“How do I find Crux Tasting Room?”

Don’t be scared, it’s a little funky getting here but you’re on the right path! You can find us at the East end of Industrial Way, where it hits Division St – but if you’re driving, you’ll want to take Aune Street to avoid the gate. A map is available here.

“What are your hours of operation?”

Our Tasting Room hours vary depending on the season so go here to find out when we’re open. Check out our Food Cart page to find out who’s open and when.

“Can I make reservations? Bring a large group?”

We’ve found that Crux works best when it’s an open and inviting environment for everyone. Come in and get to know your neighbor on the stool next to you!

“Are minors allowed?”

Yes! We welcome you and your young ones. We just can’t serve ‘em at the bar, so please don’t send them up to order your beer for you.

“Are dogs allowed?”

We love dogs at Crux, and we welcome them here! They just need to be on leash at all times, and we can’t have any pups inside unless they’re a certified service animal.

“Where can I buy Crux beer/where are you distributed?”

Crux is currently distributed throughout Oregon and Washington, and in parts of Idaho (namely, the Boise area), and California (mostly the Bay Area & Humboldt County) and most recently Reno, Nevada. We wish we could get our beer to you wherever you call “home,” but it may take us a little while if your home is outside those areas. Bear with us, we are working on it!

“Can I buy a keg? If so, what styles are available?”

You may absolutely buy kegs from Crux. Please email the following based on your location:

[email protected] – Bend Tasting Room
[email protected] – PDX Pub

“What’s on tap? What’s on the menu? Is it up to date?”

Our website will always list our current On Tap menu for your sipping pleasure! The food menu will be up-to-date seasonally, with the possibility of some slight changes in case our chefs decide to change things up, or if folks kill a keg faster than our fingers can update our beer menu.

“Do you serve food?”

We don’t want to toot our own horn TOO much, BUT…we’re cooking up some tasty grub in our kitchen. Check out our food menu to see what we’ve got cooking!

We also encourage you to explore our awesome Food Carts.

“Are the food carts open?”

You bet those Food Carts are open! Please check the here for their up-to-date hours.

“Where can I buy your branded merchandise?”

Lucky, you! You can buy our sweet Merch either in-person at the Tasting Room, or on our online store.

“What’s Sunset Hour?”

Sunset Hour is a magical time, and it happens every single day. Enjoy $1 off beers for the half hour directly before and after Sunset each day. Times will vary depending on the time of year.

“What about future beer releases? When is my favorite beer coming back on tap?”

We want to keep you as updated as possible about all of our delicious beer offerings on our On Tap page. We will be sure to list all Bottle Release parties on our Events page. Our website will always be up-to-date with what’s on draft that very day, so you can arrive thirsty and feel confident about what you’d like to drink. And if you are a fan of Untappd, be sure to follow us and turn on your notifications to get pinged every time we tap a new beer or add an event.

“Where can I find out when you’ll have live music?”

Whenever a band is coming through, we’ll be sure to post that on our Events page. Check there for our latest calendar of talented artists.

“Do you make a cider? Gluten-free beer? Root beer?”

Most times we have our very own craft cider on tap, other times we feature some awesome local cideries so ask our staff about the latest offering when you visit. We also offer our own Red, White, and Rosé wines along with local kombuhca and soda to satisfy your other (potentially gluten-free) needs.

“Do you guys donate beer to local events or organizations?”

Crux loves to support our local and regional communities whenever possible. We have big hearts but a small brewery. We hope you’ll understand why we can’t donate beer to everyone who asks. If you are interested in having Crux donate to your event, please visit our Donations page.

“Is Crux hiring?”

Please check out the Careers section of our website for any open positions. If you are interested in working at the Tasting Room, feel free to drop by during our open hours and drop off a resume to one of our Tasting Room Leads.

“Do you comply with Prop 65?”

Yes, Crux has confirmed with all of its suppliers that BPA is not utilized in the production of any packaging products and therefore is in compliance with California’s Prop 65.
