The Old Mill District on Thursday is releasing its annual limited edition pint glasses.
This year the glasses are Silipints, which are silicone, BPA-free pints made by a Bend-based company. They come in four different designs: earth, air, water and fire. A winter scene reflects air, summer is earth, lakes and rivers represent water and mountains serve as the backdrop for fire.
The pints will premier at the Fermentation Celebration on Thursday in the Old Mill District. They cost $10 each or $38 for a set of four.
They will be available for purchase starting Friday at Visit Bend, the Central Oregon Visitors Association and the Ticket Mill. They’re also available at several restaurants: the air pint at Red Robin, earth pint at Greg’s Grill, fire pint at Hola! and water pint at Anthony’s.
One pint can also be had for free. To get one, bring a Les Schwab Amphitheater ticket and $100 in combined receipts, or just $150 in combined receipts dating back to May 15, from any Old Mill District shop, restaurant, gallery or cinema to the Ticket Mill or COVA.
The Old Mill District also is selling the Silipint designs as posters. They’re $10 each from the above locations or free from the Ticket Mill or COVA with $100 in combined receipts.
