Modern Times Beer Sampler

Introducing our newest basket creation for the Beer Geek.  Deschutes Gift Baskets is expanding into Rare Beer Gift Basket designs which will feature beers that are hard to find or found in specialty bottle shops.  Your beer gift will become a new experience for the beer enthusiast who enjoys trying new beers.  Modern Times Dankness Beer Sampler. Here is an introduction to Modern Times philosophy from Modern Times Beer Website “We focus (non-monogamously) on aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, sessionish beers. We often brew hybrid styles, combining the features we like from established categories to create new, Island-Of-Doctor-Moreau-style mash-ups.”

Our Modern Times dankness Sampler will feature four unique 16oz. beers that will blow your mind and your taste buds.

Black House –  Coffee Roasty Stout ABV 5.8% IBU 46  | Description – Black House is an oatmeal coffee stout bursting with coffee aroma and flavor. Modern Times is one of the only breweries in the world to roast our own coffee, which allows us to be exceptionally picky about which coffees we use and how we roast them. The result is an abundantly flavorful beer that’s incredibly complex and aromatic, with loads of roast character and a chocolate-covered espresso bean finish.

Lomaland – Bright Rustic Saison ABV 5.5% IBU 30 |  Description –  Lomaland is an earthy, rustic Belgian-style farmhouse ale that’s both complex and quaffable. It smells like hay, pepper, and friendly sunshine. Its dry, cracker-like body and lightly-hoppy finish makes it a beautiful compliment to food.

Booming Rollers – Hoppy Citra IPA  ABV 6.8% IBU 75 | Description –  Booming Rollers™ is a showcase for the juicy awesomeness of Citra hops. These new wave American hops impart a remarkable aroma and flavor, which we’ve amplified with the dark stone fruit character of New Zealand-grown Motueka hops. Some Centennial is thrown in to balance the tropical fruit party, and the malt body is just assertive enough to support Booming Rollers’ snappy bitterness. It’s a party in your mouth and all the beautiful people are invited.

Fruitlands – Gose Sour ABV 4% IBU 20 | A sour gose that’s tart, fruity, complex, and delicious.  The sour, salty base beer brings the funky refreshment, while the heavy dose of sour cherries turns the whole thing into a fruity, tasty cherry bomb.  An intricate mix of flavors that works remarkably well.  For more information about Modern Times Beer visit

We have paired Tiramisu Wafer cookies, two packages of Chukar Cherrie trail mix and a savory snack mix for great weekend experience.  Our Modern Times Dankness sampler sure to be a big winner for father’s Day this year.
