Bend Brewing Co. (now under new ownership!) is debuting new bottles and a new sour beer into the lineup called Razz Tafari raspberry & lemongrass sour ale. The new bottles will be available at bottle shops and grocery stores in Central Oregon now and they will be available next week in the Portland Metro area.

Bend Brewing Co. (BBC), established in 1995, and the second oldest brewery in Bend, Oregon, is debuting the brand new designs and new 16.9 oz (500ml) size, a departure from their beers formerly in 22oz bottles.

More from the press release:

The new lineup will be anchored by fan-favorite Ching Ching; BBC’s Sour Ale that has won Gold medals
at both the World Beer Cup and Great American Beer Festival in recent years. Additionally, BBC will begin ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? recognized for their kettle sours and plans to make sour ales a large part of their identity. “The popularity of our sours is really encouraging and is continuing to grow, which is why we wanted to introduce another sour to the mix. We are really proud of Razz Tafari, which has already received high praise from our sour fans, and the new Rastafarian themed graphic design on the label is exciting and totally different for BBC,” said Packy Deenihan, President & Co-Owner of Bend Brewing Co.

In addition to Ching Ching and Razz Tafari, Bend Brewing Co. will be bottling HopHead Imperial IPA, Lovely Cherry Baltic Porter and Metolius Golden Ale as year round offerings. In addition to these signature styles, expect to see new seasonal releases throughout the year. “We’re really looking forward to expanding the fan base of BBC by offering a wider variety of bottled beer styles. Starting with the eye-catching labels, new size and the lower price points, we anticipate it will attract a whole new community while also giving our loyal fans more of what they want. We’re just getting started for 2017, I expect that this bottle release will be one of many exciting announcements for BBC in 2017.”

    Their new logo looks an awful lot like Baerlic’s logo…

      I like the new design, but I was going to say the same thing. First thing that popped into my head was it looked like Baerlic’s logo on their bottles.

        sorry guys but I really dont see the resemblance in logos. Bend Brewing’s is two opaque circles with three intertwined letters in the middle. Baerlic’s is one letter in a different font, in a shield like shape without multiple levels, with sun ray lines coming out of it ie here http://blog.cosgravelaw.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/Baerlic_logo.png
