Bend Breweries & Pubs
Beer is part of the Bend culture, and we are darn proud of it. With over 30 breweries in town (and counting!), slews of awarding-winning brews, and a wealth of outdoor activities to work up a thirst, you better believe that we know how to beer in this town. And with so many hop-driven locals, you’ll find a copious amount of breweries and pubs to choose from.
Bend, Oregon breweries are making some of the country’s finest, most in-demand, influential, and flavorful beers. From hefty Belgian-style ales at Monkless to hazy goodness at Boss Rambler, and everything in between, you are certain to find a beer to satisfy and intrigue your palate. Throwing it back to 1988, Deschutes Brewery helped launch the craze as a small craft brewery, and has helped inspire the next generation of brewers and breweries. Nowadays, you can add Silver Moon Brewery, Crux Fermentation Project, and Bend Brewing Co., among many other local craft breweries pouring out heavenly pints, flights, and growlers.
And what goes better with beer? Savory, inventive, decadent, mouthwatering food!
Bend’s pubs and breweries not only serve up tasty pints but delicious ooey-gooey pizzas, juicy burgers, loaded pub nachos, or if you desire something on the lighter side, hearty salads and appetizers that will stoke out your tastebuds.
Along with mouthwatering dishes, many breweries have outdoor seating with fire pits to keep you toasty in the winter and sunny panoramic views in the summer. And families will enjoy the kid-friendly atmosphere and menus at most breweries.
Whether you’re hankering for a malty porter, or jonesing for a West Coast IPA, let the famed and flavorful Bend Ale Trail guide you through the seas of endless hoppy, dark, hazy, sour, inventive, and darn delicious brews.
