Deschutes Brewery Launches Marionberry Lavender Sour Ale

Marionberry Lavender is an American Sour Ale infused with Oregon Marionberry and aromatic lavender. Inspired by culinary cocktails, the Deschutes brewing team was challenged to bring their most inspirational creation to the table to create this new sour series, a first for the brewery.


Veronica Vega runs creative development for the brewery, “This series is unique as it takes very approachable flavors like berry and citrus and raises a little bit of intrigue with spice, botanics and hops.”

Marionberry Lavender Sour features Hallertau Mittelfrüh hops with 4.3% ABV and 10 IBU.

Deschutes launches this expressive sour ale in bright, colorful 12-ounce, 6 pack cans and on draft. Marionberry Lavender sour is currently shipping to wholesalers in the brewery’s distribution footprint.  Tangelo Cardamom follows the Marionberry Lavender release this fall.
