Default Trip to Bend, OR

Hello folks! I'll be taking the family on a last minute getaway to Bend Or next week. Instead of our usual whirlwind tour we're just staying in the same B&B for a week and enjoying the area. So what are your thoughts on the local brews? I know the "Ale Trail" is a big thing there but other than Deschutes Brewing I have not heard of any other beer there. Input is appreciated. Thanks!

It's a shame you couldn't arrive at least one day earlier. Bend Brewfest

Haven't hit Good Life yet, but hearing great things, especially about the menu. 10 Barrel is a lot of fun, great food, and rotating cask beers. Old Mill Brew Werks just got voted best IPA in Central Oregon by a local panel for the Bend paper. Get a cheap ($6) growler fill at Boneyard on Wednesday. If you're up for a 20 mile drive, Three Creeks out in Sisters has great beer. They came in a very close second place for Central Oregon IPA. Edit - can't believe I left out Silvermoon. The brewers, Tyler and Brett are awesome, they bring so much info to our club meetings, so if you get a chance to chat with either of them, they are a fountain of information for any brewer.
