ABOUT BROKEN TOP BOTTLE SHOP
We’re not a brew pub, we’re a brew HUB! And, we understand how important craft brews, delicious food, and a welcoming place to gather are to our community!
Drawing initial inspiration from the Bier Stein in Eugene, Oregon, owners Jennifer and Jason Powell set out to fill an unoccupied niche in Bend, Oregon. Even in the face of a booming craft beer industry in Central Oregon, no retail establishment, pub, or restaurant was doing what they wanted to do, which was… to offer the perfect combination of tasty food, a variety of draught craft and specialty beer, and a grand selection of bottled and canned beer for on- and off-site consumption.
In February of 2012, BTBS opened its doors and that dream was realized! Since then, we’ve received a lot of attention! We’ve won the Source Weekly’s “Best Vegetarian Food” 1st place in 2014 and 2nd place in 2013 and 2012. We’ve also been featured in Central Oregon Magazine articles “Brew Hub” and “Broken Top Bottle Shop & Ale Café”, as well as Cascade Arts & Entertainment, Visit Bend, the Source Weekly, Bend Bulletin, and we were listed in the Top 10 Best and Most Iconic Beer Bars in Oregon by the Willamette Week magazine!
