Bend Craft Beer Festivals

Stand Around And Drink

Yep, we have breweries. And what’s the best way to showcase them all? Festivals! From a street festival, to a week long festival, to a  festival on the snow. These festivals are your opportunity to sample what Bend breweries have to offer in one venue – multiple venues actually, throughout the year! Taste some good brew, listen to some good tunes, and meet the brewers. It’s beer time! Here’s a quick run down of Bend’s Craft Beer Festivals.
