Dear Bend Brewfest Enthusiasts: For the last 106 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) has been making a significant impact in the lives of children across the nation. The mission of BBBS is to empower youth to achieve their highest potential through meaningful one-to-one relationships with caring mentors. Locally, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon has been providing mentoring services for 16 years. The simple act of mentoring a child can have long-lasting benefits. We are in the business of “Changing how our Children grow up in our Community.” A Big Brother or Big Sister match is carefully administered and supported by rigorous standards and trained personnel. Professional agency staff strive for matches that are not only safe and well suited to each child’s needs, but also harmonious and built to last. That is why so much care is taken in screening and orienting volunteers, and then in matching them with children. In 2009, we served 450 matches throughout the tri-county area. However, there are many more children who could benefit. Big Brothers Big Sisters’ recipe for success is quite simple. We need “Bigs” and “Bucks.” These two elements are critical in sustaining our current program and paramount in order to help vulnerable children beat the odds. We partner with the Bend Brewfest each year to create awareness and utilize the event to recruit potential Big Brothers and Big Sisters to join our organization. Big Brothers Big Sisters is very appreciative to the Bend Brewfest event crew and organizers for selecting us to be a part of this community-wide event. Please consider being part of something “Big.” Enjoy the 6th Annual Bend Brewfest, and thank you for supporting the No. 1 mentoring organization in the country. Sincerely, Mark Wilke, Program Director Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Oregon

Get ready to RUN!

The inaugural Deschutes Brewery Twilight 5K run/walk will take place on Thursday, Aug. 19 at 7 p.m. This will be Bend’s first midweek race and will capitalize on the long days and warm temperatures of August. The course

will be an all-pavement affair that takes you through two of the premier parks along the beautiful Deschutes River. The race starts and finishes at the Deschutes Brewery off ShevlinHixon Drive in the Old Mill District. The Twilight 5k will be a great time and a unique event here in Bend, Oregon because after you get done putting the hurt on this course, you’ll be treated to a beer garden featuring Deschutes Brewery’s Twilight Summer Ale, great post race food, and some music to shake

your booty to if you have any energy left. The race will also kick off the Bend Brewfest. There is nothing like a little run to help earn those calories that those tasty beverages contain. I know you think this can’t get any better — a run, beer, food, music — but wait, it does. Proceeds from this event will benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Central Oregon.

ABV stands for “alcohol by volume.” It is a standard measure of how much alcohol (ethanol) is contained in an alcoholic beverage, like beer.


IBU stands for “International Bittering Units.” This is a measurement of the actual bitterness of a beer as contributed by the alpha acid from hops. Generally speaking, beers with IBUs of less than 20 have little to no apparent hops presence, IBUs from 20-45 offer a mild to pronounced hops presence, and IBUs greater than 45 — while still considered mild by many Northwest brewers’ standards — offer a more pronounced hops flavor and bitterness.


Belgian Blonde Ale A brilliant yellow-gold with white head and a slight haze, this Belgian Blonde has a spicy and fruity aroma, courtesy of our unique Belgian yeast. There is a very slight, spicy hop aroma that you taste all the way through to a spicy, clovelike finish. Capped with a late hop bitterness on top of the additional sweet, yeast-derived flavors, this light- to medium-bodied Belgian is sure to intrigue all of your senses, glass after glass. ABV: 6.20% IBUs: 24 Summer Ale The true Summer Ale of Central Oregon! A Golden Ale, light and smooth. You can taste the craftsmanship in this easy drinking ale with a smooth blend of Cascade and Sterling hops and finished wih a touch of Honey malt to balance it out. This is a great introduction if you are new to the world of craft brewing. For established craft enthusiasts, 10 Barrel Summer Ale is a good reprieve from overly hopped and overly malty alternatives.

What are hops anyway? For nearly 1,000 years, hops have been used in the beer brewing process. Hops are the flower clusters on the fast-growing herbaceous perennial hop plants, which are used as a flavoring, preservative and stability agents in the brewing process. These handy little flowers also balance the flavors of the beer, contributing a bitterness that complements the sweetness of the malts. “Deschutes Brewery has used whole leaf hops (and have invested heavily behind them) from day one because we believe they yield a better beer with better flavor,” said Larry Sidor, brewmaster for Deschutes Brewery. “We’re big fans of Mother Nature and keeping our brewing ingredients as close as possible as to what she provides.” In addition to a healthy dose of bitter, hops contribute floral, citrus and herbal aromas, while also aiding in the retention of the beer’s “head,” or the length of time that the foamy head on the beer (created by carbonation) will last. Hops are the main factors in a beer’s “IBU” rating – or International Bittering Units. The higher this rating, generally, the more hops were used during the brewing process. For example, a more “mainstream” beer like Sierra Nevada’s Pale Ale has an IBU rating of 37. Ninkasi’s Tricerahops Double IPA has a staggering rating of 100, the highest measureable IBU rating. 12 | Bend Brewfest 2010 | Friday-Saturday, August 20-21

