About Us


About Us


About us

Established in 1988, Big Horse Brew Pub was originally "Horsefeathers Fine Dining and Spirits." Randy Orzeck was set to open for business and the OLCC told him he had to choose a name for his new restaurant. He did not have one in mind. Randy thought “without a name, I can’t put in an application, and being from the East Coast, he thought, ‘Horsefeathers,’” an expression of exasperation that stands in for a less-polite phrase. "‘Horsefeathers’ — bam — pretty simple.”

In 1988, the food scene in Hood River in was very different, there wasn’t much in terms of fine dining. Horsefeathers Fine Food and Spirits ran for about six years as a restaurant complete with carrots cut into the shape of roses, set around fancy dishes such as rack of lamb.

Today, Hood River has emerged as a culinary and wine destination. As the restaurant scene in Hood River changed, owners Randy and Susan Orzeck decided it was a time for the restaurant to change as well. Change began with the idea that instead of competing to be the fanciest, and splitting the business, let’s be a pub. Enter Big Horse Brew Pub, with Orzeck teaching himself to brew beer. Randy often jokes that Big Horse was his wedding present to Susan.

Big Horse Brew Pub is the original brew pub in all of Hood River.

We look forward to bringing you in as a part of our Big Horse family!
