Bend, Oregon is beer heaven… and it’s also a pretty cool town. It’s home to twenty eight (and growing) craft breweries, the Deschutes rolls right through the middle of town, there’s really, really good mtn biking pedaling distance from the brews, and the Mt Bachelor ski area is just about 30 minutes away. Too bad it has real winters.
For better or worse I took a job in Ca for a week and that meant that for the first time in months we actually had to be somewhere on a specific date… man, talk about pressure. Which meant that we couldn’t spend as much time in Bend as twenty eight breweries requires… so we did what damage we could… and promised ourselves that we’d pull a Douglas MacArthur and come back to finish what we started. My personal fave… so far anyway was Boneyard RPM… one of THE BEST beers I’ve tasted!
