Visited on 24/05/13 around 3pm.
Pfriem is a moderan facility by the banks of Hood River with bench seating for around 30 people, plus standing space with a shelf to place your beer on, to the side overlooking the brewing kit.
There was also a pile of toys for kids to play with.
Food was available but we’d already eaten heartily at Everybody’s.
12 beers on tap - all their own brews, no bottled beers at the point of my visit, but growler fills available.
Pfriems beers are pretty solid, good mix of styles but more interesting than the typical start up brewery badly named "Mc’bollocks" scotch ale kind of rubbish.
$12 got you 6 times 4oz samplers. The mosaic single hop was top draw - 4.2 for me, the saison also stood out.
Well worth stopping by.

This place has a small bar with tables off to the left, very classy and modern, and then the brewery is right there behind you as you eat and drink. Staff is terrific. Beers are solid, as is the food. A worthwhile stop.

Located near the waterfront river access, surrounded by road trippers, anglers and wind surfers, pFriem is a large building with a small bar and a number of tables and chairs set up next to the open brewing equipment. A few renditions of saison as well as a couple of German-style lagers (pils and schwarz) makes me a happy customer. While I didn’t like their straight saison (~6%, acidic and overly phenolic) I did enjoy the petite saison (~4%, soft, lightly fruity) and their pils (though it was a little husky). A better beer experience than you’ll likely find at Full Sail, Big Horse or Double Mountain.

Awesome brewpub right on the water. Excellent selection of pFriem-only taps, who make some of the best beers in Oregon, including probably the best saisons (better than Logsdon to me!). Food is really well-done with a great assortment of stuff. Service was extremely friendly. Prices very reasonable as well. Definitely worth the trek to Hood River.

Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuum. YUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMM. Their beer is really, really good. The Black Saison is incredible. The space is industrial looking. We spent so long here that we almost missed a pre-paid dinner seating back in Portland. The drive out from Portland is really nice, so if you’re visiting Portland for beer, you should hit Hood River for an afternoon.

I literally stumbled across this place a week after they opened last summer. Although I’d sampled many Oregon breweries...this was my first trip to craftbrew heaven (aka Portland). Headed out to see the Columbia River Gorge and some windsurfing too...so that’s how I ended up here. I think the light wood interior and mixture of bar, eating area, and brewery all in one worked very well. The people were great and I met a couple of the family that owned the place. I agree with the rater before me...the IPA Belgium were great. I wish the owners the best of luck. This is a great place and I hope it succeeds.

New brewery and tasting room (opened August 4, 2012). Large industrial-style building with high-ceilings and very big windows. Right on the Columbia River. Brewery and tasting room in one space; large fermenting tanks dominate one end. Bench seating at communal tables for 24; smaller tables for 16, and 10 bar seats. A few tables outside along the street. Walls and ceiling feature lots of wood and beams reclaimed from old farms; solid-looking tables and chairs; stained concrete floor. Very friendly and careful service. They offer six Belgian-style brews on tap. A seventh is in the works. Samplers of all six available for $12 (a bit pricey). Growlers also available. Good but limited menu: seven appetizers; eight entrees; also house-grilled flatbreads. Each menu item lists a suggested beer pairing. Overall, a comfortable place. The beers are all good, with two standouts: the IPA and the Belgian IPA.
