This locals-mostly pub features a pub menu with higher-end entrees including pastas and ribs. More on the traditional side, Platypus offers burgers and hot sandwiches. But beer is the main attraction with a 15-tap rotating selection and coolers full of choices upstairs in The Brew Shop.
A European-style pub and beer hall by the Bend Brew Shop team. As you might imagine, the menu is heavy on traditional pub fare, including mac and cheese, wings, burgers, salads and sandwiches, including the hot pastrami that comes with pub mustard sauce, carmelized onions and havarti cheese on a marbled rye baguette. The owners have put together a menu that goes beyond the run-of-the-mill offerings you find at some other watering holes, using many regional ingredients.
A beer joint with a Full Bar. Like a 70s rec room, this brewery is in a comfortable basement. Decent food and a remarkable selection of drafts and even more impressive amount of beer knowledge. Look for their special tastings. It is the brewer’s brewery, and includes English darts, trivia and meet the brewer tasting events.
