The Museum is generously opening up their doors for Jon and visitors for the evening to allow folks to explore the exhibits and the history of the region.
Deschutes Botanical AleDeschutes Brewery has graciously agreed to join us for the evening, which I’m very excited about because it’s a great combination of Bend’s history with Bend’s first brewery!” says Abernathy. Deschutes will also be pouring a keg of their pub specialty Botanical Ale. Chef Rudy of Smokin’ Dan Brew & Q will be there as well serving up delicious food to pair with the beer.
