Brewer Veronica Vega and naturalist Jane Meissner lead a hike at the Land Trust's Whychus Canyon Preserve as part of the Beers Made by Walking program! See how Oregon breweries create unique beers that are a portrait of their local landscape.

Join the Deschutes Land Trust and Deschutes Brewery for a beer-themed hike at the Land Trust's Whychus Canyon Preserve. This walk is part of the Beers Made by Walking program that features a handful of Oregon breweries creating unique beers that are a portrait of their local landscape.

Deschutes brewer Veronica Vega will help lead the hike and talk about the edible plants that will go into the Brewery's beer. Land Trust volunteer Jane Meissner will add her vast botanical knowledge as a long-time Central Oregon naturalist. The hike will follow a trail through old-growth juniper forests that ends at a boulder outcropping with amazing views of Whychus Creek and the canyon.

The special Deschutes Brewery beer that will be a part of the Beers Made By Walking program will be available this fall at the Deschutes Brew Pub in Bend and at a special tasting event at Belmont Station in Portland. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Land Trust.

Limited spaces available for this hike, so register today!
