Editor’s Note: This Friday and Saturday beer drinkers from around Central Oregon and beyond will file into the Les Schwab amphitheater for the chance to sample craft beers from around Oregon and the Western United States as part of the 2010 Bend Brewfest. If you like beer, and we know that you do, this is simply The Place To Be this weekend as the hop-ified liquid goodness flows from the taps. In recognition of this great gathering of fermented malts, we’re offering a different kind of guide to the event. In a nod to March Madness, we’ve developed our own bracketology methodology for you to rate and compare the two dozen breweries on hand. The match-ups are beyond arbitrary (they’re in alphabetical order). So drink up and have fun filling out your brackets. We’re all winners when beer is the game.
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.
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.
