Bend, Oregon – Deschutes Brewery, born in Bend in 1988, is proud to announce a new local partnership with longtime Central Oregon mountain bike advocate and information hub, BendTrails. As the Official Beer of BendTrails – the comprehensive guide to mountain biking trails in Central Oregon – Deschutes will connect with local and visiting mountain bikers alike, enthusiasts that share in the brewery’s roots for outdoor advocacy and stewardship, with a post-ride Deschutes beer to celebrate the world-class singletrack in the brewery’s backyard.
“BendTrails does an amazing job reaching both locals and visitors to connect them with the Bend mountain bike scene, something near and dear to our hearts,” said Ashley Picerno, Marketing Director for Deschutes. “We are excited to support this incredible resource and further expose our brand to local and visiting riders.”
“We’re thrilled to have Deschutes as our new flagship sponsor! Support from Deschutes will allow us to keep delivering all the things our users love about BendTrails — interactive maps, condition reports, trail descriptions, photos, and social updates — all for free, with no membership fees or subscriptions. Plus, what goes together better than mountain biking and beer?” — Valerie Rekward, Managing Partner
