This is a great place to go in Bend if the more major microbrewery place is crowded. This is a place with a great patio to sit on hot summers day. Drink their Hefe, Pale Ale, or IPA and watch the day go by. They got great views of the Mirror Pond on the river that the other brewery gets its name from.

Inside there are a couple of choices for seating. In the bar area, if you want to meet folks or down in the dining room with its large picture windows and Bend views.

This place can get crowded in the evening but the wait staff are friendly and the food comes out quickly. Their calamari is about the best I've gotten here in Oregon.

I like to stay in a downtown inn within walking distance. That way I can sample more of their beers.

Very average in all regards. There are many other better places in Bend.

I stopped in a Bend Brewing Company on a recent pilgrimage to Bend. For the most part, I think it's a pretty good place. However, the couple of beers I had were OK to not-so-great. Of course, this could just have been my selections on the day I went -- the next time I'm in Bend I'll definitely give BBC another shot.

That being said, it's a great little brewery in other respects. A craft beer vibe permeates the place, and the atmosphere manages to be dim but friendly. I had a plate of nachos as a late-night snack and they definitely did the trick -- although there was enough food for a whole table of people on that plate. If there's one thing I've learned about Bend, they are not skimpy on food portions. Staff were par-for-the-course in this tourist town; friendly and ready to sell some beer.
