In 1988, Gary Fish established a small brewpub in downtown Bend, Oregon and named it after the iconic waterway flowing through town, the Deschutes River. With a belief that good beer brings people together, Gary founded The Deschutes Brewery & Public House as just that – a home for the public. A community gathering place, where friends, family and strangers could come together over some great food and a house-brewed pint of beer.
In its first year, the public house sold 310 barrels of beer. Today, the brewery sells more than 225,000 barrels of beer each year and Deschutes can be found in 32 states and even a few countries. Over the years, Deschutes Brewery’s expanded beyond the original pub with a brewery and tasting room less than a mile across town on the banks of the Deschutes River in Bend and a second pub in downtown Portland.
What's On Tap
Black Butte XXXV – 11% ABV / 40 IBU
- To celebrate Deschutes’ 35th anniversary, we sought inspiration from a rich and bold German confection, the Black Forest cake. Black Butte Porter lays the framework for a perfect fusion of flavors with cocoa, tart cherries, vanilla and a hint of warm Bourbon. Cheers to 35 years!
King Crispy Pilsner – 4.8% ABV
- Light grainy pils malt, flowery, spice hops, no esters and a crisp finish. This award winning pilsner was named to establish its lineage over famed domestic lagers. All hail the King of Crispy Boys!
