I received a couple of emails today regarding Central Oregon’s newest microbrewery, Three Creeks Brewing Company, located in Sisters. The first was from Wade Underwood, the owner, letting me know that they are officially open for business (a few weeks early).
The other was from Geoffrey of AllAroundBend.com, with a mini-review:
Three Creeks Brewery in Sisters is open as of today!
They had a real nice black ipa, a so-so blonde, and a good pale ale. Half a dozen other beers to come in the upcoming month.
Food was decent, staff was kinda green though. Overall a great addition to the beer scene. Definitely a good thing for Sisters.
Best part is they have a mug club where for $75 a year all pints are upgraded fro 16 to a 21oz, free merchandise, special pairing dinner initiations, etc. Looks like a great deal for locals.
(Emphasis mine. Naturally, I’m most interested in hearing about the beers.)
TCBC is located on the east side of Sisters, near the town’s (only) movie house in their FivePine development. It’s facing Highway 20. The theme is rustic, Old West livery stable. Some details from one of our local papers:
[T]he 6,000-square-foot facility will provide a full restaurant, a 10-barrel brewing system, a large bar area with large screen plasma TVs, two pool tables and a large patio.
I’ve said it before, Central Oregon is definitely becoming a beer destination; with Three Creeks we’re up to seven breweries now. I’m hoping the Sisters location will be successful because it’s definitely a town where a brewery could do well, I think.
