Bend is celebrating its well-deserved reputation for microbreweries with the Bend Brewfest this weekend. The annual festival focuses on tasting and enjoying ales and lagers, with over 80 distinct fine craft beers available for public tasting. The festival is being held at the Les Schwab Amphitheater, an easy 10 minute drive from North Rim, on Friday from 3:00 to 11:00 pm, and Saturday from noon to 11:00 pm. Family members of all ages are permitted on the grounds until 7:00 pm each night. With places to stroll along the Deschutes River and today’s beautiful clear skies and warm weather, I’m guessing it will be a very popular place to spend the evening. Hope to see you there!
