September Food & Drink Events | 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.

Beer Release Party!

Caldera Brewing and Wild Ride Brewing are teaming up to bring Central Oregonians a unique new collaborative brew. Few things are as classically comforting as a good old-fashioned PB&J, right? Caldera and Wild Ride have elevated and liquified this quintessential American combo in their new Peanut Butter & Marion Berry Brown Ale! The release party will take place at Wild Ride Brewing in Redmond on Thursday, Sept. 17 from 6-8pm and again at Bend's newest food cart lot, Midtown Yacht Club, on Saturday, Sept. 19 from 5-7pm. Come down, support local and sample this innovative (however familiar) ale.
