Ok normally I would rate this place very highly, they have good beer and it's a dive. But, today I drove in from portland and I love their beer so this was my first stop. I got out of the car with my growler in hand. I walked in the front door with my growler In Hand. The cute little girl says hello, and then says we can't fill your gangtic breew growler up. I read the board and they only had 4 brews on tap. None of which I was looking to drink. They didn't say bye or anything else. Sadly, I left very disappointed I can't say this is a normal experience but I was so disappointed that this is the kind of brewery they want to become. I will be back because their beer is good, but I hope they don't become a snobby brewery, with classless service.

This was stop #27 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Monday afternoon to enjoy their beers. The taproom is located inside a small partitioned area of this pole barn structure that is located in a mixed residential and light industrial setting. The taproom has more of a feeling of a retail store that it does a taproom, possibly because there is no seating.

With only four beers available it’s easy to experience them without having to sit down, and then move on to the next place, which is what we did. The beers were brewed to style, but we had read a lot of hype about this brewery that we just didn’t feel was whet we experienced. The beers were good to very good, but none were exceptional. Until they are able to grow and produce more selections, we’ve experienced all that we can about this brewery.

IMHO, the tasting room really shouldn't be reviewable. Given what it is, I don't understand how it can receive a good rating (though obviously, it has).

The tasting room is a small affair, consisting of a small bar area where you can stand and get sample pours of whatever is on offer. The first pour is complimentary, and after that it's a dollar a taster. You can also buy t-shirts and other schwag here, as well as growlers to go (which is the primary reason people stop by).

Boneyard beer is outstanding of course, especially their IPA's, DIPA's and APA's. On this day they had the RPM and Hop Venom available, as well the Funky Bunch, the Diablo and an habenero infused red ale. I don't think the funky bunch is anything to write home about, but everything else was excellent of course. Still, I'm just not sure why I'd come by the tasting room, unless they happened to have something on offer that you can't find elsewhere (the funky bunch wasn't available for growler fills, I don't believe). Both the RPM and Hop Venom are very easy to find around town, and prices at some of the growler stations in Bend are cheaper than what you'll pay at the brewery.

As for service, the two women working here were very pleasant, but otherwise, service consists of handing them a couple of bucks, and them handing you a taster glass. Shrug.

I'm a huge fan of Boneyard beers, but there's nothing particularly remarkable about the tasting room.
