Back in 2015 Fort George Brewery hosted a 3-Day 3-Way Weekend over Independence Day Weekend. Now four years later, the Astoria brewer will once again host a festival that features its popular summer beer release 3-Way IPA.
Seven years of 3-Way IPA from Fort George Brewery will come together for Lupulin Ecstasy, a one-day event over Memorial Day Weekend that marks the release of the 2019 edition of 3-Way IPA on Saturday, May 25, 2019. This daylong festival will be held at the Flavel Mansion in downtown Astoria from Noon-6:00pm.
For this year’s 3-Way IPA, Fort George collaborates with Ruse Brewing from Portland and Cloudburst Brewing from Seattle. In addition to this beer pouring during Lupulin Ecstasy, Fort George will bring back many of the breweries that have been part of its 3-Way IPA over its previous six years.
Special selections will be pouring from Gigantic, Lompoc, Block 15, Boneyard, Georgetown, pFriem, Melvin, Barley Brown’s, Reuben’s Brews, Great Notion, Holy Mountain, Modern Times, Ruse, Cloudburst, and Fort George. And of course the 2019 3-Way IPA will make its debut for the summer at Lupulin Ecstasy.
The Flavel Museum is a classic Queen Anne style home, sitting in downtown Astoria at the foot of 8th Street. Constructed in 1885 by Captain George Flavel, a river pilot and Astoria’s first millionaire, the house and grounds are now owned and operated by the Clatsop County Historical Society. George was a great supporter of Astoria and lavish parties, much like Fort George.
