Deschutes Brewery was founded in 1988 as a brew pub in Bend, Oregon. Family and employee-owned, the brewery is known for brewing a diverse line-up of award winning beers including the popular Black Butte Porter, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, and Fresh Squeezed IPA. From the beginning, the focus has been on crafting the best beer and food using only the finest ingredients. In 2008, Deschutes opened a second pub in Portland’s Pearl District. Deschutes Brewery now ships beer to 28 states, the District of Columbia, and around the world from its main brewing facility located on the banks of the Deschutes River.
