Sure ya got beer, but how about a tour? How about no.
Where’s Redmond? It’s the town north of Bend, which you drive through on the way to and from Portland.
Do they know they spelled fat wrong? It’s not “fat” meaning fat, it’s “phat” meaning “pretty hot and tasty” — in other words, good! But still not good enough to last.
Got any tips? They should have made better beer.
Can I get some tasty beer to go? Nope.
Walk, bike, or drive? How about drive-thru.
Last one – Is there like a locals night or something? If you’re an alley cat, and like dumpster diving, yes..
Est. 2011 – 2013. Phat chance. R.I.P.
Back when “Phat” Matt Mulder was the chef-owner of Bend’s Bluefish Bistro ( 2004-08), he was known as the king of “molecular gastronomy.” Whatever that is. We’re sure it’s the thing that made his craft brew amazing. Mulder teamed with partners Paul Mercer (another restaurateur of Kokanee Cafe and Trout House fame), brewer Josh Riggs (previously of Shasta Brewing and Fearless Brewing) and John Foran to make this enterprise happen – and then fall apart. Technically these guys were not in Bend, but according to the laws of relativity they were right up the street, in Redmond. Cheers!
