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!

The Bite of Bend happens this weekend—offering locals a chance to try bite-sized morsels from restaurants you might not yet have had a chance to sample, in addition to the Top Chef competition, a Bartenders' Brawl, live music, craft vendors and much more.


Southern Eats, Out East

Cajun-inspired food truck joins 9th Street Village
Walking up to the Southern Accent food truck, I'm eager to order the highly-anticipated soft-shell crab po' boy sandwich. It's a beautiful 70-degree evening and the sounds of friendly chatter and disc golf echo behind me. But to my dismay, they've sold out of seafood entirely.


Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe partners with Deschutes Brewery on water

Tired of seeing plastic bottles left on and around local rivers—which are also harder to recycle these days—the team at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe tells us they approached Deschutes Brewery about a new collaboration: Offering City of Bend drinking water, served in recyclable aluminum cans.

Terrebonne Depot Gets New Owners & Menu

A pair of avid climbers are the new owners of Terrebonne Depot—the popular watering hole west of Smith Rock. Chefs Jamie Boucher and Even Schwender—who ran the Beta Bites food cart prior to this—have put together a new menu that includes salads, soups, risotto, rib eye, baby back ribs, burgers and sandwiches—plus a full bar.


Historic Building Abuzz with Booze, Brew & Bites

Artisanal coffee and distilled spirits, forged in Prineville
A shot of whiskey in my coffee is a once-in-a-while thing on a camping trip for me. When I first heard about the new Foundry Four coffee bar and tasting room in Prineville, I imagined ordering some kind of boozy, caffeinated drink similar to my campfire mug of brew. Instead, I walked into a bright, airy industrial space with a modern, Old World vibe, and realized I could order my usual cappuccino, enjoy a mouthwatering cinnamon roll and relax on a comfy antique chair.


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.
