HOOD RIVER, Ore. — Oregon’s pFriem Family Brewers’ first releases of 2018 are dynamic and distinctive: the opening act for a list of over 100 artisan beers that the prolific brewery will release in the coming months. To start out the year, fans will find the following beers (among others) from the Pacific Northwest brewery.
Mosaic Pale: Deep within the arid climate of Washington’s Yakima Valley grows the Mosaic Hop, a newcomer that makes its debut in the pFriem Mosaic Single Hop Pale. This seasonal strong ale glows with an amber hue. Wafts of mango and citrus tease the senses just long enough before its assertive taste takes over with hits of lemon, pine and a slight tinge of blueberry. Make no mistake; this ale has a bright and tasty future.
Hoppy Belgian Ale: pFriem’s Hoppy Belgian Ale is a light, dynamic brew, with notes of papaya, strawberry, mint and wildflower honey. Creamy with a soft round finish, this seasonal Belgian looks like spun gold. And tastes like it, too.
IPA: When the first Pale Ales were sailed around the Cape to arrive in India in the early 18th century, outcries of “Zounds! Jolly good! and Huzzah!” were heard across the East Indian subcontinent. Similar exclamations are to be expected when sniffing the piney aroma and tasting the big hops, huge citrus and candy-like malt of pFriem’s own IPA. Drink up, Guv’nor.
