A MUST stop while in Bend.

Atmosphere is basically a small room in the front of an industrial building. But, they have all sorts of funny signs, stickers, and crap on the walls. Plus, you can see quite a bit of 3 Floyd's swag which is cool.

Quality is phenomenal. Boneyard is making kick ass beer, enough said.

Service was great! The guy and girl working the front were super cool. When the keg of RPM blew half way through my growler fill, the guy just gave me the growler for free.

Selection is a bit small. I've heard this is due to the fact that Boneyard is doing so well that they are having trouble keeping up with demand. Still, they had specials on tap that were awesome. Suge Knight Imperial Stout, Rye Bourbon Barrel Aged Diablo Rojo, and Bourbon Barrel Aged Black 13. The regulars were RPM, Diablo and Hop Venom.

Prices are very fair, we sampled 4 beers and got our growler fill (plus the 1/2 filled freebie) for $10.

Boneyard has only been around only for two years, but they are killing it when it comes to beer quality. They might be my favorite brewer in Oregon, giving Hair of the Dog and Deschutes a run for their money.

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.

This is my favorite IPA. Love, Love, Love it. I have gone from Red Wine to loving this beer and prefer it over wine!

Definitely worth a quick stop, but it's not a place meant to kill a day drinking beer.

The photo tells you all you need to know about vibe and ambience. Located in Bend's historic neighborhood, surrounded by small older homes (use your GPS to find it). I bought a growler of RPM IPA to take back to my hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope I can go back some day.
