Deschutes Acquires Boneyard

Deschutes of Bend, Oregon, the nation’s 11th largest Craft Brewery has acquired Boneyard Brewing, also of Bend. Boneyard’s name was a nod to the brewery’s origins, as it was established with used equipment from breweries scattered across the country. The ‘joint venture’ was in-part a reflection of the challenges brought about by the pandemic. Boneyard previously based its revenue on tasting room and keg sales and Covid forced a shift to packaged product – aluminum cans. An alignment with Deschutes provides greater efficiency and opportunity for retail sales while allowing Boneyard to continue operations of its 20 barrel brewhouse and pub.
