About/History

HISTORY

The Fort George Brewery & Public House was the original settlement site of Astoria founded in March 1811 by Captain Jonathan Thorn. In its heyday, Astoria was the Pacific Fur Company’s primary fur trading post in the Northwest. Under temporary British Authority, it was renamed Fort George after King George the Third. In 1924, the Fort George building was erected to house an automotive service station and remained a repair facility until the late 1990’s. Briefly abandoned and sadly neglected, we have revitalized the Fort George building producing beer here on site.  We hope this brewery will respond and adjust to your thirsts, as we believe in beer that evolves depending on the palates of the people who drink it.  We strive to use the freshest most locally obtainable ingredients and our beers are never filtered, fined or clarified.  We the brewers aim to constantly raise our standards to make you the greatest pint of beer you’ve had today.

Our Goal

We aim to operate a public house that is open and welcoming to all that may gather together, enjoy fresh local food and beer served with enthusiasm and a commitment to quality.  We take three days off a year, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Labor Day, but otherwise we are open to serve. Please return often for great meals, outstanding beers and good company.
