Bend Named Best Beer City

Crux outside table and beers

Whether it’s the awards from national and global beer competitions, mentions in travel sections or the simple shout outs on social media after someone trys a Central Oregon craft beer for the first time, we always love being recognized for our amazing beer scene.

Citing our plentiful craft-beer options (25 breweries and counting) along with the hiking and mountain bike trails and Mt. Bachelor and Hoodoo ski resorts, recently put us atop their list of  “10 Best Beer Cities.” We agree with their assessment for all the same reasons – Bend’s a great place to live and the beer makes it an even better place to wind down.
