Your support for independent local news is important.

The Source Weekly has been Central Oregon’s locally owned news outlet for over 23 years. We have always been the definition of "support local." Our success in navigating this new world is tied to the success we experience in pulling together for the common good.

Quality local journalism takes a group of dedicated reporters passionate about democracy and open government. This story is the result of our hard work, and in normal times, the result of the support of the advertisers in Central Oregon. In the age of COVID-19, however, that support has taken a hit—but that’s where you come in.

The Beer Issue

You drink it, maybe even daily. You wear the swag and you herald the scene. When you live in Central Oregon, a love of fermented beverages comes almost as natural as a daily dose of full sun.

In this year's beer issue, it's not just about flavor and the end product. Like all craft products, the process starts with great ingredients, and better yet, local ones. The "Love Behind your Beer" is ideally local love—so read on to find out how the area's producers are contributing to your beer (and cider too).

Take a look at this year's Beer Issue articles:

« How 'Bout them Apples?

« Hop to It

« Malt: The Meat in Your Beer

« Drink Like a Scientist

« The Art of Beer

« Bouborn Country Gets Flashed
