From Pfriem (pronounced Freem) we drove a few blocks to Double Mountain Brewery. This brewery is located in an older warehouse building downtown. They have live music frequently, and the place was packed with folks eating their house-made pizzas and drinking the beers. They had a lot of different beers to choose from, but they seemed to really shine with the IPA and DIPA in classic Northwest fashion. The Lulu saison with pink peppercorns, hibiscus and rose hips was subtle and wonderful. I didn't try the whole line-up due to a distinct lack of room in my stomach, and since Sj didn't want to share the hoppy beers with me. One day she'll start drinking IPA! The brewpub proper had an old pizza joint feel to it and seemed to be filled mainly with locals, a very popular place.

This has become my favorite location in Hood River. This is in spite of the lack of a view such as can be found in the other brewpubs in the town. The food menu is primarily pizza and salads. I usually order the Hop Lava which is an IPA. Most of the time I find it to be competitive which some of the best that Oregon has to offer, however, at times it has been disappointing at best.

On a recent trip to Portland I stopped in at Double Mountain for lunch on the recommendation of some friends who had recently visited. I ordered the taster tray and a sandwich. I was impressed by all the beers they brewed. Being a home brewer and a beer geek I was intrigued by the fact they used a Pilsner malt for their base malt in all their brews (as opposed to 2-row pale). This gave all their beers a unique malt character that did not detract at all from the overall flavor even if it wasn't true to the style; something I am going to try soon. The sandwich was an excellent accompaniment to the beer, one of the best grinders I have had in a long time. Definitely a brewery I will be recommending to others and coming back to soon.

Brother and I were in Hood River to visit Full Sail and made the 2 block trip to Double Mountain. Pretty much a local lounge; I'm sure a treat away from the "big" brewery for the locals, but just a one-stop for us.

I had an interesting-sounding India Red Pale; an unremarkable beer.

We enjoyed the relaxed and local atmosphere, but there really isn't much ro recommend with this stop, other than an additional experience while in Hood River

Start your day with driving 150 miles in a huge U-Haul filled your Mother-in-Laws belongings as she follows in her car. Where do you stop for lunch? But of course a brewery you have never been to before. Yes take her with you for the experience. Double Mountain brewery was the lucky winner and Hood River Oregon was the stop. I can say this for sure I did not make the maps nor the addresses for this town so finding this place was not super easy. We drove all over and then finally came across it with a bit of luck and help from 411. About one block from Full Sail the giant in the area. Can we say Double Mountain is putting it out there to compete with Full Sail. Another rustic look brew pub with great coloring inside. I am sure an old building that did something back in it’s day. Lets say it made fuggle binders or something. They are fairly new in the brewing game so they had a limited availability of brews. The server also explained it was, “Season” right now so it was a packed night every night with windsurfers. They drink everything the wind blows at them. Was able to try the 5 they had on tap and they where very nice. The food was also on a limited menu but what they had was very good. Pub fair the food hit the spot adding to my energy level for another 150 mile drive. Kids are Ok for the place and they have a kids menu. Hours are limited as of now for the weekdays so call ahead not to be disappointed and they are not open. I am pretty sure they are catering to the Windsurfers and when they blow in. Ha ha

A hot (over 100 degrees!) Hood River day ("never gets this hot" said one local) brought us to Double Mountain brewery (after a stop at Horsefeathers) and glad we came.
Wife Persimmon and I have visited this town (population 4000+) several times and always come back for the atmosphere, the community feeling that permeates and, let's see -- there was something else!
Oh, right.
The beer!
Now Horsefeathers (or Big Horse Brewery) has our vote for the best brew & pub-food in town. The sweet potato fries with Thai peanut sauce canNOT be beat. Paired with their Mac Scottish ale & a burger...heaven. And then, there's the view from 50+ feet above street level of the Columbia river. Well, to repeat myself, it can't be beat.
But the guys who recently behind Double Mountain have a good thing going as well...and, judging by the number of bumper stickers we saw, others are talking notice.
2 blocks down and a block over from Horsefeathers, their place is smaller, their beers much hoppier (if you like that), their service somewhat slower but I get them credit for their inspiration. The owners were one-time Full Sail brewers who got fed up (the reasons remain mum) and hence, Double Mountain.
After dinner and beers at Horsefeathers following a spectacular hike through a part of the historic Columbia gorge full of waterfalls, it was still twilight at 8:00 pm so a walk was in order. That turned into an impromptu chat with two 20-somethings from Portland about beer which lasted a good 30-minutes before a trio of comely blonds asked one of them if their empty chair was taken. But in that time, I had an Uber-brown which wasn't -- the tell-tale coffee aroma & taste with bitter finish identified it strictly as a damn good porter. Persimmon sampled it as well and came to the same conclusion. I was happy...but the sun had set and it was time to go. Besides, the "boys" had other business at hand. Been a long time since I felt that invisible. Still sitting outside, talking & drinking beer with friendly folk -- that's what these experiences are supposed to be about so Double Mountain rates high on the list...as does little Hood River and it's ability to support (3) brewpubs. We were told that another is scheduled to open before the summer is out just across the Columbia in smaller White Salmon, Washington.
Have to make another trip.
Damn.

A fairly small but roughly square place with windows on two sides letting in light. A number of tables and a couple couches as well as seating at the bar make this a comfortable, light space to have a beer. We didn’t try the food, but the menu seemed to interesting with more unusual choices.

Many of the beers did not seem to be particularly true to style, possibly because they seem to brew them all with the same organic German-style malts. For example, the IPA was made with Pilsner & Munich malts, neither of which are appropriate and it did taste strange for the style. It still tasted good, however, the pub is a nice space, and it is only a short walk from Full Sail, so I’d happily give it another try.

Now I know why there is a shortage of hops. These guys used them all! Nice big hoppy Northwest beers are the order of the day. This is a great spot to sit and relax in Hood River. Since we were on a tour of the area we had to limit ourselves to the sampler tray but every one of the eight beers they had to offer were very good. Although we didn't eat the food looked very good as well. The next time you find yourself up the gorge looking for beer this is a must stop.
