Worthy Brewing to Open Taps & Tacos in Downtown Bend

BEND, Ore. — The revolution will not be televised, brother. It will come in small bursts of color and flavor. It will live at the nexus of art and tacos, and come together in downtown Bend.

Worthy Brewing today announces the launch of Taps & Tacos on NW Brooks Street in downtown Bend on Saturday, June 30. The new venue, overlooking Mirror Pond, will serve a menu of artful tacos that defy the norm and pair with local craft beer.

“We’re excited to bring an updated Mexican dining experience to beautiful downtown Bend,” said Worthy Brewing chef, Kyle Nicholson. “Think roasted cochinita pork tacos, smoked brisket with tomatillo-avocado relish and salsas made from scratch. Pair those with our new Strata IPA or the blood orange Kama Citrus and you have the flavor of the new Taps & Tacos.”

Taps & Tacos brings new art and sabor to the downtown mix of restaurants with fresh takes on classic Mexican dishes. The restaurant seats 40 indoor and a dozen more outdoors. With eight walkup taps and growler fills featuring Worthy’s classics, such as Worthy IPA, Kama Citrus, Lights Out Stout, Easy Day Kolsch and its new Strata IPA. Taps & Tacos will throw open its doors to the public mid to late June.

“With the opening of Taps & Tacos, Worthy Brewing deepens its commitment to Bend and keeping it local,” said Worthy Brewing CEO John Glick. “We wanted to bring a complementary cuisine to the portfolio of excellent restaurants downtown. We continue to source our food and hops locally for an overall greater economic impact and health of our patrons. Drink up. Dream on!”

Taps & Tacos hours
Open 11 a.m. -11 p.m. every day
