pFriem Family Brewers

The story of pilsner starts in 19th century Bohemia when a Bavarian monk smuggled a special yeast to a brewmaster in Pilsen. The world’s first blond lager, the original Pilsner Urquell, is still produced there today.


The story of pFriem Pilsner starts in the Pacific Northwest, Josh Pfriem a Seattle native who’s love of beer sent him bicycling around Belgium, concocting batches in a shed in his backyard, tracking down the best brewers around and needling them for information. He spent most of his early years divided between skiing and home brewing. His first real job was at the Utah Brewers Cooperative and he was hooked.

pFriem Family Brewers
He worked at the legendary local Will Kemper’s Chuckanut Brewery before landing at Full Sail in Hood River, OR. While in Hood River he met his future partners, Ken Whiteman and Rudy Kellner and that lead to pFriem Family Brewers. They shared a deep love of family, the Columbia River Gorge and of course, great beer — but more importantly, each brought his own unique skill set to the table, creating the means and vision to not only make great beer, but to operate a great business. In August 2012, pFriem Family Brewers opened its doors for the first time, and the three founders realized the beginning of their unique dream.

pFriem Family Brewers

Today, pFriem is on just about everyone Top list of great PNW Breweries. They stand apart in their crafting of world class Pilsner. Pilsner might be ubiquitous in the macro lane. But, it takes a deft hand and dedication to make great craft Pilsner. Josh Pfriem does just that.
pFriem Pilsner

“Aroma of fresh grass and flowers and a touch of honey. While there are no monks involved in this pilsner, there is still a crisp and spicy finish.”
ABV: 4.9%
IBUs: 38
Served at: 40 – 45° F
Hops: Perle, Saphir, Tettnang, Spalt Select
