Where to Buy “Bend Beer” for Christmas

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving yesterday, and it’s time to start thinking about shopping for Christmas. Since today is Black Friday, and Monday is Cyber Monday, I figured it’s time to recap where you buy your copy of Bend Beer: A History of Brewing in Central Oregon!

First, you can buy the book online at History Press, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and Powell’s Books, but if you’re shopping around town here in Central Oregon, you should also be able to find the book at the following places:

  • Barnes & Noble
  • Bowman Museum (Prineville)
  • Broken Top Bottle Shop
  • Central Oregon Locavore
  • Costco (possibly—they were out last I checked)
  • Deschutes Brewery (the Tasting Room)
  • Des Chutes Historical Museum
  • Dudley’s Bookstore
  • High Desert Museum
  • McMenamins Old St. Francis School
  • Paulina Springs Books (Sisters and Redmond)
  • Pine Ridge Inn
  • Redmond Craft Brewing Supply
  • The Brew Shop
  • The Growler Guys (East side)
  • Visit Bend (Bend Visitor Center)
  • Worthy Brewing

If you can’t find it at one of those locations, please let me know!

Happy holidays!

Signing at Silver Moon Brewing’s Redmond Grand Opening

This Friday, November 20, Bend’s Silver Moon Brewing is holding the grand opening party for their new Redmond production brewery (in conjunction with their annual One Beard to Rule Them All fundraising event) starting at 6pm, and I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be there as well, with books to sign and sell!

Silver Moon Redmond Grand Opening

You can learn more about Silver Moon’s expansion and plans in a post on my Brew Site blog here; it’s great to see the effort being put into revitalizing the brewery by James Watts and Matt Barrett, who bought Silver Moon in 2013, paying off! It’s also interesting to watch the “rise” of Redmond in the local beer and brewing scene, which now has four established breweries with Silver Moon becoming the fifth, as well as a growing focus on beer with pubs like The Pig and Pound and restaurants like Jersey Boys Pizza.

Come on out on Friday the 20th, party with Silver Moon and let’s talk books and beer history! See you there!
