This is a great place to go in Bend if the more major microbrewery place is crowded. This is a place with a great patio to sit on hot summers day. Drink their Hefe, Pale Ale, or IPA and watch the day go by. They got great views of the Mirror Pond on the river that the other brewery gets its name from.
Inside there are a couple of choices for seating. In the bar area, if you want to meet folks or down in the dining room with its large picture windows and Bend views.
This place can get crowded in the evening but the wait staff are friendly and the food comes out quickly. Their calamari is about the best I've gotten here in Oregon.
I like to stay in a downtown inn within walking distance. That way I can sample more of their beers.

This was stop #33 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Tuesday evening to enjoy their beers and to have dinner. The brewery is located on the fringe of the downtown area in an attractive, stand-alone building. Finding a parking spot was an issue, but we only had to walk a block.
To go along with our dinner we ordered a sampler flight of all 10 of the beers that were available. Each of the beers is brewed to style, but most of them were just average or slightly better. However. There were some standouts, including maybe the most surprising beer that we experienced in our three-week trip. (Surprising because we are not sour beer lovers and this was the most sour of all that we had experienced to date.) That beer is called Ching Ching. Also notable were the Elk Lake IPA and the Scottish Heart Scotch Ale.
We enjoyed our meal, and then called it a day because we were beer’d out when we finished, and tomorrow was the start of the 4-day drive back to Michigan. We liked this brewpub and would definitely return if we are ever in Bend again.
