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

If you ever find yourself within a 100 mile radius of Bend, Oregon you must visit. There are oodles of craft brewers with fine custom ales that sit along side the ourstanding Boneyard Beer Company, a diamond in the rough of a town that should rename itself to Beer, Oregon.

I'm from Oregon; the hardest part of moving to Los Angeles was saying goodbye to Boneyard. I would drive three hours just to get my growler filled, visiting family was a bonus. Boneyard's beer is that good. Boneyard is a relatively new brewery with only three years under their belts, but in that small amount of time they have created fine beers, a following and reputation that can only be described as legendary.

When you arrive at their modest facility, tucked away in a residential area like most of the coolest businesses in Bend, you'll hear route 97 roar across the road while the smell of hops drift toward you in a wash of burnt popcorn. Their tasting room is small and cozy, but it makes the experience that much more unique. A dry eraser board is updated daily with whatever brews are available. The demand for Boneyard is so high that they will frequently run out within a few hours of opening. Locals make the trip regularly to get an extremely cheap growler fill, only $9 for a full. Their specialty brews will set you back $13. One free taste is included with your visit, and for only $1 a pop you should definitely try everything on the board.

My personal favorites are the RPM IPA, Skunkape, and Hop Venom. Just like bigfoot, the Skunkape is elusive so if you get a chance to try it you are a lucky soul indeed.

Boneyard just finished their bottling facility and will be bottling their special brew very soon, so stay tuned for updates on the amazing stuff in a store near you!

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!

Stopped in here on our way to Medford, from Portland. Shot out from Eugene, the mountain road takes a while but the views are worth it.

Main reason was to get a coveted growler of Hop Venom; mission accomplished. Great stuff!

This is a very small place , but it offers a great experience, try beers , shop the merch, friendly service, good atmosphere.

Cannot wait for another chance to get out here, bought a taster glass, shirt, and a hat, too.
