Three Creeks Brewing, more good people; Dave (the brewer) was very open and full of great advice! Wade, GM and Founder of the pub, let Peter and I pepper him with business questions for hours. Finally, Peter and I had the chance to have an Entrepreneur “geek out session” while Kevin kept up a steady pace of beer geeking with Dave. Dave has connections to SLC so we hope to see him at the Brewery later this year.
The town of Sisters is a good time, just like the IPA Dave is hopping up at Three Creeks Brewing! If you want to impress the locals at Three Creeks order a Squirrel, it is not on the beer list but Pete and Kevin sure enjoyed it. This pub has good family friendly dinning too. Sisters is a mountain town just 20 miles east of Bend. Bend is the site of the 2009 Cyclocross National Championships and Sisters could be an interesting alternative to staying in Bend for you Utah Cross fanatics.
USAC doesn’t mention Bend as home to Deschutes Brewery but seems like they should since beer plays a major role in cross history here and across the pond. Bend’s Deschutes Pub was packed on Wednesday night and from the photos you see they earned some medals...we enjoyed Obsidian Stout, some pales, and how can we not mention ALL SIX IPA's on tap...schizzle! Six IPA’s in the small town of Bend and some say the 801 can't handle 3 at one shop, don't despair because we're bringing it!
Then somewhere in East Oregon, we nearly rear-ended this guy! We were not sure if we should just write him off as insane or negotiate our distribution and trucking contract on the spot…seems he has survived going 3 mph on this highway for years!
