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.

An IPA Odyssey: Summer 2014

written by Nathan on May 23rd, 2014

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.

Here’s a full list of tour dates:

JUNE 4 • PORKY’S • LONGVIEW, WA • 5PM-8PM
JUNE 12 • TAP & GROWLER • EUGENE, OR • 5PM-9PM
JUNE 12 • BY THE BOTTLE • VANCOUVER, WA • 6PM-9PM
JUNE 13 • HORSE BRASS PUB • PORTLAND, OR • 5PM-9PM

JUNE 13 • JACKSON CREEK PIZZA • MEDFORD, OR • 7:30PM-9:30PM
JUNE 14 • PINE BOX • SEATTLE, WA – 4PM-7PM (TRICYCLE RACES)
JUNE 17 • BITTERCREEK ALEHOUSE • BOISE, ID • 4PM-9PM
JUNE 18 • PARKWAY TAVERN • TACOMA, WA • 4PM-CLOSE
JUNE 20 • LES CAVES BIER & KITCHEN • CORVALLIS, OR – 4PM-7PM
JUNE 21 • BROKEN TOP BOTTLE SHOP • BEND, OR – 5PM-8PM
JUNE 21 • LANTERN TAP HOUSE • SPOKANE, WA – 4PM-CLOSE

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.

Fort George Turns 7

From 2007 to 2014, Fort George has come a long way.  We welcome everyone to join us at the Public House this Sunday, March 9th and celebrate the 7th Anniversary of Fort George Brewery.  The party starts at 3pm with house-favorites The Quick and Easy Boys making their upstairs debut.  This Portland power-trio creates their own blend of rock & roll.  Imagine the Minutemen, Band of Gypsies, and the Police rolled into one.  The party continues at 8pm with Fort George’s Sunday Night Concert Series featuring the high-energy delta-bluesy sounds of Tango Alpha Tango.  These Northwest natives will reel you in with memorable melodies and catchy guitar hooks peppered with funky bass-lines, driving beats, and psychedelic keys.

And what do you get a brewery for its birthday?  OMEGATEX!  This limited run, 7th anniversary beer will be released for the first time in 22-oz bottles.  Try it on tap or take a case home – it’s like Vortex only BIGGER….

Bring your dancing shoes, some good spirits, and a thirst for Astoria craft beer.  The party starts at 3pm.  Doors to the Public House open at noon.  Expect prize giveaways, music, great beer and food.  But most of all, this day is a big thank you to the community and Northwest craft beer lovers who made it all possible.  Cheers!
