Bend has received recent recognition from national publications as a premier destination for beer tourists.  This Thursday, the city will celebrate the local beer culture with the "Fermentation Celebration."  Noelle Fredland, Marketing Director of the Old Mill District, says the event will give residents and tourists a chance to sample some of the best micro-brews bend has to offer.  "It is probably best described as a brewery walk through the Old Mill District where we pair our local brews with specific restaurants and retailers. You can come down, it is $15 and you get 9 drink tickets which is basically good for 3 full beers."  One local brew, which will be featured, Black Butte Porter from Deschutes Brewery, was recently listed by the Home Brewers Association of America as the “21st Best Micro Brew” in the country.  Numerous options will be available to take people home safe and sound after the event including the bike cab and sober dudes.
