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.

Summer Beer Season

There are plenty of solid summer beers, and some beers that just go well with summer.


I'm the kind of beer drinker who looks forward with more anticipation to fall and winter beer season than I do summer ales. I like big, opaque, high-alcohol beers that go great with holiday sweaters and large plates of hors d'oeuvres. Honestly, the sight of a lemon wedge on the rim of a beer glass just makes me shiver. But I digress. There are plenty of solid summer beers, and some beers that just go well with summer. But I always look forward to the release of Twilight Summer Ale, a beer that to me says it's time for short-sleeved mountain biking and evening fly fishing. In other words, summer in a bottle. Something we could use more of around here. Keep your eye out for this seasonal brew in the next few weeks when it is scheduled to make its first appearance. Hopefully, right in time for, well, not winter.
