Fort George Brewery Celebrates Its 10 Year Anniversary

Ten years ago Jack Harris and Chris Nemlowill found an abandoned building in the sleepy town of Astoria and decided to make this the home of their new brewery. Now, ten years later, Fort George Brewery + Public House has become a craft beer destination in this town that has transitioned from being a canning town to a popular tourist destination.
