Coming soon is the much anticipated collaboration between Deschutes Brewery and Hair of the Dog Brewing: Collage. This beer answers the question: What would happen if we blended Hair of the Dog's Adam and Fred with Deschutes Brewery's Dissident and Stoic? Oh, and what if we aged everything in a variety of barrels?" Well, I for one am glad that someone asked that question. I'm even more happy that the two great breweries decided to answer that question. Expect this beer to hit the shelves and disappear within the same day.

Widmer Brothers Brewing is also pushing up the ABV with their Old Embalmer Barleywine Style Ale. This is part of their new Alchemy Series (as mentioned with the first release of their Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout). Weighing in at 10.2% ABV, the release of this Barleywine Style Ale is probably a way off since the aforementioned first release in the series just hit the shelves. Along with the upcoming Kill Devil Brown, expectations are high for these higher-octane, lower volume releases.
