Support the TDC and Celebrate Survival with Gary’s No Quit Wit
Yes. We think so. Bend’s own Gary Bonacker. One of the loveliest guys on the planet. And strongest and…
… orneriest. When he was diagnosed with brain cancer 11 years ago, he didn’t crawl into a hole. He didn’t retreat. He got busy fighting back and giving back. He’s one of those guys who doesn’t just talk about living life to the fullest. He does it. Each and every breath. Each and every day.
Gary Bonacker: Super Survivor. And Giver. And Smiler.
Worthy Brewing is proud to again sponsor the Tour Des Chutes. This will be the 11th year. Each year, it gets bigger and better. This year the TDC decided to let the runners in on the fun. More…

Local 36 Red Lager: Put Out the Fire
When you’re hot and bothered, and it’s time to put the fire out, cool your thirst with Worthy’s Local 36 Red Lager.
Local 36 Red Lager, the “lagger’s lager,” is a zippy, zesty, and robust reddish lager spiced handsomely with Ultra, a rare Oregon grown aroma hop with “noble” Bavarian roots. It’s brewed with Czech-style yeast and a mix of domestic and imported malts. It’s muscular without being hulking. Lean without being mean. And it delivers a smooth, clean and happily hopped finish.

Cascade Cycling Race Fans: Get Hopped Up!
Normally, Worthy’s all about balance. But when it comes to the imperials, Worthy likes its big beers like it likes a bike race: totally hopped up!
We don’t really want to watch a bunch of kids riding around casually in a circle. We want to see big, bold action: lung-busting attacks, epic bridges, out-of-body solo efforts, and crowd-energizing desperate breakaways.
In short, we want to see hopped up racers. Athletes who throw caution to wind. Redliners who give more than they got, who go to failure, but seem to find a way to replenish the tanks. We want to see animated racers-cum-super heroes who attempt the impossible. More…
CCC July 15-20, Bend, OR

Worthy Brewing Releases New Worthy IPA Can
BEND, ORE – A new look is coming to Worthy Brewing Company’s most popular flagship beer, Worthy IPA. The 12-ounce six-pack cans will now be packaged in a “hopgreen” can.
“The change is for a more consistent look in the retail market,” reports Worthy’s Creative Director, Dave Zinn, “The new look of the green can will better align with the current portfolio of our packaging.” The updated packaging is expected to hit retail markets the week of June 12.
Renowned for his IPAs, Brewmaster Chad Kennedy raised the bar. This clean, crisp, and refreshing beer is amazingly balanced. A tribute to Worthy’s friends at Indie Hops, Worthy IPA is bursting with finest hops Oregon has to offer. More…
Calling All Hop Pickers
Worthy’s looking for a few good pickers.
2014 promises to produce a banner hop harvest here at Worthy. So far the hops are right on schedule, with our Chinooks, Sterling, Santiam and Nuggets the first to reach the top of the 12 foot trellis wire.
In 2013, we planted over 20 hop varieties, including three experimental plants from the OSU-Indie Hops aroma hops breeding program. The OSU-IH “magic hops” are looking very strong. Jack in the Beanstock strong.
We are expecting about 6-7 pounds of fresh hops per mound. For a second year harvest from an urban farm on the East Side of Bend and not too far West of the Badlands Wilderness area, we’re hoppy with that.
