Neil Brent

MASTER BREWER

 

Neil's background in chemistry, his previous work at Wy'East Labs, culturing hundreds of yeast strains, for the beer, wine and cider industries, along with his passion and artful sense for making exceptional beers are evident when tossing back one of our small batch, house brewed lagers and ales. We are very fortunate to have Neil as our brewer!  

When Neil is not brewing he's most likely growing exotic mushrooms that he sells at the local farmers markets.

Susan & Randy 

OWNERS/OPERATORS

Susan, born and raised in Chippewa Falls WI, two blocks from Leinenkugel's Brewery was somehow destined to end up in the brewing world.  More often than not, you see Susan on the floor, working side by side with her staff trying to make every customers day a little bit better.

Out of the pub Susan loves to Ski, Hike, SUP, and practice yoga.

Randy originally from the East coast, migrated to Hood River in 1981 following his passion for windsurfing.  With experience in building and seeing a need for a new dining offering, he decided to build and open what was then Horsefeathers Fine Food & Spirits.  Shortly thereafter,  unable to get fresh pasta, he created Justa Pasta Co.  Within 4 years and with 82 Portland restaurants buying his pasta he moved this company to Portland.  Next w/ the desire to brew beer leave fine dining, and serve "real food for real people", he purchase the 4 bbl brew system that still resides in the cellar and changed the business name to Big Horse Brew Pub.  

When not in the pub you'll find Randy on the River, chasing wind big wind, kiteboarding! 

 

 

 

Justin Crowley

CHEF

 

While "Justy" fancies himself the face that runs the place, Susan takes the true title.  He is however, instrumental and invaluable, in bringing the kitchen to life, designing our seasonal menus, working side by side with his kitchen crew , and so much more!   Justin was born in Hood River, and has a passion for making remarkable food and for learning. He's just opened his own business as well, a food cart called "Noodle Heaven" in Hood River.

When not at the pub or working on his new endeavor, and when the weather permits, you'll find Justin out on the river Stand Up Paddling.  If not he's an avid gamer and professional sports fan!

About us

We opened our doors in 1988, as Horsefeathers Fine Food & Spirits, a fine dining establishment.  Six years later, with a desire to brew our own beer we put our 4 barrel brewery in the cellar below the building, changed our name to Big Horse Brew Pub, and created a more casual pub menu and atmosphere.  We are extremely proud to be Hood River's oldest brewpub, now celebrating our 30th Anniversary serving our local community and travelers to the Gorge.  Its been our continued goal to make your experience with us as positive as possible.  Thanks from all of us at The Big Horse who support our families serving you!
