Bulletin Staff Report

Designated drivers on the Bend Ale Trail can get a free Hydro Flask if they visit all 10 stops and do not consume any alcohol, Visit Bend announced.

At each stop, the designated driver must declare that status to receive a special stamp on the passport from each brewery. The designated driver can also get a complimentary nonalcoholic beverage from 10 of the 18 stops on the trail. When the stamps of 10 stops on the ale trail are collected, the designated driver can bring the completed passport to the Bend Visitor Center on NW Lava Road in downtown Bend to get a free 16-ounce Hydro Flask True Pint.

“We want to recognize and reward the commitment being made by responsible designated drivers,” said Lucas Alberg, Hydro Flask public relations and communications manager, in a prepared statement. “It’s fun to have a day out sampling some of Bend’s best craft brews, but in the end, the most important thing is everyone’s safety. We’re proud to support this initiative by Visit Bend and strongly believe in the goals of the program.”
