Stopped by this last 4th of July weekend.
A: It was mid day sunday, and this place was PACKED!! It was the 4th of july weekend, so it was to be expected. The place was filled with tourist and locals alike all havng a great time with friends and family enjoying the food and great beer. The place has a very "homey" feel to it, I could see myself in here during the nasty winter weather months.
Q: Everyone of their beers was very unique in their own special way. The spruce ale was very interesting. Their IIPA (16th Chapel?) is to DIE for as well as the Vortex IPA. Also their oatmeal pale ale is very good as well. Everything is worth trying.
S: The service was great (even when it was crazy busy) but I docked them for one reason: They need to know their beer. I asked for some general information on one of their beers and one of the guys behind the bar of all places try to spit some BS answer up. He clearly didn't know what he was talking about and it made him look stupid. Other then that, everything was great.
S: Amazing. They have a huge selection of their beers from their regular beers to their seasonals all lined up on a huge chalk board up above the bar. They even have some guest taps that are always worth checking out as well.
(*hint* get the taster tray, you wont be disappointed).
F: We didn't have much of their food (we were more interested in the beer), but from what we had it was excellent.
V: Typical bar brewery price, nothing really shocking here. Growlers where only $11 for a fill.
Fort George is an excellent place to check out if you are in the area. They have awesome beer and awesome ways for taking it to go. (They have bad ass swing top growlers as well as various sizes of mason jars).

I really like this place and we got there whenever we're in Astoria. Old building with historical value which is neat. They've added a outdoor patio since we were there last. The inside is a little worn looking and could use a little TLC. Food is good but not great. Pizza is served upstairs only so we've never tried it. If your in Astoria I think it's worth a visit. Beer is good.

Astoria was one of our destinations on a Pacific Northwest trip and Fort George was one place I wanted to go. It did not disappoint. They had about a dozen of their beers on tap with two guest beers. They covered many beer styles from lager to ipa to wit to stout. Easily something for everyone. We did the sampler tray and glasses of the Beta 2.3 IPA and Truffle Shuffle Stout (Astoria is home to the house from the Goonies). Each beer was solid to outstanding. All pints were $4.50 which was reasonable for the quality of what was being served.
Service was terrific. Explaining each of the beers in depth on the sampler tray, checking on us several times, etc. For food, we had the house made sausage sampler which was very good. We got a couple of four packs of the Vortex IPA which was my favorite beer and a four pack of the whiskey rye aged Cavatica Stout. Just a great experience overall. These are top notch brews in a fun place.

I really enjoyed my visit here. I went on a Sunday afternoon with my wife, my 1 year old and my sister. it was fairly crowded but we were seated quickly and had great service. The waitress was knowledgeable of the food and beer.
I got the house made French Garlic Sausage which was quite good. The menu had a nice variety of food options.
Their tap selections featured their standard, canned line-up as well as a couple of draft only options. They also had their canned beers available for purchase to go, as well as growler fills.
I was also happy with their website as it has their menu and current tap list, which is really nice.
I would love to visit this place again. Family friendly, good service and good food and drinks all for a reasonable price.

I had the opportunity to visit the Fort George pub in Astoria yesterday and I was very impressed. This place definitely warrants a stop if you are going through Astoria, and the right-minded person might even make a special trip just to go there. I know I will definitely be going back.
When I went in, the place was almost entirely full for the lunch rush, but I got prompt and friendly service immediately. All the staff have a good understanding of the brews and the guy who helped me gave me a knowledgeable run-down of their seasonals and made recommendations. Every other staff member was top-notch as well.
There were on the order of 12 or so available beers, a couple of which I sampled. As has been my experience with their packaged beers, the draft brews were all extremely good. I did not go for their tasting flight, but according to the menu you get a 3oz taster of *everything* they have, including special brews and seasonals. If there is a tap handle for it, you are getting it -- I love this idea.
I had lunch as well, which was quite good, although the highlight here is really the beer. Prices were reasonable; doubly-so for me since I'm so accustomed to paying sales tax. Go Oregon!

My parents live in Astoria, so I make sure to stop by here every time I am in town. The atmosphere is top-notch, they have done a great job restoring the old warehouse into a fun, and quirky place to be. The main pub has great big wooden tables and exposed beams which look great. You can also see part of the brewing operations through a glass window (always a plus to see where the beer you are drinking comes from). The food is excellent, with lots of locally sourced ingredients used. The beer is great, with many different styles covered. My favorite is the Vortex IPA. Some of their seasonals are also very good (Coffee Girl Stout, Spruce Bud Ale).
They have recently expanded their operations, to include a separate building where they do most of their brewing and also canning. This building has a smaller taproom which is fun to visit. They usually have beers on tap out here that are not available in the main pub, generally something barrel aged.
I definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Oregon's north coast.

We made a trip up to Astoria from Eugene, just to check out the town. We stumbled across Fort George from a sign on the road. I figured we had to check it out.
When you walk in there are several tables with plenty of people sitting at them, as well as a back porch with several more tables. We sat inside on this rather hot day.
For some reason we had several people come to the table. One for our beer order, one for our food order, one to give us our beer, and one to deliver the food. I wasn't sure who would get our tip.
They had around 10-12 beers on tap. I tried the Oatmeal Pale, while my friend had the Porter. I also had an Albacore tuna sandwich, but it wasn't a tuna fish sandwich like I was expecting. It was rather dry, and not very good. The hummus we had was pretty sub-standard as well. It looks like they just scooped out some store bought hummus.
The prices were pretty reasonable. I think our total bill was around $30, which is what I was expecting to pay anyways. We did grab a couple of the 1811 Lager cans to go, and sat by the beach and watched the sunset.
Check it out if you go to Astoria and want a quick bite and a beer.
