Fort George Brewery

On our way back to Portland, the day before our flight home, we decided to take the round about way and squeeze in one more brewery!
We drove up the coast to Astoria, where the movie The Goonies was filmed, and found Fort George Brewery.

The location was cool, they owned the whole block. The brewery was divided into three or so sections and they all offered different beers on draught.
So we started at what seemed to be the main indoor bar and got tasters.

After hearing about the layout, we found another bar, with different beers and of course I got another round of samples.

This brewery was awesome, they had a huge number of vastly different beers available on draught.
Really cool set up too. Worth going to if you are ever find yourself Astoria.

Detoxing at Cannon Beach

We’d been moving at a pretty hectic pace, so it was amazing to slow down a little and chill at the beach for a few days.
Of course we didn’t go completely beer free. Before we left Portland I stopped at a bottle shop and picked up a few beers from breweries in Bend since we wouldn’t be making it out that way.

So worth it.

Heading to Portland

The next day we took the train down to Portland. Once we got picked up by Jack’s friend Katie, we went straight to Cascade Barrel House.

Good thing they were sample sizes, I wanted to try everything! And very nearly did! I didn’t have a dud, and would totally recommend!

Later that night, I had a beer with dinner.

The next day, we hooked around Mt Saint Helens.

Great views. But almost no shade, wear sunscreen!
