On May 13th and 14th 2022, the Bend Brewfest will be showing off some of the best west coast breweries in the Old Mill District of Bend along the pretty Deschutes River.  This multi-day festival highlights a ‘who’s who’ of large and small Pacific Northwest breweries, along with their creative craft beers.

Past Brewfests have featured Oregon and Bend favorites such as Block 15, Breakside, Great Notion, Boneyard, Crux, Wild Ride, and more.

Those visiting the Bend Brewfest this year will enjoy the X-Tap program, which is like a specialty beer festival within the Brewfest.  X-Tap features small batch and experimental beers like Lump of Coal sour from Lompoc Brewing, which is an imperial porter fermented with sour cherries.  X-Tap will be found in the Market of Choice Brewtality Tent where guests can speak to the brewers of these limited release beers.

If you need a place to stay for your trip to the Bend Brewfest, we recommend booking a place as soon as possible.  This festival brings in a lot of people, so cabins and hotels book up fast.  Our favorite place to stay nearby is in a rental cabin with Sunset Lodging in Sunriver.  Sunriver is just a 20 minute drive down Highway 97 south of Bend, and is full of gorgeous cabins you can rent for the weekend to stay in with friends and family.

Sunset Lodging has dozens of cabins to choose from, including small cozy cabins perfect for two, and larger cabins for big groups.
