Fort George Brewery is one of Astoria’s most popular craft breweries for good reason. Since establishing in 2007, Fort George has expanded from a single brewpub to an entire block filled with a brewpub, taproom, beer garden, and music venue.
The spacious brewpub sits in a unique location, on the original settlement site of Fort Astoria founded in 1811. According to the brewery,
“The oldest US settlement west of the Rockies, Fort Astoria was the Pacific Fur Company’s primary trading post in the Northwest. Under temporary British authority during the War of 1812, it was renamed “Fort George” after King George III. In 1924, the current Fort George Building was erected to house an automotive repair shop. Abandoned and neglected in the early 90s, the Fort George Building was revitalized in 2007 as a home to Blue Scorcher Bakery and the original brewpub. Fort George purchased the neighboring Lovell Building in 2010, which now houses the Lovell Taproom and a larger brew system. An upstairs pizzeria was added to the Fort George Building in 2013.”
Fort George Brewery only sells and distributes their original beers in the Pacific Northwest; their original beers can be tasted on-tap right here in Astoria. Try their hoppy Vortex IPA, brewed year-round, or perhaps one of their seasonal offerings available for a limited time.
Of course, good beer pairs with great food, and that’s just what Fort George Brewery combines. Their pub menu includes everything from soups and salads to burgers, tacos, and wood-fired pizzas.
Unfortunately, due to the current situation, their downstairs pub is closed for dine-in. They are currently only serving to-go orders at the courtyard and limiting their upstairs pizza room for dine-in by reservation only. Their craft beer is available in bottles, cans, and kegs to-go as well as wine and cider.
You can learn more on their website at FortGeorgeBrewery.com. Be sure to swing by and visit their brewpub at 1483 Duane Street Astoria, OR 97103. Dine-in and to-go orders are available 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
