Tortoise Rotating Draft Beer ~ One Keg Only

Notes from Deschutes Website about Mirror Mirror:

First released in bottles in 2006, Mirror Mirror is an oak-aged barley wine that has been in production at the brewery for more than a year. Mirror Mirror is an inspired version of the brewery’s flagship, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, which has been doubled up to barley wine strength – yielding a rich malt base with hints of raisin and oak tinged with the slightest citrus hop aroma.
After an extremely limited release in 2006, we kept a small stash of Mirror Mirror, sending a few kegs to select festivals and pouring it at our pubs from time to time, where customers discovered this unique beer, and a loyal following was born.
“This year’s brewing will have a more layered and refined oak presence,” says Brewmaster Larry Sidor. “I’m really looking forward to this version of Mirror Mirror because it is not only an advancement for this beer, but it also shows the evolution of our knowledge related to barrel aging and how the whole Reserve Series has developed.”
