With this upcoming weekend’s 4th of July 3-Day 3-Way at Fort George Brewery in Astoria, the guest beers from the current and former 3-Way IPA brewery partners has been announced. The weekend event kicks off on Friday, July 3rd and continues through Sunday, July 5th. Should be a great weekend to head to Oregon’s North Coast to get a break from this extended heatwave facing those east of Oregon’s Coastal Range.
However, the highlight of the weekend will be on July 4th for Saturday’s featured courtyard event pouring beers from Fort George, Gigantic, Lompoc, Block 15, Boneyard, Georgetown and pFriem. There will also be some additional bonus beers from Breakside, Barley Brown’s, Buoy, and Melvin. Plus, to make this weekend even more enjoyable Fort George will tap freshly brewed batches of all three years of 3-Way IPA. This will be the first time one can have three different 3-Way IPAs all in one location. The small batch, draft only re-brews of 2013 and 2014 3-Way IPA are available only on the coast, and they will go quickly.
Here is the schedule of events for the three-day weekend from July 3 – 5.
Friday, July 3rd
Live music from 5pm to 10pm with The Sam Stoners, Michael Hurley, The Resolectrics, and the Quick and Easy Boys.
Buy your festival cup a day early in the Taproom – $10 for the cup and your first fill. Then prep your palate with a taster tray loaded with beers from previous 3-Way IPA collaborators.

The 3-Day 3-Way IPA party begins in the courtyard that will feature all three years of 3-Way IPA. Of course the first two years will be freshly brewed batches. To partake in the courtyard festivities a $10 festival cup is required to drink these offerings. Taps open at 2:00pm following The Star-Spangled Banner.
