The Big Get Bigger 

It's official. Deschutes Brewery is ready to launch its first major expansion in more than a decade, adding two new buildings and five fermentation tanks that will boost Bend's flagship brewery by 105,000 barrels per year. The move further solidifies Deschutes position as the premier brewery in Central Oregon and ensures that Deschutes beers will be brewed right here in Bend for the foreseeable future. In addition to the increased capacity, the expansion will allow the brewery optimize its water and energy consumption while touching up the tasting room and gift shop. Construction on the first phase of expansion is projected to begin in mid-May and conclude sometime next year.

  • 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.
