Deschutes Brewery and Public House
The Brewery that started it allEst. 1988, Bend
Deschutes Brewery has spawned a great number of brewers who brew, or have brewed, for many Central Oregon Breweries. It It is a cornerstone of Bend – and one of three reasons we moved here in 20o1. What started out as Fish Brewing, but not much later became Deschutes, the brewhouse on Bond Street was (and is) a place for enjoying good beer with friends and as the namesake implies, a hub for the community. With John Harris crafting their first signature beer “Black Butte Porter”, there was no stopping Deschutes from becoming a household name to craft beer lovers across the nation.
Getting Black Butte and other signature beers to the masses involved a larger production facility, so they built one overlooking the Deschutes River, and hit the more beer button in 1996. This production facility, which on occasion doubled as a great place for epic Halloween bashes, also has a tasting room known as “The Mountain Room” where you can taste beers and take tours to learn about their history. On Feb. 1, 2012 the brewery’s much anticipated, two-story downtown Bend pub expansion opened. The new construction more than doubled the pub’s size, and founder Gary Fish jokingly said it had been 20 years in the making. Indeed. There were high hopes in 2017 for the expansion across the Mississippi to Virginia, however it was a short 4 year run, no thanks to the COVID 19 pandemic. Distributed Nationally, and with pubs in Bend and Portland, Deschutes Brewery is Oregon’s largest independently owned craft brewery, and a great place to have a pint.
