Today marks the start of Central Oregon Beer Week (May 20-27)—eight days of celebrating C.O.'s craft beer scene. There's a lot going on. Keep up to date by picking up this week's Source, on newsstands RIGHT NOW, and grabbing the handy pull out inside the front cover. It's a Central Oregon Beer Week schedule of events. Also, check back here often—we'll make sure you don't miss the best events (like the Ale Apothecary showcase at Crow's Feet Commons on Thursday or the Brews & Bands event at Broken Top Bottle Shop on Saturday featuring Wilderness). There's also specials that run all week, like the Hangover Breakfast at the D&D and the bourbon and barrel-aged tap rotation at GoodLife Brewing.
Beer drinking gets underway tonight at Worthy Brewing Co., home of the Central Oregon Beer Week kick-off party. On tap are brewery tours, raffle prizes, food and plenty of suds ($15, 5:30-7:30pm).
If you'd rather learn about beer, head down to Broken Top Bottle Shop & Ale Cafe for "Beer Books by the Bend Beer Librarian." Find out about new beer styles, get a list of beer books to check out and learn about beer blogs which keep serious drinkers up to date on the latest in the craft beer world (free, 4-5pm).
