Fort George Brewery is located in Astoria, Oregon, United States, and produces over 40 varieties of beer distributed throughout Oregon, Washington and parts of Idaho. It is the 15th largest brewery in the state of Oregon[1] and among the fastest growing breweries in the U.S.[2]

History[edit]

Fort George Brewery and Public House was opened in March of 2007 on the site of the first American settlement on the U.S. west coast, Fort Astoria (also known as Fort George). The brewery, which originally opened in the Fort George Building with 8.5 barrel fermentation and conditioning tanks, expanded into the neighboring Lovell Building in 2010 with the addition of a 30 barrel system, a canning line and the opening of the Lovell Taproom.[3] In 2011, Fort George Brewery began distributing cans of their Vortex IPA, 1811 Lager, and Cavatica Stout in Oregon and Southwest Washington. By the summer of 2012, they added Quick Wit and Sunrise Oatmeal Pale Ale to their canned line-up. In 2013, the brewery released their first canned seasonal beer, Tender Loving Empire North West Pale Ale (NWPA).
