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.
