It’s been two years since Fat Head’s Brewery opened the doors to its first location outside of Pennsylvania and Ohio right in Portland’s trendy Pearl District. To celebrate two years of making some of the best beers in Portland, Fat Head’s Brewery will celebrate on Thursday, November 3rd with its 2nd Year Brunch Bash! No, this will not be taking place in the early hours of the day but towards the end of the afternoon beginning at 3:00pm and lasting until 11:00pm. Best of all, Fat Head’s will be offering up Happy Hour pricing all day long!

Yes, you did read that correctly as Fat Head’s will be serving up brunch for dinner in an all you can eat buffet that begins at 6:00pm to celebrate its 2nd anniversary. For only $16.00 ($7.00 for kids) one can choose from an array of substantial brunch items. The menu will include the following.

  • Fried Chicken and Waffles served with Marionberry compote and Syrup
  • Biscuits and Sausage Gravy
  • Pork Belly Bacon, deep-fried on a stick
  • Chargrilled Breakfast Sausage
  • Devilled Eggs, complete with OG sauce and topped with either Kielbasa, House Smoked Brisket or Capers and Pickled Onions

Fat Head’s will also be hosting a Bloody Mary Bar and a specialty Shandy brewed specifically for the anniversary that can be turned into a Beermosa!

For those looking for more traditional food, Fat Head’s will offer a limited menu once the festivities begin at 3:00pm. Below is what will be on this menu.


Just in time for its 2nd anniversary and on the heels of its 2016 World Beer Cup Gold Medal and 2016 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medal, Fat Head’s Brewery will tap a fresh batch of Hop Juju Imperial IPA. This hop bomb will be featured alongside a stellar list of some of the beers that brewers Michael Hunsaker and Eric Van Tassel have been barrel aging upstairs, above the bar at Fat Head’s.
