This Saturday the 9th, Deschutes Brewery is debuting their latest big project at their production brewery on Simpson Avenue: their mobile Street Pub. It’s a pretty ambitious effort to take on the road (and this from the brewery that built a giant traveling pub in the shape of a beer keg).
We’re shutting down the streets in cities across the United States this year with our newest traveling event called: Street Pub – Crafted for Community. We’re kicking off a soft opening in the home of brewery, right here in Bend! For the first time in it’s entirety, you’ll see the 400+ foot bar set up creating a pub of epic proportions. The bar is crafted from reclaimed wood and steel from right here in Oregon and the Street Pub is a one stop shop to try lots of our beers – from the coveted Reserve Series rarities (think The Abyss) all the way to year-round favorites like Black Butte Porter and Mirror Pond Pale Ale. We’ll pair these beers up with culinary creations from Chef, Jeff Usinowicz, and add in some live local music and tie it in with a non-profit partner.
This one of a kind block party is truly, “crafted for community.” Grab your friends and family and come see what it’s all about.
In Bend, partners from the Central Oregon Beer Angels and Boys and Girls Club of Central Oregon will be volunteering at the taps, with proceeds benefiting local children’s programs through the Boys and Girls Club.
The Bend Street Pub will feature 40 taps of Deschutes Brewery’s beers you know and love (think everything from The Abyss to Mirror Pond Pale Ale), plus food from The Pizza Cart, Parrilla Grill, and the locals’ favorite pub fare from Deschutes Brewery corporate executive chef, Jeff Usinowicz. Live music by Portland, Oregon’s “junkbox blues” group Hillstomp and Central Oregon’s new twang rock band WoeBeGone will keep attendees moving.
The fun is taking place from 5 to 9pm Saturday, and I’m pretty sure you’re going to want to come check this out.
