Bend’s original. Need we say more?
Back when a microbrew basically meant a Widmer Hefeweizen, the brewmasters at Deschutes Brewery had a vision of their own craft brewery. They founded Bend’s first brewery back in 1988 and introduced the world to classics like Black Butte Porter and Mirror Pond Pale Ale. The continuing crowds at their brewpub on Bond Street are testament to the quality of their beers. It would not be a Bend brew festival without the original. We’re glad that they will be joining us at the finish line celebration!
Brewmaster Brian Faivre answered a few questions about their beer for us:
How long have you been in business?
How would you describe your beer style?
Experimental, cutting edge, and above all – damn tasty.
What’s your favorite beer at your brewery?
Depends on the season and moment. For CLR – Twilight – duh!
Bend’s beer scene is exploding. Why do you think Bend is becoming a destination for craft brewing?
Because of all the talented brewers and consumers of great craft beer!
Why do you think running and beer go so well together?
After a good run – what really quenches your thirst and replaces electrolytes? A cold, tasty craft beer of course!
What’s your running style?
Where can CLR folks find your beers after the race weekend?
