Bend Booms with Beer!
Bend, Oregon. Bend is rapidly becoming one of the hottest places for Beer and more specifically, Breweries. Craft beers and handcrafted ales are to be found throughout Central Oregon. Gary Fish established the Deschutes Brewery & Public House as small brew pub in 1988 in downtown Bend Oregon and named it after the Deschutes River.

Destination Transportation launched JD’s Brewery Tours to offer a niche tour in Bend and surrounding areas. Bend, Oregon has been on the top of many lists as leading the state and the country in micro-beers for over two decades. For the past 25 years, beer fanatics have made their holiday seasons complete by enjoying a bottle of the Deschutes Brewery’s winter seasonal, Jubelale. Almost as anticipated as the beer itself is the beautiful labeling and packaging artwork, which features the creations of a different local artist each year. Jubelale was the very first beer to ever be bottled by the brewery in 1988. A new regional artist is commissioned every year to create an original work of art, inspired by Jubelale, to be transformed into label and packaging art. In other words, residents and visitors alike take their beer seriously and Destination Transportation will ensure they do safely and in style with JD’s Brewery Tours.

Sharing with the community is, in part, why growler stations have such footing in craft brew meccas like Bend. You can fill a 64-ounce growler or a 32-ounce growlette with your on-tap beverage of choice, including ciders and kombucha, at a number of growler fill stations that are popping up around Bend, Oregon. Oregon law has allowed breweries and taphouses to fill growlers with beer in the past, but as of last spring the floodgates opened wider when Gov. Kitzhaber signed the “Growler Bill” (aka House Bill 2443), allowing wineries, cider houses, local groceries and other licensed retailers to sell wine and hard cider in growlers to consumers.
