pFriem Family Brewers and Mt. Hood Meadows Team Up For a Morel Mushroom Beer Dinner

Mt. Hood Meadows takes its next beer dinner into the woods when it partners with pFriem Family Brewers on a Morel Mushroom Beer Dinner. The dinner will take place on Saturday, June 17th at Mt. Hood Meadows and will feature one of the flavorful morel mushroom.

This upcoming dinner will celebrate the season’s harvest of morel mushrooms. Mt. Hood Meadows Executive Chef Daniel Dehay has created a menu to pair with uniquely tasteful and complimenting five of pFriem’s beers.

When it comes to mushrooms, I would place morels at the top of the heap. They are terrifically versatile, are wonderful on their own and add great depth of earthy flavor to any dish that includes them. Even though morels are not a cheap option, because of their very short growing season, their arrival in stores is a very special occasion, and I have even heard more than one chef call them “the herald of summer.” – (Food Network Blog)
