Beer lovers can see Mirror Pond — virtually

Virtual reality video provides a tour of beer’s namesake location

Fans of Deschutes Brewery and Mirror Pond can view the next installment of virtual reality tours that showcase Oregon landmarks.

The video is available on YouTube at youtu.be/fFuW0wN2neo It can be viewed as a 360-degree tour using a mobile phone, or with a mobile phone and viewer like Google Cardboard or Oculus Rift as an immersive experience. Impossible Engine, a Bend firm that specializes in computer animation, produced the virtual-reality tour. In July, Deschutes released a tour of Black Butte, the first of its videos, also produced by Impossible Engine. The videos are meant to give viewers a look at the places for which Deschutes Brewery products are named: Black Butte Porter and Mirror Pond Pale Ale.

Deschutes Brewery Digital Marketing Manager Jason Randles in an email said the next installment is scheduled for release in October to coincide with the release of Hop Trip, a seasonal pale ale.
