Bevel Brewing – Bicentennial Double IPA

Citrusy and smooth

The Bicentennial from Bevel leaves a strong mark, to say the least. Its citrus flavors and smooth texture set this apart to make it something truly special. While it sits at 8.9 percent ABV, the flavors make this double easy going. -Isaac Biehl

Boneyard - RPM

Classic staple

Boneyard RPM: what’s left to say that hasn’t been said? Best IPA made in Bend? If it’s not, I’d like to hear a compelling argument that says otherwise. It may not be as frilly or new age as some IPAs, but it’s delicious. Every. Single. Time. – Chris Miller

Ale Apothecary - Sahalie

Wild ale

If you’re not yet familiar with this innovative Bend brewery and its offerings, start with Sahalie, an American wild ale that’s aged in oak barrels and fermented with the brewery’s own lactobacillus culture. Beer geeks, you’re welcome. – Nicole Vulcan

Pfriem - Bright Pale

Spring beer hits all the right notes

Pfriem isn’t a Central Oregon brewery, but it needs to be on your radar, because they make a lot of beers, most among the best in the state. During the spring, they bottle the Bright Pale ale—and it’s unfortunate it’s not a year-round beer. The tropical aromas coupled with the crisp taste make it an instant classic! Go get some before it’s gone. – Chris Miller

Keely Damara

Spider City Brewing - Deer Garden Hazy IPA

Easy drinkin’

This light and dry hazy IPA is perfect for the summer months. Hoppy and juicy like its sister—the Sneaky Deer Hazy Double IPA—but with a lower ABV, you can enjoy more than one.  – Keely Damara

Good Life - Sweet As

Canned beer perfection

Hoppy, fresh and perfect for a sunny afternoon. Sweet As is one of my personal favorites for watching the sun set over the mountains. Plus, it’s 6 percent ABV! – Bron Wickum

Silver Moon - Mango IPA

Fruity love

A tropical burst of flavor; admittedly, it can be dangerous. This IPA is my go-to when hanging out by the water, or just lounging in a lawn chair. – Bron Wickum

Wild Ride Brew - Electri-Fly IPA

Fly beer in Redmond

This Redmond favorite is very aromatic, balancing hops with tropical notes with honey malts for a smooth delivery. – Keely Damara

Madras Brewing - Mexican Stout

Cinnamon and spice

It’s been a long time coming, but Madras finally has a brewery. The recipes are theirs, but the brews are made at Bend’s Kobold Brewing. If you’re a fan of Mexican chocolate, and at the same time, you like stouts, then try the Mexican Stout—made with spicy cinnamon flavors that distinguish Mexican chocolate. – Nicole Vulcan

Worthy Brewing – Strata IPA

Go-to IPA

The Strata IPA is an ideal beverage. It’s fruity, slightly tropical, while not being too overpowering – so it’s very drinkable. It tastes especially satisfying while under the sun and is a prime model of what a good IPA should be. -Isaac Biehl
