Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Dogfish Head: World Wide Stout

The World Wide Stout beer holds a whopping 18 percent of alcohol, one of Bend's most cellar-worthy beer available.

When this beer burst on the microbrewing scene in 1999, it was the strongest beer around. Though other beers have since topped World Wide Stout's current 18 percent alcohol marker - including Dogfish Head's 120 minute IPA, which clocked in at 21 percent several years ago - this 70 IBU stout is still one of the most cellar-worthy beers available in Bend these days.


More so than high-alcohol-content Russian Imperial Stouts like Old Rasputin'(9 percent) or Deschutes' Abyss (11 percent), World Wide Stout is like a port. It's syrupy and hot, but the talent at Dogfish Head keeps it from being sickly sweet. The beer is kind of molten on the tongue, but has a lovely fizziness that is just plain fun to feel. It's a deep, dark brown with a ruby tinge and a thin halo of little bubbles for a head.

Putting this beer in your cellar and forgetting it for awhile will only make it better. The burn from the high alcohol content will mellow out resulting in a richer, softer feel.

Find it at The Brew Shop in 12-ounce bottles for $9.30.
