Worthy Brewing Opens County’s First Hopservatory
Dec 2016 | Issue #119
Beer drinkers will soon be able to gaze into the cosmos while sipping on an IPA at Worthy Brewing’s new “Hopservatory.” Located inside the Bend, Ore., brewery, the observatory-opening in December-features a 16-inch RCOS-based Ritchey-Chrétien telescope and lets visitors explore space via guided tours and programs.
Below the telescope room, the “Transporter Room” (an homage to Star Trek) features a mosaic by California-based artist Rick Skalak. Covering the walls, floor, and central column, Skalak’s art depicts hop comets, a Klingon ship, the U.S.S.

X-331. The Inside Story of the Next Home-Run Hop
1859. Oregon’s Magazine
November 7, 2016
In August 2016, Roger Worthington and Jim Solberg drove to Silverton, Oregon to watch a key test of their secret prize-horse. They had invested a lot of money and time on this mare, studding her with the best genetic crosses and keeping it cloistered from bad elements (while raising her to do that herself).
In prior, preliminary trials, they had watched hopefully as she outperformed all of her competitors. People-scientists even-had told them she was special. Seven years of training for this moment! They had high expectations for their secret X-331. More..

Worthy’s Seasonal Powder Keg Going Off
BEND, OR — Powder Keg, our winter seasonal IPA, is back just in time for the winter snow explosion.
A winter warmer staple at Worthy Brewing since 2013, this red hued IPA is loaded with hop flavor and aroma with a festive piney and citrusy hop character. It’s balanced by a generous dose of crystal malts making this an aggressive yet balanced beer.
Powder Keg’s big without being heavy. It’s packed with an explosive amount of pure grade, highly volatile lupulin yellow cake, distilled from the ooziest of the oiliest Big C’s – – Centennial, Cascade, Chinook and Columbus. ABV is 7.1% and 65 IBUs.
After an exhilarating day shoveling snow or banging about on the Mountain, pull into Worthy for a post-detonation cool down.
Kegs are being distributed by Columbia Distribution in Oregon and Washington, Hodgen Distributing in Eastern Oregon, and by Hayden Beverage in Idaho through January.
