A couple nights in Bend

Hi. So, I am moving away from the PNW somewhat soon and my wife and I are getting one last road trip in before/as we do. We’re stopping Bend for a couple nights and other than the usual suspects (Deschutes, Crux, etc) are there any pubs that the locals love even though maybe they don’t rank so high on RB?

While we both love breweries and craft beer bars, we love getting down in some local/dive bar that has a solid tap lineup.

And, my wife loves sour beers, so any recommendations for a good sour lineup is a plus, too.


One of my favorite brewery neutral bars was the Platypus Pub. They had Pliny on tap while I was there. Also a nice bottle shop upstairs. Broken Top bottle shop also now has a taproom, and a Growler Guys right across the street. Boneyard is the go to for IPAs
