Worthy Brewing turns four years old this February and to celebrate our Golden Birthday we’ll be offering special beers, food pairings, and commemorative swag all day on February 4th and 5th at our restaurant on Bend’s East side.
Brewmaster Dustin Kellner and his team will be re-releasing our first ever beer, the GTX Go Time Xtra Pale Ale on the 4th, Worthy’s birthday. The next day will be pouring from our Heart & Soul pilot series a special pub one-off – Crashworthy Golden Ale.
“I am so proud of our restaurant and brewery staff,” glowed Roger Worthington, Worthy’s founder. “Through all the ups and downs, we’ve kept our eye on the prize – to bring our customers drink worthy beer, praiseworthy food, and an overall podium-worthy dining and drinking experience.”
“Our resilience reminds me of what Ma Joad said to her outlaw son at the end of The Grapes of Wrath. To paraphrase, nothing can whip us, wipe us out or lick us. We’ll go on forever, ‘cause we’re the people. Heck, we could drive this thing off a cliff, and our people would get up, dust themselves off and jump right back in the game. That’s grit. That’s conviction. That’s esprit de corps. And that’s what we have here. I couldn't be prouder.”
Kellner describes CrashWorthy Golden Ale as a light bodied and crisp golden with a healthy dose of Crystal and Citra hops for a big floral and grapefruit finish. At 5.8% and 28 IBU’s, this is a well-balanced and easy drinking compliment to the GTX, which seems to get bigger with each anniversary celebration.
Customers can purchase a commemorative anniversary glass for $6, which includes one fill of any Worthy beer currently on tap.
To go along with the birthday brews, our Head Chef Dirk Baxter has prepared a special menu including Tex-Mex style nachos, a mouth-watering prime rib sandwich and a potentially life altering Lights Out Stout infused Beer-a-Misu.
