As more people are discovering the refreshing taste of what was the “working man’s” drink—beer—the need for breweries is rising. We in Bend, being the considerate folks we are, are working hard to meet the demand. Deschutes Brewery, located at 1044 NW Bond Street, isn’t the newest brewery in town, having opened in 1988. But when a brewery has been around this long, they have probably picked up a few tricks over the years. In this case, you would be right! Offering an extensive dinner and appetizer menu in addition to their selection of beers, this moderately priced brewery and pub is the perfect spot to visit when you’re looking for a fun night on the town!
Because nothing pairs better with a great craft beer than a delicious starter, Deschutes Starter Menu is famous throughout town. Calamari, hummus, and their extra special fries are just a few of the delectable treats that await you, and all are created from fresh and local ingredients whenever possible! Light eaters will enjoy their soups and salads, while those with heavier appetites will appreciate their hearty sandwiches; the Juniper Elk burger is a local favorite! Because vegetarians who don’t feel like salad often get overlooked, Deschutes Brewery in Bend offers a Vegan Cashew Flatbread topped with olive oil, garlic, grilled artichoke hearts, roasted tomatoes, spinach, cashew parmesan, arugula salad, and fresh herbs which is both filling and delicious!
But You’re Really Here for the Beer
And we can’t blame you. Deschutes Brewery is famous throughout the region for its choice of year-round, seasonal, Bond Street Series, Reserve blends, and their collaboration beers. Pacific Wonderland Lager is one of the more popular year-round brews, while the Jubelale tops the seasonal list, the Fresh Squeezed IPA ranks high in the Bond Street Series, and the Pinot Suave, which is NOT a wine as you may think, but more of a combination of an ale and wine, is a unique favorite from the Reserve Series. Oh, and listen up all you whisky connoisseurs: Their Black Butte Whiskey has been distilled from one of Deschutes’s most popular porters! This collaboration was absolutely genius!
