Housed in a former AAMCO Transmission Plant still in the heart of Bend, just off of Division Street, The Crux Fermentation Project can be a little tricky to find. They are at the east end of Industrial Way where it hits Division Street. Drive right on by the “Private Road signs and the railroad tracks. The Crux was inspired by their unique location to use non-traditional methods such as decoction mashing, open fermentation, and barrel aging to brew their beer, which is currently distributed throughout Oregon and Washington, and parts of Idaho, California, Colorado, Washington D.C., New York City, Vermont, Maine, British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. With 20+ original craft beers on tap, their tasting room is right in the middle of the brewery. Tasting hours vary by the season, but they do offer free tours 3 days each week for up to 8 people with reservations. Minors are welcome in the restaurant, just not at the bar. Dogs are welcome too, leashed and outside on the spacious grounds by the food carts. Check their Events page for live music.

Share Bend This Fall

Fall is the best time to be in Bend, Oregon. Many people love the change in seasons as it brings colorful landscapes, sunny days, cool nights, foggy mornings, stunning sunsets, fewer crowds, outdoor fire pits, and seasonal brews. Not only that, but the outdoor recreation and entertainment don’t slow down. Take a stroll through Drake Park where the beautiful trees have shifted from summery green to bright autumnal yellow. Hike your way up to the top of Smith Rock to catch that glorious sunrise. Take the family on a fun trip to the local pumpkin patch. Just because the weather has cooled and the days are getting shorter doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. The opportunities are endless. This fall, share what you love. Share what counts. Share Bend.
