Why Whole Flower Hops You Ask?

“Deschutes Brewery has used whole leaf hops (and have invested heavily behind them) from day one because we believe they yield a better beer with  better flavor. It is interesting to note that, when we believe we can get better flavor we have, and do, use some pellets and even extract.

Keep the Mirror Pond Flowing

Flowing lazily through Bend thanks to a small dam, the otherwise wild and turbulent Deschutes River pools up to form the serene Mirror Pond. Sitting at the heart of downtown Bend, this beautifully reflective pond provides locals and visitors with the perfect summer stroll amid the massive Ponderosas along the bank.
