Wild Ride Brewing
332 SW 5th St., Redmond
With 10 in-house taps and 2 guest taps serving local ciders, the transformed Redmond Parr Lumber building serves as the newest addition to the craft brewing community in Central Oregon. The locale also features various menus from the rotating food trailers outside the brewery. Redmond's new version of The Lot? See for yourself. Wild Ride Brewing is now open seven days a week at 11 am.
Dogwood Cocktail Cabin
147 NW Minnesota
This new farm-to-shaker bar is finally open after months of renovation to the space neighboring Barrio in downtown. Dogwood Cocktail Cabin is ready to make its debut outside of its flagship location in Crested Butte, Colo., offering a globally-inspired menu of small plates and an ambience that is both a throwback to Bend's logging past and a nod to hip, nostalgic repurposing. Dogwood Cocktail Cabin opens Tuesday May 13, 4 pm.
63067 Plateau Dr.
"At this point, we make 15,000 barrels (of beer) and we're looking to triple that," said Boneyard Beer co-owner Melody Storey. The Bend brewery has applied for a liquor license to establish a new production facility on the city's northeast side. The main reason for the move, she said, is that Boneyard just can't keep up with demand for its suds. And with the new digs, provided the application's approved, the brewery will look at distribution beyond Oregon and Washington State.
Cider House Rules
64682 Cook Ave., Tumalo
It'll be a "growler-style pick up place" with an emphasis on cider and kombucha, bucking the beer focus in Central Oregon. Bruce Moon, who's currently negotiating the county licensure process to open Cider House Rules (which has nothing to do with the John Irving book) in Tumalo, said there might be at least a few beers available, but he hasn't quite planned that far ahead. He just likes the idea of occupying a cidery niche in Deschutes County.
