Donation Night for Providence Cancer Center

Join us on April 25th from 5-close to help raise funds for Providence Cancer Center. One of our employees, Nikki Wood, and her team will participate in the Hood to Coast race this summer and we are supporting them by donating 25% of sales from all three Portland locations to Providence Cancer Center! Come enjoy some wings and beer and help fight cancer at the same time!

Aloha!

Kona 10.jpg

We just got back from the Kona brew fest on the big island! This was our fourth year in a row, and we are starting to wonder why we don't have a restaurant down there. We featured our Big in Japan IPA and Kettle Black Schwarzbier, which were both received very well! Come try one at our restaurants and get a little piece of that Aloha vibe!

Get Saucy on Super Bowl

Well folks, it's that special time of year.  That time when Tom Brady, Bill Bellichek and co. try to add to their closet full of Super Bowl hardware.  Will Matt Ryan and his high-octane offense be able to challenge the old guard?  Who knows...but one thing we do know is that you owe it to yourself and your country to be eating some wings and preferably Fire on the Mountain wings on Super Bowl Sunday.  If you are planning to make your own wings on this quasi-holiday, you can still add that Fire on the Mountain touch without setting foot in our restaurants.  Our sauces are now available in Safeway and Fred Meyer in addition to Whole Foods, New Seasons, Market of Choice and Food Front.  Insider tip: FOTM bottles are currently onsale at Safeway for $6.  You can also buy our sauces in each of our stores as well as on our website at www.portlandwings.com     

 

Tap Room is now pouring!

FOTM Brewing is proud to announce the opening of our brand new tap room at Fremont.  You can find this cool space at the south end of the Fremont building, next to our brewery.  For the time being, we will be open on Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. until about 10 p.m.   We have four beers of our delicious brew on tap and a selection of some fine whiskeys.  Think Elmer T. Lee, Hibiki and Pappy Van Winkle.  This is a great spot to wait for your table at Fremont or just a nice, chill space to enjoy some quality libations and some good tunes.  We've also got Portland's best spicy peanuts!

 

EL MUERTO is here.....

Are you ready for your tastebuds to be hit by a blitzkrieg of spice and flavor? El Muerto will be rearing it's spicy head for one week, starting this Tuesday (10/25). Think Carolina reaper peppers; ghost peppers; scorpion peppers; habaneros; jalapenos; marionberries; black pepper, horseradish and more.

Friends of FOTM

We are very fortunate to have worked with some very talented, creative and hard-working folks in this great community of ours.  We often have customers asking us who painted a certain painting or designed a certain shirt and much more.  So, we just wanted to take a moment to share some of the well-deserved credit.  While we won't get to everyone in this post, feel free to inquire if you notice something that you like in our restaurants.

First off, you may have noticed our new brewery logo. This sweet design was created by Jessica Vollendorf.  This lively design came at a time where our brewery really started to pick up some steam.    

Now that Fremont has been open for almost 5 years, you have probably noticed the cool sign by our back entrance. This sign was created by the über-creative Travis Pond.  Check it out.  He also designed the railing and metal chickens inside Fremont.

Speaking of the brewery, we started bottling our Shocks of Sheba a few months back.  Frank Zurbano came up with the rad design, based on an idea by brewer Ben.  We've since decided to bottle our Electric Mud Oatmeal Stout which will be happening in early November.  That amazing image was created by Tracy Taylor with the help of the aforementioned Frank "Iceman" Zurbano.  Frank also happens to be the greatest living bocce player on the planet.

  Recently, we have also put a lot of work and love into our "baby" restaurant aka Interstate or the OG.  We've refinished the floors, tables, benches, painted the inside and outside of the building.  The woodwork on the bar, tables and benches was done by Terry Dote of DesignFab.  The meticulous and bright painting job was performed by none other than John Cox Paining.

Our beer board at Fremont as well as our menu boards at Interstate and Burnside were designed by the incomparable Eona.

We get lots of inquiries about our mosaic lights at Fremont and Interstate and fireplace.  These were designed by local legend Mary of Hail Mary fame.

We'd also like to give a shout out to one of bartenders at Fremont who also has a thriving photography business.  That is Ryan Beane of Ryan Beane photography.  Here is a photo he took this past weekend of Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon) during the Hempstalk festival.

PDX Hot Sauce Expo

We like it spicy, here at FOTM.  Way back when, before there was Fire on the Mountain, there was a dream to open a restaurant that served spicy food, somewhere on or near a mountain.  About 65 miles from Mt. Hood, FOTM has been keeping Portland spicy for almost 12 years.  That being said, we were honored to be included in the first annual PDX Hot Sauce Expo.  We were honored and we also had a blast.  With our mouths on fire, we chatted with longtime customers and visitors from other parts of the country.  The response was great and most people agreed that El Jefe is indeed no joke.  One woman did walk away after claiming it had barely any spice.  More power to her.  We also got to try some other hot sauces from around the country and world for that matter.  Adoboloco from Hawaii has some great sauces, especially their Pineapple offering. Char Man sauces from California were fresh and delicious.  Local favorites and the good folks from Secret Aardvark are always serving up some solid Jerk sauce and black bean garlic sauce. There was hot sauce made with Kombucha (Stinging Kombucah), spicy Horseradish sauce from Torchbearers, amazing spicy chili oil from local Hot Mama's salsa and some ridiculously spicy and delicious sauces from Puckerbutt as well as Cobra Chili from the land down under.  There were a bunch more delicious sauces from vendors you can check out on the PDX Hot Sauce Expo website.  http://www.pdxhotsauceexpo.com/ Not only was there omnipresent sauce, but we had the pleasure of witnessing wrestling matches, a spicy taco eating contest, a spicy pizza eating contest (we provided the pizza) and the highlight (at least for my daughter) the chihuahua beauty contest.  Thanks to our customers, staff and the good folks at HIgh River sauces for putting on a sweet, er...spicy festival that we hope continues for years to come.          

Trailblazers fan favorite Brian Grant at our Fremont location!

Ain't No Nation Like a Donation...

We love to pay it forward here at FOTM and be a positive force in the community.  We also like to roll up our sleeves and get dirty.  About a week ago, we did just that with the great local charity Friends of Trees.  We helped support a tree planting in the Cully neighborhood, while also donating some food and getting out in the field to be a part of the process.  It was great to help the neighborhood while also interacting with our neighbors and fellow employees.  In the same vein, we will be hosting one of our special charity nights on Tuesday April 19th.  On this night, we will be donating 25% of our dinner proceeds (5- close) from all 3 restaurants to the Brian Grant Foundation, which helps in the fight against Parkinson's disease.  Ex-Blazer and fan favorite Brian Grant will be in attendance at our Fremont restaurant.  So come on down and eat some wings for a great cause and get to meet one of our local heroes.  Keep Portland Kind and Generous!
