When Gary Fish started Deschutes Brewery in 1988, no one would have guessed the role beer would take in the lives of Central Oregonians. Today, Central Oregon boasts more breweries per capita than anywhere in the country. With 24 breweries (and counting), you may just need more than one trip to see them all. Sip your way through the Bend Ale Trail, comprising twelve of Central Oregon’s breweries. Don’t forget to feed your appetite along the way.
