The Bend Ale Trail ™ - Your Beer Adventure Begins in Bend, Oregon
In our little mountain town of 82,000 people, Bend has a startling abundance of world-class breweries within a short distance of one another. Bend has more breweries per capita than any other city in Oregon and is often referred to as Beer Town USA!
How to do the Bend Ale Trail - The Largest Beer Trail in the West
Use the Bend Ale Trail Atlas and Passport to discover Bend’s 11 breweries – and for extra credit, head to our neighboring brewery in Sisters to visit the 12th! Make sure you read the rules of the trail before you head out here because if you don't follow the rules, you don't get a prize.
Get your passport stamped at each brewery location (please refer to each brewery's hours of operation here--not all of them are open 7 days a week). When you get all the stamps, stop by or send your completed passport to the Bend Visitor Center (please note Bend Visitor Center hours of operation) and receive a commemorative Bend Silipint made especially for beer drinkers on the go! And, if you do your extra credit and visit Sisters, you’ll receive a special surprise.
The Bend Ale Trail gives visitors and locals alike a glimpse into the unique craft brewery culture of Central Oregon. Learn about the cutting-edge brewing techniques used by Bend’s brewers, meet the artisan brewers who have launched the Bend beer scene onto the World stage, and experience the diversity of styles, art and, taste that differentiate each of our region’s breweries.
Where do I pick up my Bend Ale Trail map and passport?
Pick up the Official Bend Ale Trail atlas at the kiosk in the participating breweries, at the Bend Visitor Center in downtown Bend, the ticket mill at the Old Mill District, or any Central Oregon brochure rack. You can also print a copy of just the passport here or download the free app for your iPhone or Android - where you can virtually stamp your passport.
