Housed in a former transmission shop and mill supply store, Crux Fermentation Project was built by a community of beer lovers. Crux brewmaster Larry Sidor is always in pursuit of the next great beer—beer that defies taste profiles with its complexity and creativity. We’ve designed our brewery to allow for non-traditional brewing methods like decoction mashing, open fermentation, oak barrel aging, wild yeast strains and experimental hops.
Bend's Family Oriented Project
An interesting experience...a place for people of all ages. Families with small children and pets laid out blankets on the expansive ground, played, visited with friends, drank beer or cider and ate food from one of the food carts on the grounds, and listened to music from a local ensemble. Inside the building the bar had multiple choices for beers or ciders. Our bbq food was well prepared, set out for our large group, and replenished often. The variety of food was good and tasty.
Worth the Visit
Nice and cozy atmosphere for a rainy day lunch. Their courtyard looks like a fantastic place to hang with friends.
Fabulous food! Amazing beers 🍻 and family friendly atmosphere to boot!!
We went to Crux for a friends reunion celebration of my best friend Clay and I being camp counselors and best friends after 25 years of friendship! We had been there for each other through thick and thin. It was awesome to be together and have a wonderful time with our family and his family. They had a blast there! Would love to come visit again! Especially when it involves food trucks 🚚!! Thank you so much for making this exciting experience happen for us!!
Delightful vibe, scene and beers
I loved the vibe and scene at Crux Fermentation Project. I went there one evening in June and the place was quite busy. The place is pretty large with wide open indoor space and well furnished outdoor space. I had a flight of four of their beers, which were delicious. Food is also available from a handful of food trucks, but I did not get any. Crux is a place to linger and enjoy food and beer.
fun place to hang out
this is a very interesting place with a big beer selection. the ordering process is a little lengthy. you have to go back and wait in line when you want another beer. they have mostly hop beers but they do have some nice dark beers as well. it is in a park setting with outside food venders and outside seating. parking can be a little tough on a crowded day.
