Don’t tell the cops, but get this: Deschutes Brewery, despite boasting a bevy of tasty beers, is underage. The Bend-based brewing company turns 21 on Saturday, and they’re throwing a party in the lot behind the downtown pub to celebrate.
Festivities will kick off at noon with the tapping of the first keg of Black Butte XXI, an imperial version of Deschutes’ Black Butte Porter. At the same time, live music will begin, played by Tuck and Roll at noon, Goodbye Dyna at 1:30 p.m., Blackstrap at 3 p.m. and How About No at 4:30 p.m. From 6 to 10 p.m., local rocker Scott Fox will perform.
Other stuff planned for the party includes an appearance by Woody, the traveling bar in a barrel, plus hot food from the grill and bartenders pouring a whole flock of the brewery’s Reserve Series beers.
Deschutes Brewery’s 21st Birthday Party ; noon-10 p.m. Saturday; free; Deschutes Brewery Pub, 1044 N.W. Bond St., Bend; www.deschutesbrewery.com.
