Just six years ago, Fort George Brewery was a shattered, rusting shell of a former auto-body shop near where John Jacob Astor's Pacific Fur Company first set up shop in the early 1800s. This year, it opened the second floor of its brewpub as 16-ounce tallboy cans of its Vortex IPA, Quick Wit, Calvatica Stout, 1811 Lager and Sunrise OPA proliferate throughout the Pacific Northwest. It's a small footprint, but teaming with Portland's Gigantic and Lompoc Breweries on 3-Way IPA and Portland-based record label Tender Loving Empire on its NWPA have helped deepen that print a bit.
