About The Suttle Lodge Winter Beer Festival

The festival is taking place from Friday, February 24th through Sunday, February 26th at The Suttle Lodge and Boathouse near Sisters, OR. Running from 12 PM to 5 PM each day, there will be great food, drinks, and beer fest activities to enjoy.

The event takes place at a beautiful lodge village on the shores of Suttle Lake in the Deschutes National Forest. Here, you’ll find roaring fires, secret lodges, and a VIP bar with specialty cocktails and goodies. Meanwhile, the house band will be rocking the venue to create an unforgettable atmosphere.

About Eat Drink Bend

I wanted to share more than where to eat, but what to eat. And not just what, but why? From where is the food resourced? Should it be paired with a beer, or a cocktail—and what kind? But most importantly, share the faces and tell the stories behind the people who make it all happen, showing support for small business in and around Bend.
