BEND, Ore. Four Oregon companies were named in Outside Magazine's Best Places to Work list Thursday.

The magazine s annual list featured Bend stainless-steel water bottle manufacturer Hydroflask at number 27 along with Portland companies the Clymb and Salt Communications coming in at numbers 51 and 55 respectively.

Deschutes Brewery in Bend came in at number 65 along with a list of other tech, marketing, outdoor, beverage and media companies that embrace the outdoor lifestyle.

It s the Bend-based microbrewery, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, that many an Oregon beer imbiber recognizes for its iconic and delicious beers like Black Butte Porter and Mirror Pond Pale Ale.

Workers at companies that made the cut filled out employee-satisfaction surveys to collect information about benefits, compensation, policies, job satisfaction, environmental initiatives and community outreach programs.
