Getting a buzz with your buzz cut

Beer at the barber shop isn’t a revolutionary idea. Multiple barbers in Bend offer a complimentary tasty beverage with a hair cut. But bless the boys downtown at the Bond Street Barber Shop, they’ve brought in pony kegs to give you a nice Central Oregon microbrew on tap.

For $17, you get a haircut and a glass of 10 Barrel Brewing. (As of Wednesday, Jan. 27, Bond Street was serving up 10 Barrel’s Apocalypse IPA, Pray For Snow Strong Ale and the company’s Summer Seasonal.)

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe the Metropolitan Barber Shop gives you a can of PBR and Element 909 Aveda Men salon offers bottles of Cascade Lakes Brewing, both of which are also downtown. Also, Jay T’s Parlor for Men in the Old Mill has fridge full of micros . Not bad options, but it certainly isn’t the same as a drink fresh off the tap.

Let’s hope the keg in the barber shop is a trend that keeps growing here in Bend.
