After taking brewers out on three hikes in the Bend region, we've asked them to create beer inspired by the plants we saw along the trail. After seeing the impressive list of one-off beers, we thought we should publish it here to let everyone know how awesome the Beers Made By Walking - Bend Tapping event will be. We will have beers from three Bend-based breweries: Crux, Deschutes, and Worthy. We're also bringing a couple specialty kegs from brewers in the Willamette Valley Take a look below for more details.

Beer List:

Crux Fermentation Project
River Trail Sour - A blend of our Saison and a barrel aged golden sour. Inspired by plants we saw on a hike at Alder Spring, we added chokecherry and mint and fermentes with a culture from Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project in Colorado. 9% ABV, 15 IBU

Worthy Brewing
Walk on the Wild Side (Badlands Indigenous Ale) - Beer brewed with Juniper tips, juniper berries, Indian Rice grass, Desert Sage, wheatgrass, and fescue. The beer is inspired by a hike in the Oregon Badlads. 6.5%, 14 IBU

Deschutes Brewery
Botanic Ale - A light and crisp beer with rye, wild sage, and meadowsweet, rose and Stella hops, inspired by a hike in May, at the height of wildflower season, along the Middle Deschutes River where it connects with Whychus Creek.

Laurelwood Pub and Brewery
Saison de Walkie - A slightly tart Saison with rose hips and elderberries, inspired by a late-summer hike on the Wildwood Trail in Forest Park, Portland, OR. 5.5% ABV, 12 IBU

Seven Brides Brewing
Pseudo Tsuga IPA - Light bodied IPA with a piney aroma and resiny flavor from the addition of Douglas Fir needle tea. The beer is inspired by the giants of the Silver Falls Canyon, where Douglas Fir forests veil pristine waterfalls, adding depth to the majesty of an area the brewery is glad to call home. 5.4%, 60 IBU
