Aamco Trucker Hat
In search of a home for our then, yet-to-be-named brewery, we toured over 50 possible sites. Some right downtown, some out on the fringes. Some industrial, some retail. Some old, some new. But, none matched the modest charm of what was then, the very-hard-to-find AAMCO Transmission shop. When we walked up to AAMCO’s plain white building with its iconic blue and red racing stripes, we were struck by its rich wood interior and oil-stained red concrete floors as we peeked in the windows. And then, we turned around to be completely blown away by the expansive mountain views. Within seconds we were in love with this place— right in the heart of our beloved town, Bend, Oregon.
