My first trip to Mt. Bachelor / Bend / Deschutes.
Please say a prayer for the young soul that died on the mountain Sunday Jan. 13.
Our trip coincided with the '08 Abyss release. It was a powerful and slow drinking snifter. The place was packed when we arrived around 9PM. The bar and inside of the restaurant welcomed us in from the cold (damn near zero F no wind). The bar was packed but we found prompt service without a hitch. The food was on par for pub food. The party started around 4:30 we were told that the bottles were sold early. We were also told to check back later. I flew home on Wednesday and my buddy called me to ask how many ’06 and ’07 I wanted. Happy ending!

I stopped by the Deschutes brewpub while I was on a recent pilgrimage to Bend and had three beers and a late lunch. I can't wait to return!

Service was great and, as might be supposed, the staff knew a lot about the beer being served and were able to make recommendations. There were a number of seasonal and brewpub-only beers available, a fact of which I look forward to taking advantage the next time I visit. I can't speak much to the atmosphere inside, as I drank and dined al fresco and did some people-watching in old-town Bend. Folks are friendly there, I'll give them that!

The reuben I had was so huge that I was unable to finish it, despite a long, lunchless drive from Seattle. Beware! You will have leftovers.

Food is always very good. Personal favorites include the pretzel appetizer and the mac and cheese entree.

Beer is excellent. The large beer menu offers Deschutes regular and seasonal favorites, but I always order a flight of the brewpub exclusives. These consist of beers only available at this location, and there are always some very good beers in the flight. Brewpub exclusive bottles can be purchased, as well.

Service is very good.

I visit this spot every time I'm in Bend, and I will continue to do so. Would recommend.

This was stop #26 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 and to have lunch. The pub is located in a downtown storefront-like setting among other commercial businesses. The interior is setting is two different arrangements depending on whether you sit in the front are or in the bar area. (I think there is also a large dining area off to the side too.) To us, the bar area is more fitting of a pub vibe, but where we were seated was okay too.

We ordered a sampler flight of 6 (our choice here) of the 17 beers that were available, and only one of them was a repeat (intentional) of the beers that we had at the Portland pub location. (Fresh Squeezed IPA was the repeat beer, and it did not impress me at either location, at least it didn’t live up to the amount of hype that I’ve read. However, it is a good IPA.) All of the beers were very well brewed to style or better, and we felt that the Not the Stoic Belgian-style Quad was exceptional. Our food selections were also very good.

We enjoyed this pub more than the Portland location because it was smaller with less hustle and bustle, and less noisy. The beers at each location rated out with identical scores under our rating system. This is a great pub and is highly recommended.
