Wake to honor Don Younger set for Sunday

February 8th, 2011 | Posted by Real Beer

The Horse Brass Pub announced today that it would be closed for regular business on Sunday (Feb. 13) for a wake to honor its owner Don Younger, who died last week.

Younger was one of America’s pioneering publicans, and is credited with helping turn Portland and the state of Oregon into “Beervana.” He operated the Horse Brass from 1976 until his death.

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.
