Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

Look out Bend! Redmond on the rise!

Posted By on Sun, May 18, 2014 at 9:51 PM

Once again, the Source is proud to break the news that Redmond is on the rise! On my drive back from Portland, I stopped at Wild Ride, the newly opened brewery on the north reach of town.
In a word: Great.
The owners/staff were friendly. It was relatively lively, with a few dozen people (impressive for a Sunday evening). It was a young and lively group, a few couples at the bar, several tables filled with chattering parties and an outdoor fire pit with a laughing and good-natured 20-something set.
The space is wide open, 25 foot ceilings with a garage door opening to an outside patio and another garage door opening to the brewery. There are 12 styles on tap. I only had one pint—the 3 Sisters Red—but also sampled the Fly P.A. (an India Pale Ale). (Hey, I was driving. How much do you want me to drink?) Smooth and forgiving on the bitterness, the red is an easy-drinking beer.
I’m telling you: Redmond, next “it” town.
