Along with a custom-designed Ale Trail Cooler, guests who book the Bend Ale Trail Packge here: http://www.bendsuites.com/bend-downtown-featured-special.aspx will receive a $10 gift card to one of our favorite breweries, giving you the perfect excuse to trek the largest beer trail in the west, also known as the Bend Ale Trail.
Using the Bend Ale Trail Atlas and Passport, craft beer lovers can trek between Bend's 11 breweries (or 12, if you count the neighboring brewery for extra credit!) for a taste of central Oregon's unique craft brewery culture. While sampling different ales and ciders, visitors can get a sneak peek at the cutting-edge brewing techniques used by the Bend beer scene as well as the style and taste that differentiates a Bend brew.
After visiting each brewery, make sure to get a stamp in your Bend Ale Trail Passport. Once filled, you can bring it by the Bend Visitor Center for a commemorative Bend Silipint, perfect for beer drinkers on the go. Plus, for those looking for a little something extra, don't forget to stop by the neighboring Sisters for your 12th and final stamp - then you're in for a real treat!
Just pick up your official Bend Ale Trail atlas at one of the participating brewery's kiosks, the Bend Visitor Center, or any Central Oregon brochure rack. There's even a free app for those wanting a "virtual" passport on their phone, so what are you waiting for? Let the beer-fun begin!
