Neat space in an industrial park, nicely build out with a very impressive room full of brite tanks that are seated stadium style on risers behind the bar (hard to describe, but you will understand when you see it). The beers were largely solid and perhaps a bit more interesting then much of what you get in Portland. Service was good and the atmosphere was laid back. We ordered a small snack at the bar and it was good, though I wouldn't be inclined to come here for dinner.

I've been here a couple of times now and really enjoy pub and vibe. It's one of those places that's easy to see from the main roads, but takes a little time to actually find the parking lot. Though if you're downtown or at Old Mill it's an easy walk. A large bar when you walk in, with brew tanks and kettles all around you. The hop room is essentially in the middle main seating area and when the door opens.....wow, what a great aroma!

Staff has always been friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. As others have noted, it definitely can get busy. Beer selection is outstanding. The food menu is more limited compared to other pubs in Bend, but the quality was excellent; though I can't fully opine as we just had apps. Definitely worth a visit.

Cool spot up on a little bluff abutting the freeway. Great view of the mountain ranges from the wide expanse of a front lawn and sitting area. All the fermentation, bright, and brewing tanks are well withing view from the inside. Awesome Bend brewery, a must visit

A busy place at sunset due to the amazing view of the Cascades. Great brews, good service.

I visited Crux during my annual pilgrimage to Bend this weekend, and I wasn't disappointed. I sat at the bar with a million other holiday weekend tourists, but despite the big crowds service was quick. I think Bend establishments are set up to deal with mass throngs, in general.

There were 22 taps of regular, seasonal and barrel-aged beers available, plus a guest cider and a guest kombucha. The beers I had were quite decent, if unspectacular. I would like to visit again to sample more of their offerings, as they really have quite a wide range of beers.

I came in, tired from driving almost 3 hours... Kelli greeted me with a smile and made me feel at home. I had the pork belly Banh Mi, and it was delicious. Some of the beers were on the 'this is good' scale, and some (like freakcake) were a sensory explosion. I will be coming back.

Crux is a freaking top notch place. Great vibe, especially when the sun is out and the lawn and taco truck are rolling. Quality beers across the board, but the Off Leash Session is a personal favorite. Plus I can roll there with my mutt, which is a huge bonus.
