Odd Astoria

A whiskey sour is as classic a drink as the historic Odd Fellows Building in downtown Astoria, that our friends are attempting to restore. This cocktail-inspired beer has an assertively tart lemon profile up front that balances with the whiskey and oak character. With a light touch of cherry, just a little garnish to round out the flavor, this beer is fruity, refreshing, and gets you in the mood for some historic building restoration.
