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!

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.
