Busy Week in Bend


Even though they have been open for a week, Deschutes Brewery is having their official grand reopening on Wednesday, Feb 1. Their Pub Pizza is really good! Good luck getting a spot. I heard there was a huge line on Sunday just waiting for them to open. 

Brother Jon’s Alehouse put up their new signs and all of Facebook was a buzz about it.

They are opening on Wednesday with a starter menu with the hopes of offering their entire menu next Monday. If you want buffalo mac, you’ll have to head to the Public House on Galveston as the Alehouse will have a different menu but similar tastes. But you’ll still get the Brother Jon’s portions at a great price on new items like the beer battered fish and chips, ribeye and mashers, bangers and mash, pierogis, pork schnitzel sandwich, and more. 

Also, the Broken Top Bottle Shop (my bad, originally I called it Bachelor Bottle Shop – Thanks Liana for the correction) is trying to open up this week as well from what I’ve heard. The BBS took over the Abby Pub on College Way. I hear they will have bottled beer available for purchase in the old Wine Styles shop that was next to the Abby Pub and you can drink them in the restaurant side. 

And it’s First Friday this week! I actually avoid downtown on First Fridays but I know 50% of Bend residents don’t. Busy week!

It’s called “Broken Top Bottle Shop”, not “Bachelor…”, just FYI. Those two monikers get overused so much in this town I can understand the confusion.

Hello Bend Oregon Restaurant Blog-

Thanks so much for the mention!!

Broken Top Bottle Shop & Ale Café did open our Ale Café a week ago today!!! The Ale Café offers a rotating 12 tap selection of craft and specialty beer, along with wine and other beverages, to be paired with delicious, healthy food, such as smoked meats, panini sandwiches, appetizers, soups, salads, as well as awesome vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options (whipped up by Chef Bethlyn Rider).

We also have chilled single bottle and canned beer you can purchase from our coolers to drink at Broken Top Bottle Shop or take to-go. We don’t charge you a corking fee on the bottled and canned beer you buy to drink here. And, you can buy your to-go beer as single bottles or cans, mixed-and-matched in any number, 6-packs, and 12-packs.

The Ale Café portion of Broken Top Bottle Shop is only the beginning!! We’ll soon be expanding into the suite next door in order to offer you over 700 varieties of single bottle and canned beer in our retail Bottle Shop.

Check out our menu, on the info page of our facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/BrokenTopBottleShop?ref=tn_tnmn. And, please “like” us if you like what you see.

hope to you soon!
