Brews and stars at Worthy’s in Bend

Worthy Brewing on the east side of Bend is a popular venue for locals and visitors to grab a bite, tour the brewery, wander through the on-site gardens and see the stars in the observatory tower.

Hopservatory” patrons can step up to the mini-Hubble telescope to see specific galaxies, stars, nebulae and even planets, depending on the time of year and level of visibility. The Hopservatory is operated by the Worthy Garden Club, a non-profit foundation that supports science literacy programs and initiatives. Day or night, our observatory offers you views of the stars and planets, as well as solar viewing.

Worthy Brewing, a solar powered brewery located in Bend, Oregon, was founded in 2012 by Roger Worthington. Worthy first opened its doors in February 2013. Worthy brews a full portfolio of craft beers and operates the east side pub and Taps and Tacos in downtown Bend.
