A line from Deschutes Brewery web site: I'd go in on a keg. Their current offerings, http://www.deschutesbrewery.com/brewery/brew-pubs/bend-pub/bend-whats-on-tap/default.aspx Some plans just don't work out. I thought I'd get up your way for some fall color, but I blinked. I mean it is in the 90's here! Hardly fall like weather ... I left it too late. I was sorry to have missed D2D ... By the time they fixed my electrical problem there just wasn't enough time to make a run for Dawson City from Jasper. I'd probably have gotten there just in time to see everybody leaving. Another time. I did use your route going south, thank you: down the Ice Fields Pkwy; Revelstoke; Creston; night in Cranbrook; on through Crowsnest Pass and over Going to the Sun Road; ending at Kalispell. Much different from my usual. I'll keep an eye on this thread just incase there might be some interest in a keg. I agree the half mile is a bit much but Bend has some good food to go with their brews. I'll need that walk.
