Along with sampling the pies that Portland offers, I often like to pair pie with the many fantastic beers that the area has to offer. My brother-in-law picked up this brew from Hillsboro-based Ambacht, a Belgian-inspired brewery.
The brewery is fairly new to the scene, but they are making some tasty brews that are now available at bottle shops and grocery stores in the area.
I really enjoyed this beer, it had a good balance of sweetness and tart and you could definitely get a nice hint of the pie cherry flavor. The beer was infused with fresh, local Montmorency pie cherries.
You can visit the Ambacht brewers in Hillsboro on Thursdays from 4 to 6 p.m. and they are also at the Orenco Station Farmers Market for the season Sundays from 10 to 2 p.m.
