     I won't go on and on about how great the brewery is or give a diverse history of Deschutes and its origins, instead I will regurgitate what was already spoken about them.

"10. Deschutes Brewery & Public House, Bend, Oregon

Bend has become synonymous with rec-head culture. At Deschutes you’ll find friends recounting the day’s rides along McKenzie River Trail or how the world looked from atop one of the Three Sisters.

While the Deschutes brewery has a nice taproom, its Public House offers special brews — like cask-conditioned ales — that the brewery doesn’t."  -source,

     Congrats to Gary and the rest of the gang at the 'little' pub in Bend, Oregon.
