Deschutes Brewery Restaurant Review 8.8

Deschutes Brewery, Sweet & Spicy Mac n Cheese

Many people make a pilgrimage to Deschutes Brewery for the Beer.  I go for the food.  This is a Pub with great food.  Hang at the bar for a pint or enjoy a meal.  My husband and brother both enjoy the beer.

My 3 favorite dishes at Deschutes Brewery are Fish n Chips, Reuben and Sweet & Spicy Mac n Cheese.  You must try the house sweet & spicy mustard.  I often substitute the sweet potato fries for the regular fries or salad.

I have traveled up and down the west coast with my husband searching for the best Fish n Chips.  We expected to find the best on the ocean but we were pleasantly surprised to find the 2 best places in Bend.  Deschutes is tied for 1st.  The fish is thick & smooth.  The breading is very light allowing the fish to be the star, not the bread.

The reuben is on a marble rye bread.  The meat is juicy & fresh.  I must have cole slaw on my reuben, the cole slaw here is perfectly light, not mayonnaisey.  The mustard is not in the sandwich but in the jar, it adds another unique element only available at Deschutes.

Last but not least, Sweet & Spicy Mac n Cheese.  Shells instead of macaroni Pasta allow more of the sauce in the spoon.  The cream sauce has an Asian flavor.  $11 for a vegetarian dish, $15 with meat (smoked salmon is my favorite).

Get a free pint if you donate blood to the American Red Cross on “pint for a pint” day sponsored by Deschutes Brewery (you must bring the coupon from the Red Cross).
