Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

We had a chance to drop by Crux Fermentation , the new Old Mill area brewery from Paul Evers of tbd and longtime Deschutes brewmaster Larry Sidor. The brewery is shooting for an end of June opening and things are moving apace at the job site where crews are working to get the brew system, kitchen and pretty much everything else installed before grand opening. On Tuesday most of the crew, with the exception of Sidor who was out on a parts run, was on hand to watch as a paint crew erased the Aamco Transmission shop sign once and for all from the front of the building, unofficially marking the start of its new life as a Bend's newest craft brewery.

According to Evers, the building which featured skylights and glue-lam beams before they every started remodeling, began as a mill supply shop. Aamco moved into the building in the 1990s before the parkway was built when the well-trafficked  Division street ran adjacent to the property. Besides the building, Evers said he and his partners liked the centralized if somewhat out-of-the way location that offers surprising mountain views right from the front door.

In fact says Evers, if you put a north-south, east-west grid on the city of Bend, the property would fall right at the intersection of the lines, a fact that helped to inspired the owners to choose the name Crux for their business.

We shot some more pics of the interior, which includes cool re-purposed barn wood finishing, creative wall papering and copper tanks, soon. Stay tuned for more on Crux.
