A small "hole in the wall" is right. I parked half a block away and I walked right by it twice. Nice, cozy, interior with lots of rustic wod but not run-down. Late night menu was all that was avalibel when I went and even though it was 3 min till closing, tatsed fine. The wait staff was friendly and helpfull with our large party ording mainly samplers and snacks. A few TVs but not anoying. Nice place.

Pretty nice place down by the river. Some outdoor seating and a long narrowish bar and seating. They did a nice sampler of all their beers for 18$: a bit pricy but they were big samples. Very good service. All the beers were fine, so quite good, all clean and tasty.

Not as enamored with this place as much as others. Came recommended, and the location is great, but other than that, wasn’t really impressed. Food was ok, service mediocre, as was the beer. Nothing stood out, as opposed to Crux and Deschutes (right around the corner)...

Visited a little after opening at noon on Thursday 23/05/13/
2 roomed venue with a patio at the rear where we sat and soaked up some rays.
10 beers on tap, no world beaters but most were solid enough.
Place was moderately busy, friendly service, all 10 beers available in a tasting flight.
Bottles and merchandise to go.
Not a must visit venue if you’re on a whistle stop tour of Bend but if you have the time it’s a solid enough stop.

Decent but busy brewpub in Bend. Taps limited to house brews, but pretty robust selection.. Nice view of river from patio.

Fairly nondescript place along the river. Sort of staid, "granite" cinder block walls. Not very busy on an early Sunday afternoon. A decidedly older crowd than at most places in town. Three sports TVs, and "Dad Rock" (Aerosmith and Springsteen) on the sound system. Sampler sets: 10 5-0z. glasses for $18. The beers were mostly unexceptional -- fairly regular range of styles and not pushing things too far. Service seemed good at first, but then the server kept coming back every 15 minutes or so to ask about our food order, even though we said we’d come only for the beer, and she made a sotto voce rude comment as we were ready to leave. If you’re doing the "Ale Trail" thing, you need to visit this place. Otherwise, there are much better places to go in Bend.

Première place visité lors de notre soirée .... Nous étions sur la terrasse avec presqu’une vue sur l’eau et sur un monsieur qui pelletait quelque chose .... La choix de bière est varié mais je dois dire qu’il n’était pas tous à mon goût .... La nourriture était moyenne et service excellent ; Mention d’honneur à la Old Ale (qui ressemblait davantage à un Alt mais très bonne )

(Visited 05/2013 - Stop #1 on the Bend Ale Trail): Located on Brooks Street near Mirror Pond. Street parking is available in the immediate area.
The interior of the brick building contains a large multi-level room that has a bar on the upper level and tables and booths on the lower level.Brewing equipment is visible through windows on the upper level. There is a patio outside as well.
Bend Brewing has 10 house beers on draught and are available in a sampler. Standard styles like IPA, Porter and APA alongside more unique beers like an Espresso Stout and Berliner Weisse. The beers are all solid with maybe one or two exceptions.
Service on a weekend afternoon was good. Our server was knowledgeable about the beers and was attentive throughout our visit.
Food at Bend Brewing is pretty good. We enjoyed our lunch.
Overall this is a good beer spot to hit in Bend.

One of my favorit places in Oregon. Very innovative beers and a quite big selection - IPA’s (Hop Head) are my favorites. Seems they have won a few prices already. Great to see there are more and more great femal brewmasters coming up. Very nice service as well.

Came in right before closing on what had apparently been a busy night. The dining area was still wrecked but we sat at the bar and the bartenders were friendly and helpful.
Decent selection of their own brews.
Prices seemed average.
Came here after Deschutes after a really long day of traveling- so I wish I had been fresher to enjoy it more, But even so, glad we made it.
