Denver couple will take over Bend Brewing Company in January


BEND — A couple from Denver will be taking over a Bend downtown landmark: the Bend Brewing Company.

The Bulletin reports that brewpub owner Wendi Day says she's selling the 20-year-old family business to Packy and Leslie Deenihan, who will take over in January.

The Deenihans say they don't plan any immediate changes to the operation.

Oregon State University graduate Packy Deenihan moved to Bend in 2008, where he sold crepes and worked at the Mt. Bachelor ski area. When the Great Recession hit in 2009, he moved to Denver, where he says he worked a corporate job that didn't fit his personality.

The 29-year-old says he loves craft beer and has always wanted to get into the industry.

Bend Brewing Company was founded in 1995 and is the second-oldest brewery in the city.
