pFriem Family Brewers Releases Higgins Anniversary Ale Collaboration

pFriem Family Brewers has released Higgins Anniversary Ale, a collaboration with downtown Portland’s farm-to-table pioneers Higgins Restaurant for its 25th Anniversary. Throughout this March, Higgins is celebrating its 25th anniversary with special collaborations, food specials, dinners and this new Belgian-style farmhouse saison which is available on draft at Higgins and pFriem with a small amount of caged and corked 375ml bottles on sale at the former, plus Belmont Station. If you don’t know, Higgins is one of Portland’s oldest fine dining institutions and has long been a beer geek destination, an early place that embraced both the farm-to-table movement but also craft and imported beer.

More from a press release:
Higgins Anniversary Ale is a Belgian-style farmhouse saison made with Calamondin oranges, cardamon, and green peppercorn. Featuring notes of lemon and spice, it finishes  delicate and dry. The beer was a collaborative effort of James Beard award-winning chef Greg Higgins; chef de cuisine Patrick Strong; beer steward Pauly Miller; and the brewers at pFriem Family Brewers.
Higgins Anniversary Ale is currently available on draft only at the restaurant, located at 1239 SW Broadway and Jefferson, and at pFriem Family Brewers in Hood River. It is also available in a limited number of cage and cork 375ml bottles at Higgins, Belmont Station in SE Portland, and John’s Marketplace in SW Portland.
Long before Oregon became renowned for its craft beers, Higgins has offered a beer list that champions local brewers alongside expertly curated Belgians ales. Learn more about Higgins at and follow the restaurant on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, using hashtag #Higgins25.
