My friend and colleague Lisa Morrison sends word of the following wake to honour the memory of Don Younger. If you plan to be in the Portland, Oregon area on Sunday, February 13, I strongly encourage you to drop by the Horse Brass at 4534 SE Belmont Street.
Wake to Honor Horse Brass Publican Don Younger
PORTLAND, Ore. — The Horse Brass Pub announced Tuesday that it would be closed for regular business on Sunday, Feb. 13 for a wake to honor its owner Don Younger.
Younger, who passed away Jan. 31, was well-loved worldwide in the beer community and throughout his hometown of Portland. He is credited as a true “beer pioneer,” having owned the Horse Brass for nearly 35 years, and literally taking it from a one-tap tavern to a beer mecca featuring more than 50 taps and often named among the best beer bars in the world.
The Celebration of Don’s Life, will be held from 2-6 p.m. at the Horse Brass. The back parking lot will be tented to allow for more people to attend.
