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!

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.

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.
