The pFriem Experience: Let's Celebrate 6 Years

A few months ago I had the opportunity to spend an evening with the pFriem staff as well as other local beer bloggers at their brewpub in Hood River, Oregon. If you are not familiar with pFriem Family Brewers, you should be. They have brewed world class beer since their inception in 2012. pFriem was founded by Josh Pfriem, Ken Whiteman and Rudy Kellner after meeting each other at a children's birthday party in 2011. They found that they all shared a love for beer, the Columbia Gorge, family and each had a unique set of skills.
