Trek the Largest Beer Trail in the West

Bend Ale Trail

About

In our little mountain town of more than 87,000 people, Bend has a startling abundance of world-class breweries clustered close together like the gold at the end of a big, beer rainbow.

Why Bend Ale Trail

Beer Town USA!

Bend has more breweries per-capita than any other city in Oregon and has been dubbed Beer Town USA! If beer isn’t your thing, that’s okay. Bend’s growing selection of distilleries and wineries are a great way to quench your thirst for adult beverages, so make sure you check out the Drinkable Diversions along the Bend Ale Trail while you’re in town.

Ale Trail Passport

Get Your Stamps

As you forge your way along the Bend Ale Trail , whip out your passport (one required per person) and ask for a stamp at each brewery. No purchase is necessary at any of the brewery stops, though it’s a great chance to sample suds everywhere you go. Please refer to each brewery’s hours of operation here, as not all of them are open 7 days a week.

Count ‘em, one, two, three…oh, never mind. Suffice it to say, Bend has a heckuva lot of breweries. If you can’t hit them all in one visit, you’ll have to come back. Darn.

How it Works

Pick Up a Map & Passport

It’s important to keep in mind, too that you don’t overdo it. No purchase is necessary to complete the Ale Trail, all you’ve got to do is stamp your passport at each location. It’s probably not wise to attempt the entire Bend Ale Trail in one day. Luckily Bend is home to many great hotels & motels, resorts, vacation rentals, and even B&Bs. Find your perfect place to rest up along the Bend Ale Trail on our Where to Stay page.

Collect 10 Stamps

Got stamps from 10 breweries? Awesome! Pat yourself on the back, then stop by or send your completed passport to the Bend Visitor Center (please note Bend Visitor Center hours of operation) to receive your souvenir, a commemorative Bend Silipint! Got stamps from all 18 breweries? Rock on with your bad self! Not only do you get the Silipint, we’ll also give you a nifty Bend Ale Trail bottle opener.

Please Drink Responsibly

Nothing puts a damper on a Bend vacay like jail time or being dead. Let’s not do that, K? From taxis to ubers to organized tours, we’ve got lots of ways to ensure you never get behind the wheel with a belly full of beer.

Be A Designated Bend Ale Trail Champion

Before you hit the Bend Ale Trail, make sure you’re doing so responsibly. Bend locals always know to leave the driving to someone else, your lucky designated driver.

To say thanks for their heroic act of schlepping folks safely around the Bend Ale Trail, we’ve got a special prize just for the DD. Here’s how you can earn your Hydro Flask True Pint:

  1. Pick a designated driver. The designated driver is someone who is not drinking ANY alochol for that entire day and is responsible for transporting his/her group safely along the Bend Ale Trail.
  2. Use the passport to collect your special “Designated Driver” stamps. you will need to declare yourself as the designated driver to the brewery staff to get this stamp.
  3. Collect a minimum of 10 DD stamps from the Bend Ale Trail brewery locations and redeem your passport at the Bend Visitor Center for your unique Designated Driver prize. Your passport must only have DD stamps on it in order to claim your prize.

There are also no shortage of safe and knowledgeable tour operators who are here to make your experience just that much better. They’ll set you up in style in a cushy bus, a snazzy towncar, or even a Cycle Pub. If you’d prefer to hoof it, start from downtown Bend where more than two-thirds of the breweries are within walking distance. For more click link below.
