The vibe is all in or all out. I'm all in, being an old school punk rock kid. A dingy little 2 bay garage converted into a brewery with the lobby serving as the tap room with some awesome tunes blasting the whole time. No seats. No pints. No bull shit. $1tasters at 2 is each makes you have to try every beer they have, and at an average of $9 a crowler, your bound to take home some of the best IPA's you've ever had. A great place to hang out for a bit. All that's missing is the band. Cheers!

Having visited several other brewery establishments in Bend, OR, I expected something different. After getting my bearings I really enjoyed the intimate relaxed atmosphere. Definitely just a tasting room, don' even ask for a pint, and I highly recommend doing a full tap taster. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and quick to answer any questions. They will can up (32 oz.) your selections(s) as you wait. Really a jewel and I keep going back!

No frills growler/crowler fill room. Roughly a dozen of their beers on tap. Staff is friendly, but they're often quite busy, so there's not a lot of time for casual chit-chat. No pints; tasters only for $2 apiece. Metal/punk vibe with mostly 80s and 90s punk playing over the speakers. Beer is of course very good to great; especially their hoppy stuff. I believe they're opening a proper brewpub in the near future, which I'm very excited about.

The main focus is on the brewed product. They'll let you have as many samples as you want (within reason), only charging a buck after the first hit. I really like the smaller size, too, especially if one has to get back on the road. I think they made the right decision to skip the stools and tables, but with the level of quality, I hope they open up a place to sit and ponder.

This place was pretty disappointing. It looks like the whole purpose is to get you in and out of there as quickly as possible. They have 5 offerings on draft and you can try each for $1. Then you can either buy growlers or leave.

I visited Boneyard today during my annual pilgrimage to Bend and enjoyed it. I was rather surprised to find that the place is all of about 150 square feet, with no seating. It was rather busy today, the Friday of a long weekend, but service was efficient and friendly so the crowd wasn't a problem.

Interestingly, they don't serve pints here in the tasting room. You can get tastes (I'd say around 2oz) or growler fills -- that's it. Still, the place has a great brewery vibe with a bit of a garage atmosphere. There's Boneyard swag adorning every surface of the taproom, and it's quite charming. They only had 5 beers available, but as always with Boneyard beers the offerings were delicious.

Boneyard is kind of tucked away in a corner of a residential neighborhood, but it's well worth a stop if you're checking out the Bend scene.
