Inside The Bend Brew Daddy Calendar continues with Deschutes Brewery. Deschutes is one of the biggest and best craft breweries in the nation, and for 26+ years, is still a favorite among locals. Named after the river that supplies the brewery with it's main ingredient, Deschutes has won many awards Worldwide, and Black Butte Porter is on many craft drinker's lists as one of the best in the World. So, it was easy to choose Black Butte Porter as the calendar shot for June.
Inspired by the history and label transition over the years, I decided to celebrate that history with a photo that shows the label progression. Jason at Deschutes let me take home the only bottles left with the old labels. From there I had to map out the shot. I wanted to try a pouring shot, but knew that the pour had to come from a new bottle. After setting up the camera on a tripod and holding a remote, I laid the bottle down and started firing away! I ended up with 12 shots, with the above shot being the best of the bunch.
Below, you can see the shots that I took of the pour from start to finish. Thanks to Jason Randles and everyone at Deschutes for trusting me with the bottles of history. However, I was tempted to pop open the old Buttes to taste how well they have aged, but I refrained and promptly brought back the bottles for others to enjoy.
