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.

Tyler and the gang at Sliver Moon have served up another winner with this smooth-drinking specialty ale. Micro Cosmos isn't a huge fan of the brown style, which tends to lack the personality of other ales. But Brown Eyes manages to inject some personality into this brew by going for a high gravity approach (7.5% alcohol) that makes liberal use of its signature ingredient, Black Strap molasses. The brewery is producing the Brown Eye's in a limited run (only 20 barrels worth). It's available on draft exclusively at the brewery's tasting room on Greenwood through the rest of the month and likely into March. Silver Moonies can also find the Brown Eyes in the 22 oz bottles at most of the local grocers and beer outlets. Owner Tyler Reichert said the brewery is planning to roll out more specialty beers in the coming months including a yet-to-be named 8.5 percent Imperial IPA that will launch in March and an Imperial Pilsner.
