Mt. Hood Brewing Company

Another entry for my beer travelogue…

MT. HOOD, Oregon, August 2015 — With the weather turning colder, I’m reminiscing about my late summer trip to Oregon. My trip took me from the mountains to the sea, and to a couple of brewpubs in-between.

The highlight of my meeting on Mt. Hood…

Mt Hood

…was dinner at Mt. Hood Brewing Company.

I was most impressed with: The line-up of beers was solid, but I really enjoyed the food. The appetizer menu included Pub Fry Poutine, and anytime I can get Poutine in the States, I am one happy customer.

And oh by the way: Mt. Hood Brewing Company offers a dog menu on their patio with six menu items, including Peanut Butter Bacon Biscuits and Frozen Yogurt Peanut Butter Balls. How cool is that!
