A: Saturday afternoon I pulled up, front row street parking, pretty lively modern place. Inside was nice. L shaped bar upfront with some seating off the to left of the door. Very open and spacious. Brewing equipment within sight on the floor. Struck up some good beer and bar talk. Lively, youthful, clean and energetic crowd and atmosphere.

Q: Pfriem beers range from mediocre to good for me. All of the beers I had were good in quality meaning no spoilage/infection or so on

S: Service behind the bar was slow. I sat there for a while and the serve never even provided a menu until I asked deep into my first beer. When my entree(burger) was brought to me I received no ketchup or silverware. Fail. The service was friendly, she was solo and perhaps a tad bit overworked.

S: A pretty decent range stylistically. Something to please everyone: IPA's , Pils, Begians...so on. Bout 8 different offerings

F: My food was good, minus the condiments and silverware. I just ate my dry burger caveman style.

Went here finally yesterday, I've been meaning to check this place out for quite a while. They brew mostly Belgian style ales, not my favorite style but most of the beers I had were good. I ended up sharing one of their sample trays which was quite large, 12 samples. I liked the darker ones the best the Belgian strong dark and Belgian Stout. The menu was small but had some good looking offerings on it. Ended up having onion ring they were some of the best onion rings i've ever had, they came with a tarragon aioli sauce. The atmosphere was great, although I could see how it could be very cramped in there on a busy weekend. Overall a cool place worth checking out especially if Belgian style beers are your thing.

this is a belgian beer establishment, and i don't care for belgians, so i don't make it here often. when i do, i usually go with whatever ipa they have handy, which is always really good. that said, the food here is outstanding. i've had a couple different salads and burgers, and they were excellent. service is really good too. last time i was in they were expanding so they must be doing well for themselves. i've also been informed they have a killer happy hour, like a burger and a beer for $6? if this is true i will be here frequently.

Yuuum. 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. (Double Mountain and pFriem make for a great day).

Way down by the water - a new and very sanitary brewery location. I was quite excited to visit Pfriem after being extremely impressed with the beer that started to show up in Seattle over the past few months.

Just an hour away from Portland but galaxies away from the grimy faux-hipster scene. I felt like I was in Iceland, or Sweden with really subdued music playing, gorgeous scenery, weird blonde kids running around, etc.

Pfriem makes wonderful beer - all of it, i think. So delicate, so fresh - the glassware is beautiful as well. The food looked great, every last bit of it, but after eating a Reggie Deluxe earlier in the morning in Portland I was set on food for a few days.

Service was odd - very nice, and striking, women operating the bar but offering me a beer seemed one of the most distant thoughts from their minds. Maybe it was the intoxicating sunlight or the Sunday drag, but it was awkward.

Any brewpub with three Saisons on-tap is ok by me!

Pfriem is located kind of in an industrial complex but new and modern. The exterior of the building is followed inside. Clean lines, modern, sleek but not cold at all. Laidback and family-friend but clearly a brewery as the tanks are in full display. I can think of a couple places that have tried to mimic this vibe but failed. Pfriem nailed it. Modern and cool but not stale, difficult to do correctly.

The three of us sat at the bar. Service was perfect. We were offered samples and tips. She asked us where we from and once we mention we were on a “beer vacation” she suggested we visit Logsdon and Solera Brewery while were in the area. Thank you for those tips!!!

I opted for a glass of the Saison and it was spot on. Top five US brewed Saison I have had (and I am sucker for a Saison). We ended up sampling about six different beers. The Triple was as good as any American brewed Triple I have had. Belgian Strong Dark was stellar and the Little Saison was fantastic too. Also, the Belgian White was perfect, not too sweet or overly spiced. They did have a couple hoppy beers for the non-Belgian enthusiast.

Limited food menu but enough options for everybody. I thought my Ruben was very good but maybe a tad dry (but I’m from Omaha – HOME of the Ruben Sandwich). Still, I enjoyed the food.

A gem of a brewery. The beer alone is worth a stop. The vibe and service was icing on a cake.
