I had the opportunity to visit the Fort George pub in Astoria yesterday and I was very impressed. This place definitely warrants a stop if you are going through Astoria, and the right-minded person might even make a special trip just to go there. I know I will definitely be going back.

When I went in, the place was almost entirely full for the lunch rush, but I got prompt and friendly service immediately. All the staff have a good understanding of the brews and the guy who helped me gave me a knowledgeable run-down of their seasonals and made recommendations. Every other staff member was top-notch as well.

There were on the order of 12 or so available beers, a couple of which I sampled. As has been my experience with their packaged beers, the draft brews were all extremely good. I did not go for their tasting flight, but according to the menu you get a 3oz taster of *everything* they have, including special brews and seasonals. If there is a tap handle for it, you are getting it -- I love this idea.

I had lunch as well, which was quite good, although the highlight here is really the beer. Prices were reasonable; doubly-so for me since I'm so accustomed to paying sales tax. Go Oregon!

One of the best brew pubs I've ever been to. They have an upstairs area which looks newer and has a restaurant feel to it. A downstairs which has a more "bar" look to it. And a tap room, which was closed when we were there. The three areas have different menus which was weird.

Ate in the pub in the upstairs area. Great views of the Columbia river and cool breeze coming thru the windows. Good mix of small tables and large community style tables. They even had board games that you could borrow to play with while there.

Had the full flight. 13 tasters for $17. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the beers and food. The beers felt out of order as we went in order many milder beers followed strong ones causing two of them to literally taste like water. The vortex, 3-way IPA, Nut red, working girl porter were my favorites. Divinity and sunshine OPA were my wife's favorites.

Friendly service all around. Great facility that is the latest thing open in Astoria. The upstairs area has a big city gastropub look/feel in a small town. Great menu, bottles, growlers and swag to go. Loved the experience but didn't like that we had to moveto the downstairs venue to get the desert we wanted. But the desert was excellent and the great service did continue downstairs. Hope to return sometime.

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.
