Bend Breweries Turns Travel Writer into Craft Beer-liever

(Actually we don’t just think that…we know that – as many Central Oregon beers have been recognized worldwide including Deschutes Brewery‘s Red Chair NW Pale Ale, which has been honored as “Best Beer in the World.”)

Several Bend breweries later, Mishev had a different story to tell. You can check out her piece from the Washington Post here.
