Little Bites: Inaugural High Desert: Oregon Distillers Festival | Chow | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

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.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

cMenamin's Old St. Francis School is hosting its first distillers festival Saturday., Oct.7. Visitors can sample more than 120 craft spirits from over 20 Oregon Distillers. The evening includes a silent auction where visitors can bid on exclusive prizes such as private distillery tours and tastings, limited edition bottles and overnight stays. Tickets are $35 for 10 tokens or samples.

If you are a McMenamins Whiskey fan (we know there are a ton of you in town), the new Billy Rye Whiskey will be available for purchase before its Oct. 20 launch.



That means you know you'll get a bottle—they've been known to sell out!

Tickets available at mcmenamins.com
