To help kick off the “summer season” a week early, pFriem Family Brewers will be hosting Hood River’s popular barbecue truck Grasslands Barbecue.

The weekend before Memorial Day Weekend, pFriem will bring in Grasslands Barbecue to the brewer’s Cascade Locks, Oregon facility on Saturday, May 20th for three beer and barbecue sessions. These sessions will take place from 11:00am-1:00pm, 1:30 -3:30pm, and 4:00-6:00 pm.

Grasslands Barbecue was co-founded by Brendon Bain, Drew Marquis and Sam Carroll while the three faced a few challenges during the early days of the pandemic. Since opening and mainly selling their barbecue from a truck in Hood River, Oregon, the trio has been garnering some fine accolades. And the most important one, the long lines each day just south of Ferment Brewing where Grasslands Barbecue parks its truck.

In addition to their more permanent spot in Hood River, Grasslands Barbecue does a few pop-ups from time to time. They’ve been to Ruse Brewing in Portland a few times and have even made it up to Seattle at Holy Mountain Brewing. Next stop on the pop-up itinerary is pFriem Family Brewers in Cascade Locks.

For the pFriem Cascade Locks Pop-Up, the brewer will be serving a wide array of pFriem beers all paired with a full spread of Grasslands smoked meats. The full menu is still being finalized but expect 18 hour smoked brisket, a pFriem inspired sausage, and multiple seasonal sides!

Tickets include a pFriem and Grasslands branded stainless steel pint cup, limited edition hat, and a Grasslands Platter with 3 meats and 2 sides (as well as vegetarian options) and three pFriem beers to wash it all down. Each two-hour session is priced at $100 each and can be purchased by clicking here.

This sounds like a perfect afternoon of beer and BBQ with sweeping views of the Columbia River Gorge!
