One beer is a good start and a pair is even better — but everyone knows that three of a kind is the way to go. Deschutes Brewery is holding that winning hand with its seasonal offerings: Red Chair NWPA, Jubelale and Twilight Summer Ale.

Packing a variety of malts with a small punch of hops, Red Chair – this year's winner for Best Seasonal Beer — is different from other pale ales. This copper-bodied brew is surprisingly complex, with floral notes and a pleasant citrus finish typically found in IPAs.

The popular Jubelale– tied for 2nd place — gets better every year. Nothing warms up the body quite like the roasty and spicy notes in this winter ale. The dark body, hoppy finish and colorful new label — courtesy of local artist Taylor Rose — all make this brew an annual tradition.

Twilight Summer Ale – also tied for 2nd — offers a winning combination of malts and hops. This golden-bodied ale is crisp and refreshing, with a tasty mix of citrus and grapefruit flavors. (Hopefully, it'll be back on the brewing schedule in the future.)

(Sorry, no information is currently available for other years in this same award category.)
