Brewer vs. brewer — The Tetherow Grill is featuring local and state breweries in a series of beer dinners and beer-infused menus, with new ones weekly at its casual pub, The Row. A “brewery smackdown” dinner in early December, pitting Bend’s Worthy Brewing against Eugene-Springfield’s Hop Valley Brewing, coincided with a transition from one beer menu to another. Scheduled in early 2016 are Pfriem Family Brewers (Hood River), Sunriver Brewing (Sunriver) and Deschutes Brewery (Bend). No further “smackdown” dinners have been announced, but they are being contemplated. 61240 Skyline Ranch Road, Bend; http://tetherow.com/go/dine/, 541-388-2582.
