Back to the Boneyard
Boneyard Beer was started with one goal in mind – make great beer. In 2010, Boneyard Beer was created in an old auto shop tucked away in the backstreets of Bend, Oregon’s historical district. Without any outside investors or major bank loans, Boneyard’s inception was unconventional to say the least. After decades in the brewing industry, owner Tony Lawrence built up a “boneyard” of old equipment he collected from 13 different breweries around the country. Alongside co-founders, Clay and Melodee Storey, this second-hand brewing equipment was pieced together to brew the first batch of Boneyard Beer in May 2010. As Boneyard has grown, the initial fermenters have been replaced with shiny new ones, but the original, refurbished 20-barrel system is still the one Boneyard uses for seasonal and special release beers today. Want to taste these special releases? In 2021 Boneyard re-opened the original Lake Place taproom to the public. Open Wednesday – Saturday, 12pm – 6pm and Sunday, 12pm – 5pm; the taproom offers tasters, pints, merchandise and beer to-go.
As we progress, the focus remains the same: clean, balanced, high quality beer.
