About pFriem Family Brewers

Do things happen for a reason? 

Josh Pfriem had been on this career path his entire adult life — soaking up brewing knowledge, devouring literature, concocting experimental varietals in his shed, biking across Belgium, professionally brewing, and knocking on the doors and picking the brains of some of the greatest brewers in the world.  

It was a seemingly random introduction at a child’s birthday party in 2011 however, that allowed Josh, Ken Whiteman and Rudy Kellner to form the brain trust that would eventually lead to the launch and rapid growth of pFriem Family Brewers. They shared a deep love of family, the Columbia River Gorge and of course, great beer — but more importantly, each brought his own unique skill set to the table, creating the means and vision to not only make great beer, but to operate a great business.  

A year-and-a-half and thousands of hours of hard work later, in August 2012, pFriem Family Brewers opened its doors for the first time, and the three founders realized the beginning of their unique dream. If things do happen for a reason, then what better reason than to champion family, community and create one of the world’s best Premium Craft Beers to be enjoyed by all who love them? We can’t think of one.
