Mybeerbuzz .com Highlights The Deschutes Da Shootz! Promo Pack (Review)

Mybeerbuzz .com Highlights Deschutes Da Shootz! Promo Pack
It’s not often that I get a more memorable promo pack from a brewery like I did today.  I do get some interesting shipments with some pretty cool things, but the package that arrived today at mybeerbuzz headquarters has to be the winner….and of course it came from Deschutes.

Back in January, I was really excited to get a chance to sample a new beer from Deschutes.  The beer was called Da Shootz! and this new American Pilsner was really a treat to sample.  Back then I said:
“The beer pours a bright and clear golden color with a pleasant malty aroma and some slightly floral hops.  The body is light and the flavors have a bit of toasted malt up front and a nice well-balanced light citrus hop finish thanks in part to the Lemondrop and Azacca hops on board.  After a few sips the beer rounds out nicely and we really enjoyed how drinkable and pleasant this beer is.  Da Shootz! uses Synergy Select Pilsen malts and they really contribute to the overall taste and feel of the beer.  Look for this sessionable lager to hit 4%-AbV, 25 IBU, 5.5 carbs and only 99 calories per 12oz serving.”
Back in Jan I had two 12oz cans and they quickly disappeared so it was very exciting to see the box arrive from Deschutes.  To my surprise I not only found another 6-pack of Da Shootz! but also an amazing promo pack filled with all sorts of cool Da Shootz! items including a multi-media card!  Check out the video below to see what I mean.

If that wasn’t fun enough (yes I had to watch the video several times!) the box included even more.  Several Da Shootz! stickers were on board and a small box that invites you to “Build Some Fun.”  Inside the box are custom-made Lego's that allow you to build the Da Shootz! parrot.  Thankfully the box comes with a 36-step picture instruction sheet to take you from bits & pieces to the full “Pair It Parrot!”  Of course we cracked open a few Da Shootz! and built the parrot and of course the puzzle even includes a Leggo can of Da Shootz! for the parrot to hold.

I think Deschutes have hit on a winner here and I suspect this beer will fit in well in the session-beer / reduced-calorie craft segment that I see growing every day.  Overall we liked the balance and easy-drinking character of Da Shootz and I think you will too.  Be sure to try Deschutes Da Shootz! for yourself, and when you do, be sure to let us know what YOU think.
