Crater Lake Spirits Tasting Room - Downtown Bend's Waiting Room

Crater Lake Spirits has an amazing tasting room in downtown Bend.  Located right next door to the Deschutes Brewery Pub, Crater Lake Spirits is often dubbed the Waiting Room for Downtown Bend.  Many of the downtown eateries don't take reservations and there is almost guaranteed to be a wait during summer months.  So put your name on the list and head over to the tasting room at 1024 NW Bond St for a delicious mini cocktail while you wait for your table.  Some other Crater Lake Spirits highlights are Flight Night every Monday with free tasters, live music every other Monday, kid friendly (just not at the bar), and an amazing selection of both Crater Lake Spirits and their signature mixers.  Save yourself a trip to the liquor store and wait for your table in style.  They even offer their pints in plastic bottles so you can take them on your outdoor excursions.  Crater Lake Spirits truly embodies the Spirit of Adventure.

Cascade Lakes Brewing - The Lodge

Whether you're coming down from a day on the mountain, heading back to town after a hike on the Upper Deschutes River Trail, or just finished soaking up the sun at one of our many lakes; The Lodge is the first brewery you'll hit as you come down Century Drive.  Cascade Lakes Brewing has been a Bend staple for over 25 years.  The Lodge has fantastic food, a great staff, outdoor seating, a full bar, and often times less of a wait than the downtown breweries. Want to try their beer at home?  It's distributed and sold in six states including Washington, Oregon, California, Alaska, Idaho and Montana. Cascade Lakes brews five beers year-round: Blonde Bombshell, 20” Brown, Pineapple Kush, Hopsmack IPA, and Salted Caramel Porter. When you visit The Lodge, make sure to check out their rotating tap list for something you can only get locally.
