Deschutes Street Pub - Virginia LOVE Letters

Deschutes Brewery is an Oregon-based craft brewery that selected Roanoke in Virginia’s Blue Ridge as the site of its East Coast location that’s projected to begin operations in 2021.

However, Deschutes isn’t wasting any time becoming part of the local craft beer scene in the region, as its distributed at many major grocery stores and local beer shops, as well as restaurants and bars. This is the second year Roanoke has been included as a stop on the summer Street Pub tour, and we’re excited for the upcoming opening of the new Deschutes Brewery Tasting Room at 315 Market Street SE in Downtown Roanoke later this summer.
