Get your costume on, then get your dance on. Halloween night at Fort George Brewery means live music, costume contests, and plenty of killer beers spread throughout the block.
Upstairs at the Fort George Brewery + Public House
The Upstairs hosts a 21+ only event, with live music featuring the resurrection of local reggae favorite Ma Barley at 8pm, and the dynamic sounds of Los Estupidos at 9:45pm. The costume contest, with an eclectic mix of winners, commences at 9:30pm. The Los Estupidos DJs will emcee your entire night. Arrive early, as maximum occupancy will be reached. Wristbands are required at the entrance – Never a cover.
Lovell Building Taproom
Take in the classical and contemporary sounds of String Goretet as you enjoy your pint by the fire. Live performances start at 7pm and 9pm. The Taproom boasts the largest collection of Fort George specialty beers in one location. And as a bonus, on Halloween night look for casks of Squash Buckler pumpkin ale. All ages are welcome until 10pm. As always, never a cover

Looking for a break from the Halloween madness? The Downstairs pub is open regular hours and ready to serve. The spiral staircases switch to one-way only starting at 8pm Halloween night. All ages are always welcome until 10pm.

Brace yourself for a whole weekend of music and classic american pastimes at the brewery. The parking lot will be home to brat burgers, yard games, and cans of beer.
From 6-10PM each night, you’ll find music in the upstairs pub. The Quick & Easy Boys will be there every night with a different band to keep things fresh.
July 4th – Otis Heat, Quick & Easy Boys
July 5th – Michael Hurley, Quick & Easy Boys

You can find bonus details in the event flyer. The Taproom and Upstairs will open early on Friday. Of course, the upstairs will be a great location to check out the fireworks. The upstairs will remain open to kids after 10pm on 4th of July, to watch the fireworks. There will be 3-Way IPA on tap in all locations.

The return of 3-Way IPA is here. This year’s 3-way IPA was brewed in collaboration with Block 15 and Boneyard. We take 3-Way IPA very seriously – this isn’t just a one-off. The recipe meetings and test batches were elaborate to say the least. All to make this year’s 3-Way even better than the last. And now it is finally here.
To celebrate Fort George’s summer 2014 IPA Odyssey tap takeovers will be coming to a location near you – that is, if you are in the Northwest. The events are designed to be bitter havens filled with unapologetically hoppy offerings.

At Fort George there’s room for more than just one new beer this summer. We’ve decided to bring an all-the-time IPA and we’re calling it The Optimist – a lively IPA with robust citrus and an upbeat attitude.
We didn’t want The Optimist to feel alone in 12oz can 6-packs, so we’ve partnered it up with Quick Wit. They will both be making appearances around the Northwest. Though, Quick Wit will have to stay the hell away from the IPA events of the summer.
