Deschutes puts out some top notch high quality beer. The beer selection is worth going. I've been to the Bend location multiple times and the Portland location more than that. Portland is not my thing but Bend is awesome and I'd recommend going there and visiting Sisters and camping up at Three Creeks Lake.

If you want to have a good time in BEND, OR - "SKIP THIS PLACE!!!!!!!!"

A friend, visiting Bend, and I stopped by the brewery last night (11/28) around 8 pm, we were served 1 beer each and then never addressed again. Never offered menus or anything else for that matter. We were there over an hour catching up, laughing, and trying to have a good time. When we asked for a 2nd drink the bald guy bar-tending told us he could no longer serve us and asked us to leave.

Needless to say having a bar tender insinuate you are a drunk after 1 drink did not leave a good impression of BEND on my visiting friend, and down right angered me. As a small business owner, that level of service is unacceptable and I will no longer recommend this place to friends, family, or my customers.

Never been treated like this anywhere else, guess always one bad apple in the bunch.

If you want to have a good time, laugh, and be around good people and good service, there are a lot better places in town!

Da Boss and I took the tour this past Friday.

Vibe of the tasting room was OK. Some local only taps were available and they did pour samples of BB Anniversary which was cool.

Quality of the beers are very good. It is Deschutes who over my time has had very good consistent products with the exception of the 2009 Abyss Sourgate.

Service of the ladies that run the tour and tap room was excellent. Unfortunately halfway thru the tour Da Boss was not feeling well in the room where they were cooking up a batch (high heat, humidity, and stink). The ladies took good care of her and that is appreciated!

Selection of beers in the tap room was good...maybe 12 beers in all.

Definitely recommend the tour as it provides a history of Deschutes, their approach, an overview of the brewing process, and of course 4 samples at the end of the tour. Cheers!

Very lively and loud. Took the tour, it was informative and I've been on several brewery tours, so A+ there. For such a huge operation I would have liked to see more options on tap though. 4 free samples I believe.

Free tours and 4 free samplers. The tasting room is a bit small given their popularity, but overall it was good.
