Deschutes BreweryAre you looking for something to do in Bend, Oregon that has something to do with craft beers? Well, you are not the only one! Bend is famous for its beers, and some of the most popular beers that come from Bend are made at the Deschutes Brewery. You can take a free guided tour of the brewery, and get four complimentary beer samples as a bonus!

The Deschutes Brewery is located along the scenic Deschutes River in beautiful Bend, Oregon, and it is where all the award-winning beers are brewed.
