10 January 2017 – Bend, OR – Nearly 60 years ago, the motto “Pacific Wonderland” first showed up on license plates in Oregon in celebration of the state’s 100th birthday. Oregon is still a place full of wonder and adventure, and Deschutes Brewery bottled it up in a new sessionable brew befitting of the Pacific Northwest: Pacific Wonderland Lager.

Deschutes Brewery brewmaster Veronica Vega said, “When we set out to create Pacific Wonderland, we wanted to capture the diverse spirit of Oregon in a single beer that we could share with everyone. Our team explored something a little different, creating a lager by style and then dry hopping it to make something unique – just like our home state.”

Pacific Wonderland Lager is made with a pilsner malt and a trifecta of Hallertau Herkules, Hallertau Mettelfruh and Tettnang Mandarina hops. The result is a crisp, bright beer with citrus, floral and herbal hop flavors, a delicate malt body, and a crisp, clean lager finish.

The beer’s colorful label depicts the endlessly diverse adventures that Oregon offers in all seasons, helping bring Oregon to life all the way across the country. “Pacific Wonderland” is a nickname used by many who come to the Northwest to enjoy skiing, biking, rock climbing, surfing, standup paddle boarding, hiking, golf and more. The area’s diverse ecosystems and microclimates are ideal for all kinds of outdoor recreation – and craft beer-sampling. This beer captures it all.

Pacific Wonderland Lager is 5.5 percent ABV and 37 IBUs. It will first be available on draft and in 6-packs throughout the brewery’s distribution area, and 12-packs will roll out in early spring.
