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.

Another Day, Another #Beer Award Bend Wins Best Beer Town, Again

Posted By on Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 11:57 AM

Garnishing attention as one of the best beer towns in the nation is nothing new for Bend, so it's no surprise that the recent USA Today Best Beer Towns list featured the city ranked at a healthy #4. 

Here's what the list had to say about Bend:
#4 - Bend, Ore.

"When it comes to beer, it's Portland's little sister," says beer journalist Tara Nurin, about Bend, Oregon. "Lots of early and strong breweries doing innovative stuff and a hefty beer culture. Oh yeah, and the hops." This lively mountain city earned its spot on the beer city map with Deschutes and a tradition of local brewing that has spawned the Bend Ale Trail, a self-guided tour of area breweries.

What's special about this win is the list isn't compiled based on number of breweries per capita, it's not put together by high-minded beer critics or industry professionals. The 10Best Readers' Choice listing is voted on by the people! The true beer lovers of America! So thanks, drinkers. We think our town is pretty great, too.
See the full list of winners here with Grand Rapids, Mich. coming in first.
