COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Five years ago we opened a little brewpub in the downstairs corner of The Fort George Building in Historic Downtown Astoria. Today we take up nearly and entire city-block: , three buildings, two breweries, two bars, an event space, and a canning line with all run by almost 50 hard-working employees.

With a beer in the plans for almost as long as we’ve been operational, this is our expression of what a brewery can accomplish in five short but intense years.

May we still be pleasing your palate in another five.

KajII (767) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2012
22oz Bottle.The pour was a medium brown with a nice orange hue and a large (2-3 finger) cream colored rocky head that receded very slowly, down to a large thick cap with excellent sheets of sticky lacing. The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, floral hops and a mild funky Belgian yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit), a mild fruity ester (apple and pineapple), a hint of cask and a moderate bourbon scent. The taste was bitter sweet and a tad yeasty, with a hint of caramel and a slight fruitiness right off, and then became a bit hoppy with a somewhat bold citrus peel bitterness along with a lightly sweet woody alcohol presence at the end. The flavor lingered for quite a long time proceeding the swallow, with a slight citrus peel bite hitting you right in the back of the throat. Mouthfeel was just below medium in body and dry it texture with a moderate carbonation. Overall this brew possessed a good hoppy bitterness that was offset rather nicely by a mild fruity presence, which created a beer that was very easy to drink and left a pleasing aftertaste on the taste buds...

toffsbury (114) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
Bomber bottle, a gift from my lovely girlfriend. Cloudy pale brown, with a big retentive head. Aroma is candy, with a bit of vegetable. Hard to smell it through the head... Happily, I poured it into two glasses. Flavour is a mix of up-front bitterness and sweet malt, with a lot of bourbon. Hard to find the rose hips, but they are hidden back there. Belgian-type bitterness sits on your tonge at the finish, then a faint hint of bourbon lingers on. There’s definitely a boozy bite to it. Quite nice.
