Outskirts: Bend’s Beer
Located in the high desert of central Oregon at the eastern foothills of the Cascade Mountains, Bend is famous for its many forms of outdoor recreation.
Offering warm weather activities like rock climbing and hiking, kayaking and rafting, fly fishing, golfing, mountain biking to stellar winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding at nearby Mt. Bachelor as well as cross country skiing, sledding, tubing and snowmobiling in the Deschutes National Forest. To say there are endless opportunities for outdoor fun is an understatement.
All that out-of-doors activity is fine, but what is there to do after the morning jog? Bend, just happens to be famous for a more leisurely endeavor-its significant beer culture. Craft-breweries like Bend Brewery, the Cascade Lakes Brewing Company, McMenamins Old St. Francis School and Bend’s original brew pub Deschutes Brewery that also offers tours of their brewing facility present a whole other way to spend a day in Bend.
