BEND, OR -- One of Bend’s best known breweries is also one of the last to sell its beer in cans. Deschutes Brewery now offers three brews in lightweight aluminum cans in public houses in Bend and Portland: Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Pacific Wonderland Lager and Fresh Squeezed IPA. They are also still available in bottles.
Brewery officials say the new containers allow the popular beers to be sold in venues where glass bottles aren’t allowed. While the cans are available in tasting rooms now, they will be shipped from Bend to retail distributors nationwide, beginning February 19.
