FOTM Brewing Co. took the Bend Brewfest by storm this last weekend. We poured Mountain Lite and Big Vern IPA for the masses, and both were very well received. If you've never been to this fest, check it out next year, they put on a heck of a party down there in Bend. We also brought down a couple kegs to our friends at El Sancho taqueria, so check out their delicious tacos and grab an FOTM pint if you head down there for the Eclipse.
Hey wing-heads. Tomorrow is National Chicken Wing Day! No better way to celebrate than at Fire on the Mountain with a big frisbee of free range wings and a FOTM Brewing Co. beer. One of our wing specialists, Gerry Lentino, appeared on KGW's Portland Today this morning to show viewers how to sauce the perfect wing. Check it out here.
We certainly do! Our newest location on NE Fremont and 57th has been firing off some of Portland's most underrated pizza since 2011. We serve a Neo Neapolitan, New York neighborhood style pie. Sauce and dough are made in house daily. It's cooked super hot and fast to give it that perfect char on the crust. Some house favorites are the "Almost Famous Buffalo Chicken, the Fig & Prosciutto pie, and the Susan's Sausage and Peppers pie. Try it out the next time you are in at the Fremont store, and grab a house brewed beer while you're at it!
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!
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!
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
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!
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.
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.
