Cramped tap room with only 5-6 beers on tap. Wide range of bizarre merchandise with their logo on it. Tasters are pretty much all that is available as there is nowhere to sit down and have a pint. Tasters came in ridiculously small mini pilsner glasses. What is this, a beer for ants!? Bartender/growler fill person had a bit of a ’tude but that sort of works with their road hog motorcycle theme. Growler fills and glass were not cheap. Beer quality was high for their hoppy stuff. Everything else was okay.

Small, ’garage’-like taproom. We weren’t even sure if we had gone to the right place to be honest, it does not seem like a brewery should be set up there. 4 taps, all great beers. Try the Notorious! It blew me away! Not really any seating, some schwag for sale. Staff was a bit abrupt and rude to everyone that came in. Not a place to go for anything other than the KILLER beers! Definitely stop to grab a growler and go, not stay and kick it. Highly recommend the beer.

(Visited 05/2013 - Stop #4 on the Bend Ale Trail): Boneyard is a small brewery right off the Bend Parkway on Lake Place, practically in a residential neighborhood. There is a small lot in front of the building.
The outside has an industrial look and there is a cool old truck and motorcycle outside with their logo on them. Inside opens to a small tasting room with merchandise and a walk up bar. The brewery is accessible through a doorway. Behind the bar is a collection of growlers to go, a TV and a whiteboard listing the available beers. They really play up the whole skull/biker thing too.
Boneyard has 4 or 5 of their beers on tap including Diablo Rojo, a Mosaic Session Pale and RPM IPA on my visit. The beers are all decent.
Service in the tasting room was good. The bartender was friendly and was more than happy to talk about the beer scene.
Boneyard does not offer food.
Overall this is a cool place to visit in Bend.

The numbers are a little unfair considering what this is, but the rating system does not allow for this type of establishment.
This is a tiny room, to sell product and taste their wares. Ambiance is not relevant in a place this small, there is not even chairs or a place to write a review. Service was pleasant and selection was limited to the board which when I went was 4 styles. Prices are great at $8 a growler and discounts on certain days. Tasting is $3 for 4. Overall the beer was OK depending on taste, and I would recomend stopping by.

Ok, this is just a storage shed that Boneyard has turned in to a brewery. There were 6 tap handles serving 3 beers. I skipped the IPA and had the Funky Bunch and Rioja Red. The Red was pretty good but the Funky was obviously an experiment. Despite the closet sized tasting room, the place was VERY crowded. That takes away from any real experience the place may have otherwise offerred.

If you can only go to one brewery in Bend, this is the one. Boneyard has only been on the scene for a short while and they are certainly buzzing. The beer the produce is incredible and they have easily reached high in my favorite Oregon breweries.
They will be moving and expanding soon, so I imagine a visitor’s experience may change too. But right now it’s a small tasting room that’s adjacent to the production side. Fun, laughable servers that love to talk about the brewery is a plus. First beer is on the house too!
Plenty of swag to purchase, shirts, hats, cozies, growlers, mason jars, etc. Growler fills were cheap too. $8 a fill, $10 for anything imperial.

One of the highlights of our Oregon trip. Didn’t know much about this place but it’s on the Ale Trail so we gave it a shot. Off the beaten path but not a far walk from downtown. Warehouse/garage type setting with a nice small tasting room with growlers and kegs to go. The service was superb, we got free samples of everything they had on tap and they let us know where to find some of their other beers around town that they were sold out of (Suge Knite, Armored Fist). Selection was decent but you can tell they are having trouble keeping up with demand, that is because their beer is so freaking good. Oh yeah, the beer, their IPA’s are amazing, the regular beers are great and the other beers we seeked out were excellent too. Value is crazy, $6 growlers on Wednesday and $8 on all the other days, for the quality of beer this is insane. Overall just an amazing place, for all Bend has to offer this place really stood out to me, I will go back for sure.

Found this through talking to the locals. There is a very small tasting room that supplies all of their beers for a free tasting, You can also get growlers to go (bring your own) for a mere $6 on Wednesday, $8 the remainder of the week. In a small industrial area through the back of a neighborhood, it is probably a 7-8 block walk from Deschutes downtown.
A husband and wife team that currently produces a very competent Schwarzbier, Pale Ale and Cherry Wheat, they currently only keg to some local joints and sell growler out of their tasting room.
