Taste of Belgium

Taste of Belgium

Care of Monkless
Monkless Brewing is far from new in Central Oregon, but it's the only brewery currently specializing in Belgian-style beer. Now is a good time to learn (or re-learn) about Monkless, as they'll soon have two locations!

Cheers to Cocktail Week

From June 10 to 14, a host of local bars offer $5 special bevvies
Plenty of bars and restaurants in Central Oregon serve up inventive and/or delicious cocktails—but when's the last time you could count on getting one made with local spirits for just $5? Thank goodness Cocktail Week is upon us.

Megaphone Coffee Returns to Old Stomping Grounds

Coffee meets brewery at the new Beer Club on Galveston
Lemon pistachio is probably not the first flavor that one might gravitate toward when ordering coffee, so I had to try this one out for myself. The barista behind the counter assured me that it's surprisingly complementary to the steamed macadamia milk and full-bodied espresso.

Elixir Pushes Central Oregon Wine Growth

Tasting room crush site in downtown Bend
In a leap of faith, Kirk Ermisch bought the property on Lava and Arizona in 2008 because it sits in the center of town. Located on the edge of the historic district, Ermisch had no idea what would happen with the neighborhood, since it was still undeveloped—but back then, he'd heard a Market of Choice was in the works.

Gompers Distillery Grand Opening

First distillery in Redmond is a throwback to the 1920s
When your grandfather survives the Holocaust and goes on to be a badass baker to the who's who of Hollywood stars, including Tom Jones and David Bowie, what do you do?

It Ain't Easy Brewing Green

Cannabis beers continue to evolve and gain popularity, despite challenges
Beer and cannabis have been informally linked for generations. With the growing legalization movement and general mainstreaming of cannabis culture, the relationship has become formalized.

A Community Brew

Riverbend produces Blunder Armour IPA to help Cascade Armory battle Under Armour
Riverbend Brewing Company's latest beer is a classic interpretation of a Northwest IPA. It's clean looking, tastes great, and at 7 percent alcohol by volume, will give drinkers that after-a-hard-day relaxation IPAs are known for.
