Ten Top American Breweries Worth a Visit according Forbes include Deschutes Brewery


Get out of the bar and behind the scenes with Forbes Travel Guide’s list of 10 top American microbreweries worth a visit—and a taste.

Forbes notes that “though most restaurants might not have cicerones (read: sommeliers for beer) working the dining room floor quite yet, American craft breweries are creating an exciting collection of artisanal, local and limited edition brews that could elevate humble beer from a drink to swill to something to savor.” The listing described Deschutes Brewery:

Deschutes Brewery, Bend, Oregon

Oregon is a mecca for craft brew enthusiasts, so it’s no surprise to find Deschutes Brewery nestled in the picturesque mountain town of Bend. The brewery makes bold, experimental batches like The Abyss dark stout, as well as some of the industry’s most beloved brews, like the Black Butte Porter. Open-to-all-ages tours are offered daily, where all the details of brewing are revealed. Afterward, guests can pick up bottles at the gift shop or try the brews on tap at the nearby pub.

Stay: The Oxford Hotel in downtown Bend has a sleek design that still fits with the town’s folksy persona (think organic bedding and wood cabinetry).
