Whether Sunriver is your destination or you're just passing through, chances are good you're making a stop at Sunriver Brewing. How do we know? This year, the budding brewery claims the lunch, dinner, and bar categories.
Though it only started production in January 2014, the brewery is already expanding, doubling its capacity to 5,000 barrels per year before the two-year mark. It also added a new offering to its beer list—sours.
"Sour beer is becoming more popular in the Northwest every day" says Ryan Duley, director of sales and marketing for Sunriver Brewing.
Aside from that new endeavor, Sunriver is just keeping pace with its two popular year-round beers, Vicious Mosquito IPA and Fuzztail Hefeweizen, as well as a selection of seasonal ales.
Of course, it's not all about the beer. The brewpub serves as a hub for the resort town, welcoming locals and visitors alike. The menu spans a range of sophisticated offerings, from IPA-battered Portobello mushroom fries and fried avocado to fresh salads and grilled steelhead, and, did we mention everything is made from scratch?
Plus, the remodeled dining area has minimized the cacophony that comes with large crowds and added a play zone for kiddos, so everyone can enjoy their meal in a relaxing way.
