Fort George opened its doors to Astoria as both a brewery and a public house, and that desire to serve the community continues to this day. The brewers and pub staff here share a common goal, to create a welcoming space where anyone in town can pull up a stool and enjoy a pint and a bite to eat. We take pride in our house-made offerings and our hospitality, and we’re always looking for improvements that bring us one step closer to perfection. It’s a goal Sisyphus could appreciate, even if he doesn’t have as much fun pushing that rock as we do rolling those kegs. And that’s why we like to call Fort George beer the best beer you’ve had today. Tomorrow it will only be better.
Spruce Budd – ABV: 5.5%
Light & Sprucy – With the help of all of the Fort George brewers, we picked hundreds of pounds of spruce tips, leaving our arms aching from the constant stabbing of the needles. Through all of that pain came a beer that cannot be rivaled in deliciousness. With nothing more than organic pilsner malt and hand-harvested spruce tips for ingredients, this beer might be the best thing you have ever put in your mouth. Hints of spruce, citrus, and more spruce – each glorious sip tastes like an adventure in the woods.
Matryoshka – ABV 12.75%
Matryoshka aged for a year in Kentucky bourbon barrels, stacking layers upon layers of elegant complexity. This Russian Imperial Stout builds with a graceful and delicate intensity, strong enough for the Siberian winter. Matryoshka is the Russian name for nesting dolls. And much like those wooden dolls, the Matryoshka series releases in many variations, each one more intricate than the last.
