Fort George Brewery

Located near the mouth of the Columbia River, Astoria, Oregon was once the lumber capital of the coast. Famous for its role in The Goonies, a film that came out the same year I did, Astoria has since fallen victim to misbehaving meth heads and an almost absent economy. But with the help of good beer and big burgers, that's bound to change.

We'd driven past the Fort George Brewery countless times on our way into Oregon. Saw their sign on the side of the road. Mentioned it to one another. Never stopped. Then Todd took a tall can out of his truck. It was Fort George's 1811 Lager, a bold beer "concocted from two row malted barley and cracked maize." And it was delicious. So on Sunday, with wind from the west, we decided to stop in Astoria for some lunch and a lager.

The Fort George Brewery is located on the corner of 15th and Duane Street.

Karissa can't wait for lunch and lager!

The brewery is in the back.

Not a bad bar.

Drinking Divinity.

Lunch, no brunch.
