One of the most beautiful places I've ever had a beer. It's an awesome experience to be at the barn/brewery drinking amazing beer with an equally amazing view. Everyone we met was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Truly an awesome place, I can't wait to go back.

A bit biased on this review considering this is one of my favorite brewers, and in terms of style of beer, hands down my favorite.
The visit to logsdon's farmhouse is a bit of an experience. Your navigation tells you the destination is on the left, and you're left thinking you're about to just walk onto someones property, ready for someone to walk out with a shotgun. Not the case obviously.
It was very humbling to see where my favorite beer comes from, off a small for in a red farmhouse.
We were greeted as soon as we got out of the car, and started off trying a tapped version of their Seizen, Seizon Bretta, and the titan of them all, Peche n Brett. He then popped open a bottle of the recent batch of Cerasus. It's $5 for a flight but you don't have to pay it if you're going to buy bottles he said. He explained the backgrounds of the labels, gave some hints to some upcoming projects/brews, and gave us some stories of the farm.
It was an awesome experience enjoying our brew on the farm with a beautiful view of mount hood.
I'd make the drive out there for that again for sure.

A friend of mine wanted to drive down to Portland for the weekend to tour a few breweries and pick up some hard to find beers. He suggested that we take the extra time to head to Logsdon. It was definitely worth it. We arrived fairly early and were the only ones there at the time. After taking in the beautiful scenery and perfect setting we were invited in by a very friendly gentleman.
He immediately poured us our first tasting and told us about the brewery, some of the history, etc. Whenever we were finished it was on the next. We were able to sample the Seizon, Seizon Bretta, Cerasus, Peche 'n Brett, and Kili Witt. Unfortunately, the Oak Aged Bretta wasn't available which was sad because we all wanted to try it. They were all excellent, as was expected. I didn't really care for the Kili. It could have been because it was the last beer we sampled and it has a much lighter taste. Throughout the entire tasting process the host was happy to answer any questions that we had. We all left with multiple bottles and various gift items. We all later wished that we had purchased more as some of them are hard to find in our area. (WA)
All in all it was an awesome experience. The view alone is worth it. By the time we left it started to fill in, so I was glad we were able to get there early and have a more private experience. We visited other breweries and had a great time, but this was definitely the highlight of the trip for me. If you're ever out anywhere near Hood River I would definitely make the trip.

Without question this is the coolest brewery I’ve ever been too. Sure, state-of-the-art places like New Belgium are impressive or beautiful breweries like New Glarus are something to behold as well but Logsdon is unique. It’s a true farmhouse ale brewery. (Was I in Belgium?) We were tipped off about this place from the bartender at Pfriem Family Brewers (killer place too). It was about 20 minutes out of our way but worth it. This brewery is off the beaten path. We visited on a Saturday afternoon. The slightly cloudy, drizzly weather helped set the mood of this little red barn brewery. We sort of guessed we were pulling into the right place. I said the doors on the barn looked like “brewery” doors. Once we headed up the drive way we notice an old truck with their logo painted on it. We might have noticed it sooner but we were transfixed with the scenic beauty of the hills and trees… and the horses and cows in the front yard!
Two guys were leaving when we walked into the small tasting room attached to the brewery. It was just the three of us and our host. Before we said “hi” to the older gentleman he was already getting glassware and beers ready for us to sample. We sampled 5 beers through the course of our stay. He gave us a tour of the brewery too. We took lots of pictures. Lots of old “Sci-Fi” equipment and gadgets in the cobbled together brewery. Super cool.
All the beers were excellent. I bought a bottle and a keychain and he waved the $5 charge for tasters for all 3 of us. We had a great conversation and just an amazing time. We were so thankful the bartender at Pfriem told us about this place. If you are in the Hood River area this is a must go. Check the hour Logsdon is open however. Maybe the highlight of my Portland vacation.
