Sure ya got beer, but how about a tour? It’s a brewery – but big plans are in order, so hang onto that growler!
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!
Got any tips? Keep an eye out for the “Phat Mobile” (say it like “Bat Mobile” – you know “bat mo-beel”).
Can I get some tasty beer to go? Hit up any worthy local pub or market and chances are Phat Matt’s will be there.
Walk, bike, or drive? Drive for sure, when the tasting room is open. Could be a nice pit stop on the way out of town.
Last one – Is there like a locals night or something? Check back soon.
Est. 2011 – Phat chance.
Back when “Phat” Matt Mulder was the chef-owner of Bend’s Bluefish Bistro(in 2004-08), he was known as the king of “molecular gastronomy.” Whatever that is. We’re sure it’s the thing that makes his craft brew amazing. Mulder has 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. Technically these guys are not in Bend now, but according to the laws of relativity they’re right up the street, so we’re good. Cheers!
