High Desert hikes with local brewers



Because this is Bend, there is an actual organization dedicated to the your-peanut butter-fell-in-my-chocolate style serendipity that blends place-based education and craft beer. Behold: Beers Made By Walking, and you can be a part of it. BMBW has teamed up with the good folks at Oregon Natural Desert Association to organize a series of free high desert hikes, where local brewers and enthusiasts explore native flora and its implications for tasty beer. Each hike is hosted by a different local brewery. If you are interested in going, see the BMBW website for registration details.
