To celebrate our 25th Anniversary and in honor of our two flagship beers, we’re hosting a Black Butte to Mirror Pond Bike Ride on Saturday, June 22nd, 2013. Honestly, this is one ride you shouldn’t miss! We’ll start at Black Butte Ranch and wind our way along the dirt roads behind Sisters until we reach Mirror Pond at Drake Park in downtown Bend. Register for the ride here.
Last Friday we had the privilege of watching the powerful and talented Laura Gibson perform at our pub in Bend. Laura’s performance was the last stop on our monthly First Friday Art Walk and she helped us kick off the release of our well-loved Twilight Summer Ale. Laura’s roots run deep in our own backyard: she spent this past February at Caldera in the mountains of Central Oregon, writing and reflecting on her work. Last summer we traveled with her out to Smith Rock to record the third installment of Deschutes River Recordings, a unique partnership between Northwest musicians and the Deschutes River Conservancy to create songs by the river, for the river. We were thrilled to welcome her back to Bend to perform the latest from her album La Grande (aptly named after a small town in Eastern Oregon).
Do you ever seek out the river (or lake or ocean) to relax and unwind? Join us to celebrate our partnership with the Deschutes River Conservancy by snapping a photo of your favorite body of water. Upload the photo to Instagram with the hashtag #fortheriver.
