Bend, Oregon is one our favorite towns to visit. We have been going there for many years for one of our little getaways. We actually stay in Sunriver - a very nice resort area about 14 miles south of Bend. We naturally gravitated to the Deschutes Brewery because of Hubby John's appreciation of good ales. His favorites have always been the Obsidian Stout and the Black Butte Porter. I am not really a beer drinker so it works out just fine for us. He enjoys his ale and I drive us home. What I am attracted to at the Deschutes Brewery & Public House is the food and the comfortable friendliness. www.deschutesbrewery.com (check out this link to read their blog, which even includes some great recipes that they are willing to share) I usually order from their specialty menu of the day but my dependable favorite is their French Onion Soup. It is a yummy comfort food that I adore. On our last visit John and I both had the French Onion Soup and we shared their specialty of the day - fish tacos. We really enjoyed both. Those of you that read my blog have seen that we both really like fish tacos.
Anyway, back to business, and I want to say now that this blog is strictly my opinion and there is no money changing hands except for when we paid our tab.
As usual, our visit to the Brewery was great. I mentioned to our waitress, Kate, that I have this little blog and that I would like to mention them on it. Well, she told the owner and founder Gary Fish (who just happened to be there having his lunch too) and he very graciously came to our table and talked with us. I really was very impressed that he took the time to visit with us - what a nice man. We also met the general manager, Tim Casinelli, and he was also very friendly and interesting. We have always enjoyed the Deschutes Brewery and Public House and we will always stop in when we are in the Bend area. It has been fun to see them grow and thrive in one of our favorite towns. If you happen to be in their area we strongly suggest you stop in and enjoy the friendly family atmosphere and their great drink and food. Oh, say hello for me... Grammy
