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.

Jubelale Art Tour

For over 15 years, Jubelale lovers have enjoyed the art on the outside of the bottle almost as much as the art inside the bottle. Each year, a different Oregon artist designs a winter-inspired label to adorn this festive holiday ale.
