We’ve got 99 problems, but beer ain’t one of ’em.
Once again, our delicious local craft brews have been recognized nationally. Making the Top 10 for Livability’s ’99 Beers in 99 Cities’ list, Bend, Oregon slides in at #9:
Beer has become synonymous with Bend, Ore., home to one of the longest beer trails in the country. The Bend Ale Trail leads to 10 breweries, all of which produce high quality beer. This mountain town draws active types who take full advantage of opportunities to hike, bike and paddle. The city’s art scene has much to offer, from museums to music venues, but beer often steals the show. The Ale Apothecary’s Sahati, which is brewed in a hollowed out spruce tree, was among the city’s most celebrated beers, but you won’t be able to find it until they hollow out another tree.

It’s fair to say, Bend beer is here to stay.
It’s no coincidence that we’re known as ‘BeerTown USA’; we’ve got 21 breweries in town right now (including two right next to our Fred Real Estate Group office in Century Center: GoodLife Brewing & The Ale Apothecary. We’re also neighbors with Silipint and DrinkTanks, should you need to transport your beer home…).
We even have an entire Bend Ale Trail where you can tour local breweries via map and get prizes. [Prizes + beer? Yes, please.]
