Whether it’s Flanders red floating your boat, or hoppy IPAs that add a spring in your step, you’re bound to find beervana in Bend.

The All New Bend Ale Trail

Seven Territories, One Ale Trail

Bend Ale Trail logo

Back in the day, Bend was a logging town. Today, we’re a lager town. And porter. And IPA. And…well, let’s say craft beer’s booming in Bend.

From six breweries when the Bend Ale Trail launched in 2010 to more than two dozen today, craft beer is king around these parts. Blend in a bunch of distilleries, cideries, wineries, and kombucha brewers and you’ve got a mind-boggling craft beverage scene that’ll never be boring.

Ready to play? Grab your passport or get the app and let’s get sipping. You’ll earn prizes for each new territory you conquer, plus a grand prize for crushing the whole thing. Welcome to beverage bliss!

November is Bend Ale Trail Month

Bend Ale Trail Month

Ah, November. The holidays are on the horizon, you’ve traded your flip flops for sneakers, and ski season is just around the corner. But the best part about November is that Bend Ale Trail Month is happening in beautiful Bend, Oregon.

So, what makes November so special, and why dedicate a whole month to the Bend Ale Trail?

Extra Special Prizes
When you complete any one of the Bend Ale Trail territories and redeem your passport at the Bend Visitor Center during November, not only do you win the standard territory prize, but you will also score a limited edition bonus prize (limit one per person). In 2021, we have glassware straight from the home of Oktoberfest, the land of pilsner, gose, and weisse — a German tankard rimmed with gold and decorated with a badge declaring your status as a Bend Ale Trail Champion.

Contests and Even More Prizes
During Bend Ale Trail Month, share pictures of your beerventure on Instagram using the hashtag #bendaletrailmonth. We’ll randomly select winners to receive fantastic prizes including brewery gift cards, HydroFlasks, ​Silipints, hats, shirts, stickers, and more.

Drink Responsibly

Real talk, guys: Don’t even think about drinking and driving. Ending up in jail is no one’s idea of a good time, so make a safe plan to trek the trail with a sober driver behind the wheel. You’ll find tons of tours, taxis, and rideshare options to help you get around. Got a designated driver on your team? Click to see how your sober pal can earn prizes, too.

Thirsty for Variety?

Drinkable Diversions

Hard to believe, but some folks want a beer break. We won’t hold it against you. In fact, we’ll hold up a glass filled with crisp cider, a handcrafted cocktail, or a lush syrah. Treat your taste buds to a bevy of bevies, whether you’re thirsting for locally-made gin or the flavorful fizz of kombucha.

Stops Along the Bend Ale Trail

Your all new Bend Ale Trail comes divvied up in territories to let you customize your exbeerience. Hike the Deschutes River Trail to get you fired up for The Riverlands, or get your waterfall fix in the Far North. Focus on one region to earn your territory prize, or hop around to hit your faves. That’s the beauty of the brand-new Bend Ale Trail— a customized beerventure that’s as unique as your taste in suds. And since you probably can’t hit them all in one visit, you’ll just have to come back. Bummer.
