Cascade Lakes Brewing is actually not located in Bend. GASP!! What is it doing on our site? Well, if you look up there again, you'll see that this is Bend Brew Pubs...so, not just breweries. So we included them in our bevy of Bend Brew Pubs. We're sure you'll agree that they belong. The brewery, located in Redmond, was started by three brothers in 1994 and was purchased in 2000 by Rick Orazetti and Doug Kutella. It is a 25 Barrel Brew House which can brew 775 gallon batches thrice daily. They soon expanded from just-a-brewery to the brewery and 5 pubs, one of which is featured here on our site, the Cascade Lakes Lodge which is their flagship restaurant and pub.
The Cascade Lakes Lodge, located in the SW of Bend just off Century drive is in a word, HUGE. 6,000 sq. ft. huge. This houses a restaurant, full bar, 2 billiards tables and 3 bristle board steel tip dart boards. The second floor is sizeable enough for private parties. They also have fireside dining and an outside heated patio for summer-time diners. The menu is extensive with Apps, Salads, Burger & Sandwiches, and the entree's labeled Cascade Favorites. They also offer about a dozen wines from Oregon, Washington, California and even one from Argentina. Monday through Friday they have Happy Hour from 4-6.
But we're here to talk about beer, right? So...The Big 6 are their "all the time" beers, and then there are the seasonals. All 9 of 'em. Whoo! Lets get started, shall we?
