Join Beers Made By Walking, the Oregon Natural Desert Association, and some of Bend’s best local breweries, to sample new beers inspired by Oregon’s high desert. Meet the brewers, taste three hike inspired beers, and learn about the awe-inspiring landscapes ONDA works to protect.

Earlier this summer, we invited local brewers to go on nature hikes in Oregon's high desert and create new beers inspired by the plants identified on the trails. We collaborated with the
Oregon Natural Desert Association to host three public hikes. ONDA experts led brewers from Crux Fermentation Project, Deschutes Brewery, and Worthy Brewing Co. through current and proposed wilderness areas including the Oregon Badlands Wilderness, Scout Camp at the confluence of the Deschutes River and Whychus Creek, and Black Canyon at Sutton Mountain. Each brewery is making a new beer inspired by their respective hike.

A SNEAK PEEK
Worthy Brewing brewed “Walk on the Wild Side,” which was inspired by the Badlands, just east of the brewery. Their beer is with buckwheat, sage, local honey, and yarrow. After a hike at Scout Camp, Crux Fermentation Project brewed “Redbarn Farm,” a red Saison ale with rye, rosehips, and fermented with Brettanomyces, a wild yeast strain. Fresh off the hike at Black Canyon, Deschutes Brewery master brewer, and BMBW veteran, Veronica Vega was leaning toward making an IPA with yarrow and black currant and is putting finishing touches on the recipe.
