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.
