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.

Let There Be Sixers!

An easy way for readers to get their fresh-hop fix.


If you didn't pick up last week's paper, you missed our story about the growing fresh-hop craze among local brewers who went hop wild earlier this fall, picking hundreds of pounds of hops that flavored more than a dozen different seasonal brews. If you haven't had a chance to taste any of these concoctions, you should hurry because they won't be around much longer. For the lazy and the homebound, there is thankfully another option. Deschutes Brewery announced that it is releasing a limited run of its acclaimed Hop Trip, the granddaddy of Bend's fresh-hop beers. The brew is the first fresh-hop variety to be released locally in six-packs and should be hitting store shelves this week, according to the brewery. But don't delay, because these freshies won't last long. (EF)
