Cheers to 10 Years! at Three Creeks

The year 2008 was a daunting year for business owners everywhere. But Wade Underwood didn’t look at it like that. He had a passion for the outdoors and a love for craft beer. After being in Central Oregon and watching craft breweries come out of Bend, he saw a wide open opportunity.

That same year, located just at the foothills of the Sisters mountains, where the purest water in the world comes from, Wade decided then and there that he would open what would soon become Three Creeks Brewing Company.

Three Creeks Brewing Co. started as a 10-barrel system in a brewpub with a full restaurant. The locals loved it and the tourists made it a pitstop passing between the valley and Bend, Oregon. But they weren’t stopping just for the food.

The beer had something special about it. Was it the water? Was it the love that the brewer’s put into their craft? Or was it the feel of a warm hometown brewery in an old livery stable?

Whatever it was, Thee Creeks was growing, and it was growing fast! After seven years, the small 10-BBL facility couldn’t keep up with the demand, so Wade and team decided to open an additional production facility a mile and a half up the road.

The 30-BBL brewhouse at the new production facility features a tasting room, open every Friday and Saturday throughout the summer. The roster of great beers was getting bigger and our wall of awards was getting fuller. The 10-BBL system was still pumping out specialty beers and the additional production facility allowed us to expand an already successful year round beers. Currently, Three Creeks is putting out more beers than we ever have!

And just a few months ago, just shy of the 10th anniversary, the 30-BBL brewhouse recently added on two new uni-tanks, allowing the brewery to increase our production by 40 percent.

After 10 years, Three Creeks is now being distributed throughout all of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and soon … California. They have won the most prestigious awards that the beer industry has to offer, from several wins at the Great American Beer Fest, to the most recent successes at the World Beer Cup.

“It is because of you, the beer lovers, the business owners that continue to support us, the locals that hold up our arms, and the tourists wanting to try something new, that we are here to tell the story. So we want to celebrate YOU,” the brewery said in a release.

After three years of getting settled into a new brewing facility, Three Creeks has decided to turn their front lot into a place for locals and visitors alike to sit back, enjoy a beer and hang out. They will be hosting their 10 Year Anniversary at this spot, so visitors can be right here with them at the foothills of the mountains with the great view, in Sisters, Oregon where it all began.

Saturday, July 21, Three Creeks is celebrating its 10th Anniversary. Join them for a carnival-like atmosphere with dunk tanks, bounce house obstacle courses, and more. They will have games, live music by Larry and His Flask, food trucks, and of course, beer showcasing 10 years of greatness. Admission is free.
