We’re Crux Fermentation Project— housed in a former AAMCO Transmission Plant and inspired by our location right in the heart of Bend, Oregon. Our brewery is a one-of-a-kind, built for non-traditional brewing methods like decoction mashing, open fermentation and barrel aging, and for leveraging the limitless possibilities that wild yeast strains and experimental hops present.

Brewery

Brewing this week: Experimental Farmhouse, Experimental IPA, Experimental Pale Ale

Our tasting room is right in the middle of our brewery, partly because that's all the space we had left— but mostly because we wanted to give you the opportunity to experience the sites, sounds and wonderful aromas of the craft brewing process.

Tasting Room

Today's Sunset: Tonight
Today's Sundowner Hour: 30 min before, 30 min after Sunset

We may be a bit hard to find, but we're right smack in the middle of Bend, Oregon. Take the road less traveled and brave the "Private Road" and "No Outlet" signs— you'll be rewarded with 20+ original craft beers on tap and an expansive panoramic view of the Cascade Mountains which at dusk hosts Central Oregon's most incredible sunsets.
