  • Twilight Summer Ale, also from the Deschutes Brewery: This clever golden-hued ale pours remarkably crisp and clean. A distinctive malt body complements a refreshing hop profile led by a heady dose of bold Amarillo hops. This is the #5 Ale in the US.
  • Mirror Pond Pale Ale: Cascade hops and more Cascade hops give this tawny colored ale delicious hop-forward aroma and flavor. Pale malt allows the hops to linger, not overpower.
  • Chainbreaker White IPA: Deschutes is taking you into the next beer frontier. Brewed with wheat and pilsner malt; this IPA displays beautiful citrus aromas from Cascade and Citra hops that meld with the esters of Belgian yeast.

WINE/BEER PAIRING:  To take full advantage of our WHOLE LOIN SPECIAL this month, we’re going to pair your favorite beer from the Holmen Locker with Beef Beer Marinade:


1 1/2 c. of your favorite beer from Holmen Locker
1/2 c. salad oil
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 cloves

Combine the beer with the salad oil, stirring the oil slowly; add the rest of the ingredients. Marinate Holmen Locker beef, turning occasionally.  When ready, grill to your desired temperature.

RECIPE:  Char Crust Rubs are a great way to spice up your favorite dish!  Take a Whole Ribeye Loin or New York Strip Loin and rub your favorite Char Crust Rub on the outside.  Start your grill on high heat to help create a crust.  Turn the grill down and continue grilling until the loin has reached the desired temperature.  These rubs are also great on vegetables, salmon and beef.  Click here for other Char Crust Rubs recipe ideas.
