When you visit the Itty Bitty Inn, you may venture down Sherman Avenue and enjoy an Oregon brewed craft beer in down town North Bend, Oregon at The Liberty Pub, or maybe south along highway 101 to Coos Bay, Oregon at our very locally brewed 7 Devils Brewing Company!
Or maybe you'd prefer the relaxed setting of your own room, instead by walking across our parking lot to fill your growler with local beer or cider at the Itty Bitty Inn's front lobby. Our cider is made by the Bandon Rain cidery and our beer is brewed at 7 Devils in Coos Bay, just 3.5 miles south of the Itty Bitty Inn!
No matter where you decide to enjoy your tasty beverage, likely you are enjoying a craft beer whose roots originate from of a movement that is artistic and agriculturally responsible - and financially creating BIG economic ripples felt in every corner of our country.
Steve Dresler, the godfather of the craftbeer movement, and his wonderful wife, Cathy - stayed at our Itty Bitty Inn last night!
Meet Steve Dresler, who oversaw all of Sierra Nevada Brewing's new beer development and production since 1983, winning 8 World Beer Cup awards and 31 Great American Beer Festival medals!
The recently retired brewmaster of Sierra Nevada Brewing is still listed by Wikipedia as their head brewer.
Thank you for staying with us!
It's Gray whale migration season again - and this time they are heading south for warmer waters!
An estimated 20,000 Gray whales are leaving Alaska and are en route to Baja Mexico! There are several great whale observation areas nearby, between Charleston and Cape Arago. While you're at it, be sure to see the Christmas lights at the Shore Acres gardens!
WooooWeeee, what a trip!
Here's a great local story on our "Whale Week" from KCBY TV.
Visit North Bend, Oregon for goblin fighting! Or come and raid a dragon's hoard! Or listen to a bard's tale!
But, in today's blog entry - I'd like to tell you about a different type of cantina that beckons our guests.
