch because I
    discovered it for him… lol. So let me reword this….
    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this issue here on your web
