Bend Brewing 20th anniversary beer list

With Bend Brewing Company‘s 20th anniversary party coming up this Friday, they are planning on “20 beers for 20 years”—meaning yes, they will have 20 beers available on tap. That’s a mini-brewfest all their own! Head brewer Ian Larkin posted on Facebook a list of the beers that he’ll be putting on tap for Friday, including the uber-special ones, so I thought I’d re-list them here.

  1. High Desert Hefeweizen
  2. Metolius Golden Ale
  3. Elk Lake India Pale Ale
  4. Outback Old Ale
  5. Pinnacle Porter
  6. Big Eddy English Pale Ale (aka Bitter)
  7. “M.C.” Session IPA
  8. Doppelbock
  9. Pollen Oates Oatmeal Stout
  10. Scottish Heart Scotch Ale
  11. Volkksekt Berliner Weisse
  12. Raven Baltic Porter (Bourbon Barrel Aged)
  13. Wicked Medicine Belgian Strong Ale
  14. Outback X Strong Ale
  15. Ching Ching
  16. Moon Tang “Tree D.A”
  17. Big Bad Russian Imperial Stout
  18. Scarlet Imperial Red
  19. Salmonberry Sour
  20. Lovely Cherry Baltic Porter
  21. Tainted Love (soured Lovely)
  22. HopHead Imperial IPA
  23. 20th Anniversary Outback XX – Brett-fermented Pinot barrel aged Strong Ale

Yes, technically that is 23 beers… the first five are the house signature brews that Ian posted would be on tap as well, so I extrapolated. With 10 taps inside and 10 taps outside, expect several of these beers to rotate out throughout the night.

And it gets better! That 20th anniversary Outback XX is a collaboration between Ian Larkin and former BBC brewer Tonya Cornett, and there will be a limited run of 100 bottles available for purchase. They posted a picture too:

Bottles go on sale at 11:30am on Friday, so if you want one don’t wait, they might very well go quick.