Women in Brewing Although men dominate the brewing industry, history tells us that brewing was traditionally a woman’s job. Women are returning to brewing and making significant strides (not to mention good beer) in the process. In fact, both Full Sail Brewing Company and New Belgium Brewing are owned by women. Irene Firmat, who founded Full Sail in 1987, was recently named Woman Executive of the Year by the Portland Business Journal. New Belgium was started by couple Kim and Jeff Jordan in the late 80s. Kim started out as the company’s first bottler, sales rep, distributor, marketer and financial planner. Now she is the CEO. 14 | Bend Brewfest 2010 | Friday-Saturday, August 20-21

Craft beer … in a can? According to the National Brewers Association, 45 craft breweries across the country now can at least some beer. It may seem like blasphemy to some, but brewers insist that the beer tastes the same coming from a can (although many encourage the pouring of beer – no matter its original package – into the appropriate chilled glass to enjoy properly). What’s even better is that the can makes the beer more portable, easier to enjoy “on the run,” so to say. For a summer filled with rafting, boating, hiking and more, the lightweight portability of a can isn’t limited to “macrobrews” any longer.

Posters and glasses can be purchased at the Ticket Mill, The Duck Store and Visit Bend.

The Low-Down on Nitro

Recently I was asked to write a piece about what makes Nitro beer so tasty. What better excuse to partake in “research.” I mean, do I have a tough job or what? With thirst in hand and an eye for nitro, the wife and I hit five local brewpubs to see what we could learn. All in all we found three local nitros (two stouts and a black ale) and a nitro IPA from Colorado (at one of Bend’s finer restaurants). Were our search in winter, we’d likely have found even more. Right or wrong, a lot of folks equate nitro with dark beers which are consumed more in the colder months. So the question remains: why is nitro beer so tasty? I’d say there are two main reasons. First, nitro creates a slow pour. It takes time to fill the glass. At first the entire beer appears creamy. Then the cream cascades upwards until one to two inches of super dense foam condenses on top. This cascading effect is also known as fallout and, when witnessed in good light, is visually stunning. Oh sweet anticipation! Second, nitro beer is smoother, creamier and softer. Every sip must pass through that dense foam curtain which serves to hold back the bitter elements while permitting the chocolate, coffee and in the case of the IPA, citrus flavor to filter through. Pure heaven! So the next time you hit the brewpub, consider a nitro beer. My guess is you won’t be disappointed. — John Abraham Bend Brewfest 2010 | Les Schwab Amphitheater | 19

Creative Faceout Studio / Faceout After moving our design studio to Bend this winter, our first order of business was to seek out some interesting local projects to sink our teeth into. The downside to having a national client base outside of Bend is the lack of day-to-day personal interaction with those we work with every day. So, we began our quest looking for the best clients and the best projects here in Bend. Sounds greedy. One night, after working through several finely crafted beers at Deschutes, we realized that Bend really is an amazing craft brewing town. If we could combine our love of beer with our passion for design, we were on board. Soon thereafter, the wonderful folks at the Old Mill District brought us on board to help re-launch the Bend Brewfest after a one-year hiatus. As a team, we worked on many new logo options, but along with the Old Mill crew felt the mark that said Beer and Bend the best was the beer bottle, smoke stack logo. It was important to establish Bend as a beer destination and to lay the groundwork for a festival that has big plans for the future. In addition to an all new look for this year’s festival, there will be some great merchandise made available. Yeah, stuff you’ll actually want to wear. And as for next year, several ambitious plans are in the works that will bring some unique recognition to the beer industry in this town and, more importantly, the great and colorful characters who are brewing the beers we all love. Stay tuned! Cheers! Charles Brock, Torrey Sharp and the crew at Faceout Creative.

Otherwise it would be their Code 24.” PAUL: “My favorite beer at Three Creeks is called an IBA (Not IPA). As I understand it, the batch was a mistake but tasted so good they regularly brew it now. It’s in my all-time top 10 beers. Not sure if they will have it in time for the Brewfest though, but it is a cool story. Wayne, the owner can tell you more, I’m sure.” Faceout Creative is a graphic design studio and idea shop located in the Old Mill District.
