Fort George Brewery and Tender Loving Empire present, for a limited time only, Tender Loving Empire Northwest Pale Ale (NWPA) and to celebrate, the release of Typhoon “Sea Shanty II”. Tender Loving Empire NWPA glows with a tangerine hue, emanating harmonies of citrus and notes of pine. Open a can, kick back and enjoy the spirit, flavor and sound of the Northwest.
Tender Loving Empire, our collaborator, synchronizes a well-known record label* with a silk-screening studio and a handmade craft and music store in downtown Portland. Typhoon “Sea Shanty II”, filmed in Portland along the Willamette River, will be followed by three more video releases, each featuring a Tender Loving Empire band and filmed along the watershed from the Willamette River to Columbia River in Astoria and in Fort George Brewery itself.
We will soon announce details about release parties in Astoria and Portland, which will culminate at Bunk Bar on May 4th. Fort George Tender Loving Empire NWPA will be available wherever fine beers are sold and in select bars around Astoria, Portland and Seattle starting immediately.
In Astoria and the surrounding coastal communities of Northern Oregon and Southern Washington we see plenty of stormy days, but there is nothing like coming in from the elements to a savory hot meal and a tasty cold beer. Nothing, that is, except for a meal cooked with Fort George beer. Check out some of these great local spots where you’ll find Fort George beer on tap and on the dinner menu. Delicious!
