Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the Breweries of the Hood River Valley
St Patrick’s Day in the Hood River Valley is complete with award winning Pacific Northwest Brew and Hood River Bed and Breakfasts.
Immigrants began to move into Oregon Territory in the 1840’s. German brewer Henry Saxer arrived in 1852, tasted the clear, soft water and recognized the prime hop and grain potential. He, along with fellow immigrant Henry Weinhard, began brewing and the rest is history.
