PORTLAND, OR (JULY 18, 2023) – Zupan’s Markets has partnered with Astoria’s famed Fort George Brewery for the 25th beer in the local grocery store’s Farm-to-Market lineup. The summer IPA is slightly hazy and boasts a rich golden hue and a bright, refreshing crispness.
“Fort George is an iconic piece of Oregon’s brewing scene, and we’re so excited to partner with them and offer their delicious IPA as a summer special,” said Zupan’s Markets President and CEO Mike Zupan. “This golden, hazy ale is a lovely summer quencher, and pairs perfectly with a picnic lunch gathered from Zupan’s shelves and deli.”
Fort George’s Farm-To-Market India pale ale is exclusively available at all three Zupan’s Markets locations. The beer is sold in 16-ounce cans for $4.99 and as a 4-pack for $15.99, and will be available for a limited time only.
This Fort George India pale ale will also be available at a tap takeover on Wednesday, July 19th from 6 to 8 p.m. at Cascadia Heights taproom at 7329 SW Barnes Rd, Portland, OR, 97225.
“When we were dreaming up a recipe for Zupan’s Farm to Market Summer IPA, we dreamed of the perfect picnic basket full of ripe, soft fruit,” says the brewers of Fort George. “Tangerines, apricots, honeydew melons… luscious, verdant, and relaxing, and available on the shelves at Zupan’s!”
