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.

I was expecting mucho bourbon and ended up with a really bright and citrusy Belgian IPA with a big hit of rosehips instead. Once I got over that, I really enjoyed this and I was glad I opened it instead of cellaring.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy amber with a good creamy near-white head. Nose is all hop. What kind of hop? Floral, resin and citrus? Med body. Flavor is mildly roast caramel. But then there’s a lot of Belgian yeast/spice. Makes the hop seem very floral. The spice is significant. The hop is very significant. A bit peppery - Grains of Paradise? Finish is seductively Belgian. It’s fresh! Lush! Brilliant!

Nose of citrus caramel bourbon belgian yeast and wood. Nice mix of aromas. Pours hazy amber thin bubbly but creamy looking head. Flavors start with wood and light bourbon move into citrus and floral hops caramel earth, light sugar and bourbon essence. Nice bodied beer, good carbonation. Good.

BK7 (773) - Turner, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Bomber. A unique India Pale Ale. Citrus and caramel but also other sweet and fruity flavors. Can definitively pick up on the bourbon barrel aging and the Belgian yeast. Not sure what rose hips should taste like but there are many flavors mixed in that I can not identify but very much enjoy. Finishes with a nice bitterness that is not quite typical of an IPA. Nice Brew. Tasty.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - MAY 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2012 Beautiful cloudy bronze, sandstone head, filigree lace. Coconut, pineapple, dark honey, pretty floral accents, and exquisite barrel notes. A very subtle fruit tartness balances out the rich malt. Medium full body, spot-on carb, and a very well-balanced floral-hoppiness in the mildly sweet finish. Had no expectations for this one. Higher abv than I typically prefer, but it is well hidden. This is just working for me this evening, and I enjoyed it immensely. Miles away from your typical iipa. This one drinks more like a wonderful fireside sipper. Lovely label artwork is worth a mention. ***Finished my bomber the next evening ... this was ridiculously delicious to me ... no apologies ... re-scored***

marcus (9148) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Bottle shared by haggerty. Pours cloudy amber with an attractive beige head and a fruity citrus aroma. There is a fairly well-balanced caramel malt flavor with a nice yeast presence and a first-rate hop profile.

mcberko (14406) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a murky, opaque dark orangey amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is extremely fruity, slight yeast, some barnyard and barrels. Flavour is very fruity, with loads of grapefruit, pineapple and mangos, some funk and hay, oak chips and lots of caramel malt. Pungent flavours - very well-balanced. Quite enjoyable.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle... Poured amber/orange with a white head. Interesting beer. Fizzy, mouthfeel, well carbed. Bitter and hoppy with barrel characters and oak, vanilla, herbal, earthy, leafy, and wood tones. Some sweetness and definite alcohol presence.
