As Higgins continues its 25th Anniversary throughout the month of March, the longtime Portland restaurant has just released its beer that it collaborated on with pFriem Family Brewers.

Higgins Anniversary Ale is a Belgian-style farmhouse saison that was brewed with Calamondin oranges, cardamon, and green peppercorn. The beer features notes of lemon and spice, though it finishes delicate and dry. The beer was a collaborative effort of James Beard award-winning chef Greg Higgins; chef de cuisine Patrick Strong; beer steward Pauly Miller; and the brewers at pFriem Family Brewers.

Higgins Anniversary Ale is available on draft only at the restaurant and at pFriem Family Brewers in Hood River, Oregon. The beer is also available in a limited number of cage and cork 375mL bottles at Higgins, Belmont Station, and John’s Marketplace.
