Travel Oregon and Deschutes Brewery Collaborate to Create "Only Slightly Exaggerated IPA" 

The collaboration between Travel Oregon and Deschutes Brewery celebrates all things Oregon. "Only Slightly Exaggerated IPA" was born at the brewery’s original Public House in downtown Bend in 2018 with Travel Oregon’s first launch of the Only Slightly Exaggerated campaign.
This seasonal brew comes in 12-ounce bottles in six and 12 packs. The beer is available in 32 states and in all major retail outlets, convenience and liquor stores, as well as restaurants and bars. To find the nearest Deschutes beer near you, try their helpful beer finder.
Watch Deschutes and Travel Oregon celebrate the partnership and the beer on KPTV and KGW.

Agritourism Update

The most recent agritourism coordination and strategy meeting was held this summer in Cascade Locks. The meeting was the latest in a series that Travel Oregon convened in partnership with agencies, organizations and producers since the launch of the Oregon Agritourism Working Group in 2012. This work began with the goal of helping to cultivate Oregon’s agritourism industry, and continues today with activities that include engaging Oregon’s agriculture and food and beverage industries and those interested in agritourism for your business or community.
