There's More to This Magical Place

Bend Ale Trail

Welcome to the Craft Beer Capital of the West

When you’ve got the best mountain water in the land, you put it to use making craft beer. To celebrate that, we launched the legendary Bend Ale Trail in 2010. It’s been buzzed about everywhere from The New York Times to USA Today, and in 2021, it got even better. Bend Ale Trail 2.0 brings a bevy of new breweries, territories, and perfect pairings making it more fun to taste your way through coppery pale ales, creamy stouts, and crisp lagers while gathering passport stamps to earn prizes.
