The first time I ever had a beer from Logsdon Farmhouse Ales was actually in Sweden, at Brewdog bar in Gothenburg. It was their Seizoen Bretta on tap, and it was delicious. After that I’ve had that same beer and Kili Wit several times at different places in NYC. Little did I know then, that one day l would live just an hour from the brewery.
On one of our first weekends living in Portland we took a trip to Hood River to get some of that fresh Oregon air and paid a visit to the Logsdon Barrel House & Taproom . The brewery is located on the head brewer Dave Logsdon’s property and is not open for public. The taproom was quite recently opened and looked really nice, but was quite empty. It was lunch time on a Sunday and they didn’t serve any food (Double Mountain and Pfriem were packed). I think they have a deli open inside during weekdays though.
They had 12 beers on tap, with two of them being guest taps. They do bottle pours from some of their bombers which is a big plus. I had a pour of Peche ‘n’ Brett, which was amazing! The aroma! The taste! There was so much peach in it. It was like someone had crushed a peach in the glass the second after it was poured. WOW! I enjoyed it a lot (as you can tell) and can highly recommend it.
The Peche ‘n’ Brett is their Seizoen Bretta aged on oak barrels and loaded with tons (TONS) of local organic peaches. So expect it to be fruity and tart. This is their fourth release. I intend to come back here again. And again. And again. Too bad I can’t visit the brewery. Cheers!
