Rob Reiner’s film about the sadness that comes with the end of childhood innocence still maintains an emotional resonance decades later. Starring the very talented young quartet of River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton, Jerry O’Connell and Corey Feldman, STAND BY ME encompasses all the joy and pain of adolescence with an honest and deft touch, something that is rarely seen in the genre these days

The story centers on Gordie (Wheaton) and his three friends trek out into the woods outside their Oregon hometown to find the rumored dead body of a young boy who went missing. What starts out as a fun adventure (well as fun as finding a dead body can be) soon turns into an a subtle, but undeniably life-changing for the four boys. Entertaining, moving, beautifully shot and naturally acted STAND BY ME is one of the most unpretentious looks at that too-often used buzz term of "coming of age."

To celebrate this modern classic we will be presenting it with delicious gourmet food paired with amazing craft brewed ales straight from Deschutes, Oregon’s most notorious brewery. So, come enjoy this amazing combination of great film, food and beer at our Deschutes STAND BY ME Beer Dinner. And yes, of course we’ll be serving blueberry pie for dessert.
