Living in Central Oregon is great. We have the best scenery, the best outdoor scene and the best in craft beer.
With one brewery for every 4,500 people, we have the most breweries per capita in the state of Oregon! Just like the beers they create, each brewery comes with a distinct story about what makes it unique.
That’s why we launched Central Oregon brews and news. We wanted to give a platform for breweries to tell their story. Each month we will feature a local brewery on the air, and here, on our page. You’ll get their story about the different styles they produce, the different people in charge of the beer and what makes them so unique. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase gift cards to these great locations.
Our local breweries help make Central Oregon a special place, so enjoy their stories here.
Sunriver Brewing Company's pub in the Village at Sunriver opened to rave reviews in the summer of 2012. Recognizing that the original pub would not accommodate demand, a 13,000-square foot building was purchased in the Business Park in 2014. Since that time, Sunriver Brewing Company has garnered many national and international awards. In February of 2016, Sunriver opened its second pub location on Galveston Avenue in Bend Oregon. The year of 2017 included a major national accomplishment with winning Small Brewing Company of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival. Taste the beers alongside delicious food at our two locations, The Sunriver Pub in Sunriver Village and the Galveston Pub in Bend.
Worthy Brewing Company opened its doors in early 2013, delivering remarkably balanced beer that is hand-crafted using premium ingredients and the pristine water from the Cascade Mountains in Bend, Oregon. Worthy's campus includes a large outdoor biergarten, full restaurant, and a greenhouse and hop yard onsite for growing estate and experimental hops in conjunction with Oregon State University and Indie Hops. Earlier this year, Worthy completed the expansion of "Beertopia" which features the "Hopservatory," with a large telescope, "The Hop Mahal," a banquet space, "The Beermuda Triangle" expanded indoor seating, and "The Star Bar," an open-air adults-only mezzanine bar.
Cascade Lakes Brewing Company was founded in 1994 by three enthusiastic brothers looking for an exciting business in beautiful, sunny Central Oregon. What started as a small brewing facility in an airport industrial zone has turned into a state-of-the-art, 25-barrel brew house system that allows brewing 775 gallons per batch, three times daily. The partners also expanded from just a brewery to having four local pubs: 7th Street Brew House, Tumalo Tavern, Cascade West Grub and Alehouse, and our flagship restaurant in Bend, Cascade Lakes Lodge. Cascade Lakes beer is now distributed and sold in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and California.
Cascade Lakes brews six beers year-round: Blonde Bombshell, 20" Brown, Salted Caramel Porter, Hopsmack IPA, Mosaic IPA, and Cyclops IPA and brew many seasonals throughout the year. Look for our beers on draft at your favorite pub and grab a six-pack at your local grocery store.
