Dogfish Head: World Wide Stout 

The World Wide Stout beer holds a whopping 18 percent of alcohol, one of Bend's most cellar-worthy beer available.

When this beer burst on the microbrewing scene in 1999, it was the strongest beer around. Though other beers have since topped World Wide Stout's current 18 percent alcohol marker - including Dogfish Head's 120 minute IPA, which clocked in at 21 percent several years ago - this 70 IBU stout is still one of the most cellar-worthy beers available in Bend these days.


More so than high-alcohol-content Russian Imperial Stouts like Old Rasputin'(9 percent) or Deschutes' Abyss (11 percent), World Wide Stout is like a port. It's syrupy and hot, but the talent at Dogfish Head keeps it from being sickly sweet. The beer is kind of molten on the tongue, but has a lovely fizziness that is just plain fun to feel. It's a deep, dark brown with a ruby tinge and a thin halo of little bubbles for a head.

Putting this beer in your cellar and forgetting it for awhile will only make it better. The burn from the high alcohol content will mellow out resulting in a richer, softer feel.

Find it at The Brew Shop in 12-ounce bottles for $9.30.

  • DO NOT SPIT ON MY CAR

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

  • THE SOURCE ROCKS, BUT 'ONE DAY AT A TIME' DOESN'T

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
