Lovely Cherry Baltic Porter – Bend Brewing Company


Category : Beer, Beer Reviews, Imperial Baltic Porter


The Cherry Baltic Porter is no stranger in my house.  I have a had a pretty good relationship with this beer for a few years now.  It’s a shame I haven’t reviewed this one until now, but that’s the way the beer pours sometimes.

This beer just makes me warm looking at the bottle.  It has a dark cherry red label with a lovely lady that stares into your heart. Yeah, your heart! Because, I love this one.

No, this is not the beer I am taking camping, this is not the beer next to me at the pool, and no this is not the beer I like to sip on at lunch.  This is the beer I like to savor until Friday night with a good movie and a bucket of popcorn.  This beer makes me want to take sloooooow sips, and enjoy the moment.

Bone-A-Fide Pale Ale – Boneyard Beer

Boneyard Bone-a-fide Pale Ale

Also Bone-a-fide soaps available!

We had our first chance to try the Bone-A-Fide Pale Ale from Boneyard Beer at the World Beard Championship in Bend last May and we were more than pleased. We have since tried this beer a few additional times and are big fans. If you haven’t been to their tasting room, we highly recommend that you do. You can also find their beers at several local restaurants in town such as Brother Jon’s and Jacksons Corner.  It’s more than likely they will be serving this brew or the RPM IPA.

On a mission to help Boneyard break another record of growlers sold each Wednesday we headed on over to pick up a growler of Bone-a-fide. It was business as usual on Wednesday for Boneyard as they had a tent and grill set up for serving fish tacos and the ever present line to fill ‘er up! We were quickly greeted by the gang who is always friendly and ready to share their tasty treats. After a quick chat and news that a new shipment of apparel would be arriving next Wednesday we headed out knowing we would be back next week. On the way to the car one of the brewers let us know he was still working on the recipe for Bone-a-fide and hadn’t quite achieved what he was looking for. I wasted no time in letting him know that not much change was necessary. Bone-a-fide is already on it’s way to being a classic Pale Ale from Bend, Oregon.
