Crux Fermentation Project is the newest operating brewery in Bend. They opened their doors Saturday June 30th! The 3 founders are Larry Sidor, Dave Wilson & Paul Evers, each with a background in the brewing business. The plan is to focus on the unusual, to quote from their website: "From decoction mashing, open fermentation, barrel aging, crazy yeast varieties, and the use of experimental hops we hope our project delivers beers that will take you on a ride!"
Capacity will start out with a few thousand hectoliters (They are determined to remain a metric brewery), with plans to quickly expand to 11,000 hectoliters (just shy of 7,000 barrels).
There is plenty of seating, and as the brewery is operating right next to the seating area, you get to smell all the hoppy wonderfulness and yeasty goodness going on.
20-oz. pints are $5, and although right now they only have 32-oz. "Growlerettes" (the 64-oz. ones are coming), they are only $6 to buy and $5 to fill, so come on down and get yourself one filled up!
Below are the hours of operation, and all hours are kid-friendly!
