Bend, Oregon Beer
Freshly poured and chilled with a bit of foam running down the glass with effervescent bubbles cheering you on as you take that first lingering sip. Suddenly you feel enraptured by the welcoming kaleidoscope of flavors and euphoric feelings. You’re in a hazy dreamland where time pauses for a well-deserved beverage’s compelling yet straightforward pleasures after a refreshing day of play.
Friends, welcome to beer paradise.
Bend, Oregon beer is some of the best tasting, cleanest, and most sought-after beer ever, not just in the area or the state but the entire world. Distinct flavors, innovative brewers, countless awards, and exceptional ingredients are what make our beers so desirable and intoxicating. And it all starts with water. Because of the low mineral content in our spring-fed water filtering its way down from the Cascades, it’s easy to brew just about every style of beer using our fresh, soft Central Oregon water.
Yep, we mean drinkable business when it comes to top-quality ingredients like clean water, hops, and malts. And because we’re obsessed with playing outside, there’s no better way to end a day of mountain biking, whitewater rafting, or summiting mountain peaks than indulging in an exquisitely brewed hoppy, hazy, dark, or malty friend.
Wondering where to get started on your beer adventure? How about discovering one, or as many as you like, of over 22 breweries pouring out award-winning beers in Bend. You’re sure to find a new favorite that hits the taste buds just right. Or, take a tasty pour home to share with friends from one of many growler fill stations popping up all over town. Heck, why not schedule your vacation around one of Bend’s many annual beer events like The Little Woody Barrel-Aged Brew & Whiskey Festival, Bend BrewFest, and Bend Oktoberfest.
