When visiting the Barrel House in Portland, be sure to check out their food menu as well.

Boneyard Pub & Brewery - Bend, OR

Hours of Operation:

Monday – Closed

Tuesday – Thursday: 12 PM – 8 PM

Friday & Saturday: 12 PM – 10 PM

Sunday: 10 AM – 8 PM

This brewery has been around since 2010. The brewery got its name from the “boneyard” of supplies that the owner, Tony Lawrence, was able to hodge-podge together into a working brewery space. Their logo depicts the boneyard aesthetic with a skull & crossbones, and many of their beers feature dark “metal-band” branding. Boneyard is known for robust IPAs (India Pale Ales), with double and triple IPAs on their roster. On your visit to the brewery, be sure to try the Incredible Pulp – a blood orange extra pale ale with low IBUs allowing for a smooth and hoppy brew. And while you’re there, check out their food service with tasty food like their Spicy Firecracker Chicken Bowl or the Polenta Tots.


Barley Brown’s - Baker City, OR

Hours of Operation:

Monday: Saturday: 2 – 8 PM

Sunday: 12 – 5 PM

Barley Brown’s opened to the public in 1998 in Baker City, Oregon. Baker City sits 5 hours east of Portland, Oregon in the eastern part of the state. Barley Brown’s Beer started with the notion of not canning their beer. It’s a feature that has gained the brand notoriety for fresh, quality brews. Many craft-beer aficionados will trek the distance to get this coveted, taproom-only liquid. When 2020 stopped in-person drinking and dining, the owner knew he had to change his stance on canned concoctions. After a few short stints of canning their beer, Barley Brown’s is back to in-person-only consumption. Barley Brown’s Beer is known for its full-bodied IPAs like the Pallet Jack IPA and their HeadShake Double IPA. Stop into this spot on your next road trip through Oregon! 


Deschutes - Portland, OR

Hours of Operation – Deschutes Public House in Bend, OR:

Daily: 11:30 AM – 9:30 PM

You haven’t had an Oregon beer until you’ve had a Deschutes. As one of the early pioneers of craft brews, Deschutes has something for everyone on its roster. The brewery is named for the Deschutes River that flows through Bend, Oregon. Deschutes now has four different tasting rooms, two in Portland and two in Bend, Oregon. One of the very first beers that Deschutes brewed was the Black Butte Porter. This complex, roast-y porter was a hit among all who tried it, especially women who became the top buyer of the beer. With many taprooms to choose from, Deschutes is a must on your Oregon road trip!
