Description: Take the road less traveled and brave the “Private Road” and “No Outlet” signs— you’ll be rewarded with 20+ original craft beers on tap and an expansive panoramic view of the Cascade Mountains which, at dusk, hosts Central Oregon’s most incredible sunsets. You’ll understand why our happy hour (which we call Sundowner Hour) revolves around the sun— beer specials and $2 off starters during the half hour directly before and after Sunset each day.

If you want to go where the locals hang this is the place to be. Great selection of beer made on the bounds at the Brewery. Sit at an outside table and take in the view of the mountains. You would never find this without hearing word of mouth as it is off the beaten path.

Great friendly vibe here with a mix of locals and tourists. Open seating with several long bar height tables you might share with others if busy (and it will be), with some traditional seating and fun outdoor tables for foursomes.
The beer was creative and well crafted, including a few styles I wasn't used too. The "sampler" allowed you to choose 6 beers from their line up of 10 or 12, which is great if there are a few styles you don't want to try. The sampler size was bigger than most as well.

Food menu is tight, with no burger and fries, but fear not they have grilled hot sandwhiches and other items with nice portions.

Cool and unusual brew pub out in the industrial area. The building is amazing and a great place to sit and look out over the surrounding volcanoes of Bend. However inside is just as great. A plethora of beers are on tap and the three we tried were excellent. My wife even got tempted into buying a Growlette! Good girl! And the food is delicious. We didn't want to leave. Definitely our favourite brew pub in Bend so far.

We enjoyed our time at Crux, sat outside and appreciated the lawn games available. We appreciated good service as well. The menu was rather small for us and everyone in my party thought their food to be 'okay.' The beer, while a personal taste issue, was not our favorite in a town known for its brews.

We had a tasty and fun dinner. The choices of brews were many and varied and most importantly tasty. We enjoyed our salads and pulled pork quesadillas. We went on a Tuesday night and had no problem finding a table. Our waitress was friendly and very personable. We left happy as nd contented.
