Vacation in Bend, Or
« on: August 05, 2015, 09:36:31 AM »
Hey guys and gals-

We're headed to Bend for the Bend Beer Festival next weekend, and need a good recommendation for a restaurant.  Who knows a good place with good food, and an even better tap selection?

Its going to be hard to beat the tap selection at the event lol.

Theres a real good restaurant across the river (foot bridge) from the amphitheater.

Terri and I will be there Saturday,  event... probably not the restaurant

We had a really good meal at the Deschutes brewpub a few years ago.  I'd definitely go back.

Worthy Brewing had good food and beer.
10 Barrel if you are not boycotting.
Brother Jon's Public House had a great breakfast.

If only I could remember more.

The Deschutes brewpub has great food and beer. They serve up some beer that is taproom only there so it's worth checking it out if you like their beers.

Crux is also solid in both beer and food. It's not in the downtown area but not much of a drive.

10 Barrel is a good option. Great pizza and I like several of the beers. They do some cool berliner weisses.

If sour beer is your thing then you would be well served to find some Ale Apothecary. The bottles are pricey (like $30/750) but worth it IMO. They are hard to find and will likely be even more difficult to find with a beer fest going on. It might be around Crow's Feet Commons by the pond but Jackson's Corner might be your best bet.

Supposed to have about 30 breweries and about 20 food vendors at the event. I don't plan to need much more than that. Lol
