What does a vegan eat at the Deschutes Brewery Bend Public House?

The Luv Burger.

It’s the only vegan entree on the menu.  I think it’s excellent.  (You can also order the fried chickpeas for a vegan appetizer:  delicious!)  The Luv Burger is a somewhat spicy black bean burger…Mmm.  You can have it with regular fries, sweet potato fries or salad (vegan salad dressing is available).

Luv Burger (black bean burger) means cows luv it.

The seasonal beer that I like right now is Chasin’ Freshies.  I like the snow scene on the bottle, but it would be way cooler if that snowboard was replaced with some telemark skis!  I’m getting excited for the snow to fall. 🙂

Last thing:

The menu at the brewery has a “V” icon for “Vegetarian” items.  Too bad that most of those items are not vegan.  (Also, take note that the vegan sounding soup of the day– white bean minestrone– contained a broth of boiled down chickens.  I’m glad I asked the waitress.)

WTF??…How can duck fat be considered vegetarian??  (Yes, I filled out a comment card!)

Duck fat is NOT vegetarian!
