It has been way to long since I’ve had a chance to blog!! We took another great trip to Bend in January and once again had a chance to hit up some great new half pint friendly venues: Crux and Worthy. Along with this we visited some other favorites that just keep getting better and better (I’m looking at you Deschutes!).
Crux Fermentation Project
Wow! That is all that came to mind when we walked in this place. Gorgeous copper kettles line this amazing brewery. Their craft brew list is huge, and they had some of the best beers I’ve had in a long time.
We didn’t have any food, but it looked great.
The only bad part if you come with your half pint is (even though this place is huge) it is packed! They have great long family-style tables to sit at…but it might be a little crammed if you have a mobile half pint. I wouldn’t hesitate to go however because it’s great. They also have a great outdoor area—so if you come in the summer your kiddo will have lots of room to run around.

Dad’s Favorite Brew: Pleated Scotch Ale
This place is a HUGE new brewery in Bend. I have never seen anything like it. They are growing hops outside, have a green house, and have a huge brew area and a restaurant.
**Update on this! We ate food there this time and it was GREAT! The pizza was some of the best I’d had in awhile, and the people we had with us thought it was the best place we took them in Bend.
I think their food and beer just keep getting better, so this has moved to the top of my list of places you should check out in Bend if you have kids with you.
This place is very family friendly with coloring menus, running around space and a HUGE outdoor seating area.
