The popular Deschutes Brewery in downtown Bend is expanding. The restaurant on Bond Street has been around for more than twenty years and for that long they've been talking about expanding. Deschutes Brewery founder Gary Fish says it's finally going to happen. “We are looking to expand our pub downtown so we can decrease the wait time for customers. Also for some much needed upgrades to the kitchen, that has been overtaxed. We're really excited. We're going to do it right.” With the expansion , the restaurant will nearly double in size. The work is expected to be done late 2011, early 2012.
