Rat Hole Brewing - Bend, OR
Rat Hole Brewing is a start up Nano Brewery in Central Oregon housed in a barn on 10 acres of rural ranch land southeast of Bend. A short walk from the brewery is the owners’ residence. The owners Al and Susan Toepfer, with Asst. Brewer & Marketing Guy Ken Deuser, and many more family members have spent two years taking a very run down barn that sits atop a 20,000 gallon cistern, into the great little brewery you see and taste today.
Rat Hole will be brewing Red Ales, Porters, Browns, IPA's, Pilsners, Wheat and Specialty Beers. Some of the Specialty Beers will be seasonal brews such as Pumpkin Spice Ale, Hazelnut Brown, and Vanilla Porters as example. Other specialty beers will be a Summer Lemon Wheat, Saison, and a Blueberry Ale
Rat Hole Brewing handcrafts its beers in small batches under the close personal attention of their Head Brewer Al Toepfer & Asst. Brewer Ken Deuser. Using traditional brewing methods, Al & Ken ensure a "most excellent" taste consistently. We package our beer in bottles & draft kegs.
Prior to becoming a commercial brewer, Al was a home brewer for many years. Ken Retired after serving 25 years in Navy traveling the world, and of course, tasting World Beers.
