Deschutes Brewery is in the process of remodeling their downtown Bend Public House, and today (Monday, January 2nd) is the last day they will have the Pub open for most of the rest of January.
Accordingly, tonight they will be holding a “wall smashing ceremony” to kick off the final stages of the remodel:
This Monday we will kick off the New Year with a bang…literally. The first Locals’ Night of 2012 will be the last in the Bend Public House as we know it. Come down and join us for this monumental “Wall Smashing” ceremony on January 2nd at 9 PM as Gary Fish, owner and founder of Deschutes Brewery, takes a sledgehammer to the wall that will connect the old space with the new (see archway above). And if that isn’t enough, we’ll be tapping ONE keg of Veronica Vega’s newest creation, Imperial Bachelor Bitter, at 5pm!
There’s no definitive word on when the Pub will re-open yet (as big construction projects go, even though there’s a target deadline that doesn’t always hold for a variety of reasons) but as soon as I get word of the official date I’ll post it here.
If you’re in Bend today, get your Deschutes fix while you can! (The tasting room and Portland Pub will still be open during this time of course.)
