    I've seen it all around Seattle at beer stores and grocery stores so you should definitely be seeing it.

    It's starting to show up in Seattle. Haven't seen it in Snohomish County yet. Looking forward to their outstanding beers becoming readily available around here.

    Keeping an eye out for this:

    To celebrate the first half decade, the brewery is releasing limited 22-ounce bottles of their imperial Belgo IPA known as XVIth Chapel. But it’s not just the rare emboldened brew beer geeks may have sampled before, no, this rendition is aged in Four Roses bourbon barrels and conditioned with rose hips.

    Saw Vortex IPA on tap at Elliott Bay Pizza and Pub in Mill Creek. I believe they still have a few cans of Cavatica Stout for sale as well.

    I have seen Vortext IPA at Elliott Bay as mentioned above, and at Malt and Vine as well.

    ft. george is great but I am not a fan of this new can craze, i like bottles better the beer just tastes better. its hard to describe but i drank a vortex straight out of the can and it kinda tasted like crap (prob from the chemicals in the can liner) but I have had it on tap and it one of my fav regular ipas. down with cans. i think the only reason breweries are doing it is because it is cheaper.

    Odom is distrubiting Fort George in the Seattle area. So where ever they go there should be FG beer avaliable.
    In Clark and Cowlitz counties down south, Maletis Beverage has been distrubiting FG for almost a year now.

    And, yes the Roses on Roses is a killer beer...I have seen it around Clark County this week for sale.

    We're not getting kegs, but I had a can of the Sunrise Oatmeal Pale Ale yesterday and it was damn tasty. I foresee more these being consumed this summer.

    I was wondering when they would get it. I was monitoring their website and hadn't noticed.

    Interesting. We've had cans down in Vancouver for a long time now...Fred Meyer, New Seasons, etc. You guys don't get it in the Seattle area?

    Fort George puts out great beers...Cavatica Stout is a fine line between stout and IS, Vortex IPA is great, Oatmeal Pale Ale is great too. Glad to see them here finally and always a great price point for a tall boy.

    All 4 available cans are in at Central Market MC. Still in the back room until I can make space on the shelf which should be very soon. Available upon request in the mean time, Deviant Dale's and Torpedo as well while on the subject of tall boys

    Hey Spence,
    Good to hear. Haven't asked about anything in the back lately.
    Vortex and Cavatica as good as it gets.
