This is one of the breweries you kind of have to go to. Was hoping to do the brewery tour as it showed reservations online, but then they were all filled up. I dropped the girls off next door to do some shopping at the Old Mall District and I headed out to my next flight journey. I was told that due to Covid that they can’t do tours at this time but the website is challenging and thus the reason one would get their hopes up. Either way, great staff, very knowledgeable and lots of options. They just opened up their 3rd floor area with views of the mountain range’s which was great to take in. I did a sampler and found 3 of the 5 that I really liked. I’m not a sour guy, but have to say that the Kriek was really good for me; maybe a gateway sour? LOL
This location is all about the beer, but like what they’re trying to do on the 3rd floor. Great spot to try some great beers after shopping or breaking away from those that want to shop.

Thanks for the review! We are so glad you had a great experience in the Tasting Room and our new 3rd floor bar. Hopefully you can make it back when we are safely able to open up our Tours again. Cheers!

The tour included a lot of information about brewing but not so much that it was overwhelming. We received a can of beer (from several options) to sip while walking through the tour and a glass of our choice at the end. We learned about the ingredients and how they’re combined differently to make the different kinds of beer from stout to ales. Our guide, Curtis, clearly enjoyed giving the tour and knew a lot about the operation. Excellent tour!

We stopped in Bend during a recent cross country trip specifically to visit this brewery and we were not disappointed. From the moment we walked in we were greeted by people who were genuinely happy we were there. Each employee we chatted with were engaging and very knowledgable about their beer. The tour was given by a very enthusiastic Kim who not only is funny but truly loves what she does! Each question was answered and each step of the process was elaborated on. The tour itself was very informative and the 4 samples at the end is a nice way to end it. I would highly suggest a tour if in the area. Tours are free, can be booked in advance, and provide your choice of 4 5oz beer samples. They have over 15 to chose from so it makes the selection difficult but gives you a great opportunity to try new beers to see what you may want to order or purchase in the future.

Kim was a fabulous tour guide for our family of 8!! She was super knowledgable and so much fun! A great tour. Make a reservation if you can. The beers are tasty and what a nice facility. They have amazing ginger ale and root beer for the non-imbibers in the group. I would make sure to keep this in your plans.

Made a reservation online for a Sunday afternoon tour. Arrived about 10 minutes early and we were checked in and given a card for 4 samples. They could be used before the tour or after. Tried a couple of samples and then our tour was called. Jeff our guide, talked very fast and I found it hard to follow at times, but he was very informative and knowledgeable about the Deschutes Brewery products. Since we were there on a weekend, the bottling line was not operating. Tour lasted about 45 minutes and was well worth the time if you are in the Bend area. The Deschutes Brewery is now the 7th largest Craft beer brewery in the US.

Good history about the brewery, interesting info about employee perks (all beer related), terrific tour guide, and (of course) samples. I like that you preschedule on their website to ensure a spot on the tour.

Deschutes represents what craft brewing is all about: commitment to quality; desire to experiment with their brews; celebration of their crew and community.

It's a good tour - you see a lot of the brewery, get a lot of information. Our tour guide (Jason) was knowledgeable, and in the one or two instances where he didn't know an answer, he got the information at the end of the tour.

The taproom is a great place to try many of their different beers and ales.

And don't miss their restaurant downtown - good food and more beer!

Bend is a beer-lovers paradise!

Thanks for the great review! We're so happy you joined us & enjoyed your experience. Jason is definitely a Rockstar guide & we'll be sure to buy him a beer;-) We hope you'll join us in our tasting room and at our pub again the next time you're in the area, and thanks for drinking Deschutes!

Our ambassador Jeff was outstanding. Gave us lots of info about beer and Deschutes history. You don't get free samples, in fact the tour costs $5. But you do get a can of beer to drink during or after the tour. Definitely one of the better brewery tours we've been on.

I didn't think that kids would be allowed to tour the facility but I was wrong. For the most part, it was the kids who enjoyed seeing the live version of "How It's Made" that we love to watch on TV. The bubbly and friendly tour guide made us smell and taste hops, eat different variety of barley and educated us about the key ingredients of beer making. They showed us how the beer bottles get filled, capped and labeled. Afterwhich is the free tasting and I now know how to pick beers to drink next time. I bought the Black Butte Porter. I turned around and saw my kids having a free sample too! I said, what??
Don't worry, mom. It's free root beer. The tour guide gave it to us! :)
