After retiring from 26 years as an Air Traffic Controller and moving to Bend, Steve unleashed his creative side and started home brewing. Discovering he had a knack for making very drinkable beer (as our neighbors on 3rd Street would say) Steve designed and built a two barrel, nano-brewery on his property in Bend’s westside. He started Kobold Brewing in 2015 and turned his small brewery into a successful and busy operation.
What's On Tap
Lawful Evil Russian Stout – ABV 11.8% | IBU 47
- Inspired by brewers in the 1800’s to win over the Russian Czar, this is the king of stouts. Black as the sky on a moonless night, this big beer boasts complex flavors of raisin, fig and chocolate. The massive body balances the big alcohol to make this a delicious brew that you can cut with a knife. We took this big beer and aged it for almost a year in bourbon barrels, which created big bold delicious barrel flavors of vanilla, anise, dark fruit and wood.
Brimstone Red Ale – ABV 6.3% | IBU 25
- Pine, floral and citrus aromas, greet you as you take your first sip. The Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial dry hop additions give this beer an amazing up front impact. It has a perfect malty red body and just the right bitter finish. The hops and malts balance well and make this a very enjoyable red ale.
