pFriem Family Brewers 2nd Anniversary Celebration

One of our favorite Oregon breweries, pFriem Family Brewers, is turning 2 years old and has proudly announced its 2nd Anniversary Party on Saturday, August 2nd, from 2 to 10PM. In addition to celebrating that milestone, pFriem is finally having the Grand Opening of its new outdoor patio.

Featuring a unique outdoor structure constructed of steel and barn wood and a central fire pit, the outdoor patio will expand pFriem’s seating capacity and treat guests to stunning views of the Columbia River Gorge. The pFriem tasting room and outdoor patio in Hood River is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner service at 11:30am.

pFriem‘s 2nd Anniversary party will be a family-friendly event, featuring live music with bands including Wilderness [Bend], Water Tower [Portland], and will headline band Ages and Ages [Portland]. pFriem’s party will take place in the parking lot to the east of the brewery, with views of the Hood River waterfront and easy access to Waterfront Park. There will be a local vendor “pop-up shop” and a kid’s corner in the parking lot featuring face painting for young & old by Shining Faces LLC. The pFriem brew crew will be doing a special release of a Session IPA. The pFriem tasting room also will be open to guests during the outdoor event. The tasting room will provide their full food menu during the event. Several food options will be available in the outdoor event area, including veggie burgers, brats, and organic hot dogs for the kids. Minors are welcome at the pFriem event from 2pm to 10pm.

The schedule of events is as follows:

4-5:30PM Wilderness. Collection of exquisitely crafted tunes, intersecting folk, pop & rock music.

pFriem (pronounced “freem”) produces an array of beers that feature Belgian inspired ales, along with Northwest hop forward favorites. pFriem currently features a wide range of seasonal beers and has most recently started a barrel-aging program, which consists mostly of traditional Belgian [Lambic-style] sour ales that will be ready in the next year.

pFriem Brewery and Tasting Room is located in Hood River, OR, just south of the Washington State border and across the street from the town’s beautiful Waterfront Park. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Columbia and White Salmon rivers while enjoying pFriem’s core beers and current seasonals. The pFriem tasting room offers a Belgian-influenced menu, made with locally sourced ingredients and designed to pair with the pFriem family of artisanal beers.
