Portland Ore. (April 14, 2016) — Imperial presents an exciting 4-course dinner inspired by Belgian style beers from Pfriem Family Brewers. Pfriem artisanal beers are symphonies of flavor and balance, influenced by the great brewers of Belgium, but unmistakably true to their homegrown roots in the Pacific Northwest. James Beard Award Winning Chef/Owner Vitaly Paley and “Top Chef” Finalist Executive Chef Doug Adams invite you to join them for a meal that explores the delectable intersection of Belgian food and drink lovingly made with local Northwest ingredients. In the traditional Belgian style, stand up, raise a glass, and toast “proost” to celebrate a night of great beer and food among friends.
