Stopped by this last 4th of July weekend.

A: It was mid day sunday, and this place was PACKED!! It was the 4th of july weekend, so it was to be expected. The place was filled with tourist and locals alike all havng a great time with friends and family enjoying the food and great beer. The place has a very "homey" feel to it, I could see myself in here during the nasty winter weather months.

Q: Everyone of their beers was very unique in their own special way. The spruce ale was very interesting. Their IIPA (16th Chapel?) is to DIE for as well as the Vortex IPA. Also their oatmeal pale ale is very good as well. Everything is worth trying.

S: The service was great (even when it was crazy busy) but I docked them for one reason: They need to know their beer. I asked for some general information on one of their beers and one of the guys behind the bar of all places try to spit some BS answer up. He clearly didn't know what he was talking about and it made him look stupid. Other then that, everything was great.

S: Amazing. They have a huge selection of their beers from their regular beers to their seasonals all lined up on a huge chalk board up above the bar. They even have some guest taps that are always worth checking out as well.
(*hint* get the taster tray, you wont be disappointed).

F: We didn't have much of their food (we were more interested in the beer), but from what we had it was excellent.

V: Typical bar brewery price, nothing really shocking here. Growlers where only $11 for a fill.

Fort George is an excellent place to check out if you are in the area. They have awesome beer and awesome ways for taking it to go. (They have bad ass swing top growlers as well as various sizes of mason jars).

I've been to around 100 or so breweries/brewpubs/tasting rooms and Fort George is one of the best. Every year it seems to continue to evolve for the better. At this point there are three separate areas to grab a beer: the first floor, upstairs, and the tasting room located next door in their packaging and storing facility. Each area offers a different list of beers to choose from and a separate menu as well. Though it's a blast to bounce between all three, I find it very difficult to leave the taproom. During my visits, the bartenders were so friendly and fun to chat with that we didn't want to go anywhere else.

Of course the beer is wonderful, whether it's the standard lineup (Vortex IPA, Cavatica Stout, OPA) or one off/seasonal (Kentucky Coffee Girl, Fresh Hop IPA, Tender Loving Empire and many others) it's tough to go wrong.

As for food the upstairs focuses on wood fired pizza, the downstairs has sausages, fish and chips (among the best I've ever had), and tacos. Out in the tasting room, it seems to vary more often but the Thai curry that we had during one trip was, according to my girlfriend, as good as anything she had in Thailand.

All of the employees seemed very happy, and that translates to great service. The people of Astoria are lucky to have such a wonderful place as their local brewpub.

The wife and I drove from Portland to Astoria on a Sunday night and got to this little sleepy coastal town late enough (early for the rest of the world) that most everything was closed. Except for Fort George! Open until 11pm on a Sunday, not too bad.

The brewery is located in an old industrial building and is rather vast. There is an upstairs section with a pizza oven, tables, a stage for live music and plenty of room to roam, plus some big windows to look at the Columbia River. The downstairs area is much smaller, with only a couple of tables and a long bar. We chilled at a high-top table around the bar and enjoyed a good time.

The bartender was extremely efficient and attentive and we got some of the best service ever. I am very demanding when it comes to service (average is not good enough), but this guy delivered and then some.

There are 12 taps, all of house-made beer. Because of "Stout Month", eight of them were dark beers, including Cavatica, Dark Matter (aged in Pinot Noir and Bourbon), Coffee Girl, Up in Smoke, Murky Pearl, Squashed Stout, Spank and Viva la Stout.

I appreciate all the inventiveness that goes on these stouts (Mexican chocolate, spices, oysters, you name it) but they all taste kind of the same to me, unfortunately. The wife had a Vortex IPA, damn good. We bought a four-pack of cans but forgot it at the hotel.

The pizza here is glorious, crispy and thin, although it is a little expensive and the truffle-cheese we got was not very truffle-y. We also shared a nice salmon spread on pita and I had an oyster from Willapa Bay to die for.

Check out the spiral staircase and climb it up to go to the upper floor! This place is fantastic.

I really like this place and we got there whenever we're in Astoria. Old building with historical value which is neat. They've added a outdoor patio since we were there last. The inside is a little worn looking and could use a little TLC. Food is good but not great. Pizza is served upstairs only so we've never tried it. If your in Astoria I think it's worth a visit. Beer is good.

Astoria was one of our destinations on a Pacific Northwest trip and Fort George was one place I wanted to go. It did not disappoint. They had about a dozen of their beers on tap with two guest beers. They covered many beer styles from lager to ipa to wit to stout. Easily something for everyone. We did the sampler tray and glasses of the Beta 2.3 IPA and Truffle Shuffle Stout (Astoria is home to the house from the Goonies). Each beer was solid to outstanding. All pints were $4.50 which was reasonable for the quality of what was being served.

Service was terrific. Explaining each of the beers in depth on the sampler tray, checking on us several times, etc. For food, we had the house made sausage sampler which was very good. We got a couple of four packs of the Vortex IPA which was my favorite beer and a four pack of the whiskey rye aged Cavatica Stout. Just a great experience overall. These are top notch brews in a fun place.
