FAQ

On The Block

 

Do you take reservations?

The Brewery + Public House is always busy with walk-in guests, so we do not take reservations. Please check-in with the hosts on busy days; they are happy to answer any questions you have about seating in the three spaces. You are welcome to grab a drink at any of the three bars on the block to enjoy while you wait for a table. If you do have a large party, calling ahead at (503) 325-7468 is appreciated. We’ll do our best to seat your group in a timely manner, or we’ll let you know what the wait time may be.

Are kids allowed?

Minors are allowed on the block until 10pm. We suggest any groups with minors arrive before 9pm for food service.

Are dogs allowed?

Service animals are welcome in all guest areas of the block, in accordance with the ADA. This law does not provide allowances for emotional support or therapy animals. Non-service animals are allowed only in the uncovered areas, like the Courtyard and Top Deck. They should be leashed and under control at all times. Non-service animals are not allowed inside the Fort George Building, the Lovell Building, or the covered Solarium due to Clatsop County health code regulations. You may tie your friendly furry family members up in the Courtyard while you dine, but please remember that you are responsible for them.

Are there vegan options? Gluten-free?

There are vegan options on the menu, and many items can be made vegetarian or vegan with a little ingenuity. Gluten-free buns and pizza dough are available upon request. Talk to your server about any dietary restrictions or allergies. **Warning: the kitchen is not certified gluten-free.**

We’d like to have a large private party at Fort George. Do you have an event space?

For large private parties, we offer the Lovell Showroom to rent. To ask about availability and pricing, send an email to events@fortgeorgebrewery.com. If your large party would rather meet in the Public House or Pizzeria, please email beer@fortgeorgebrewery.com or call the Pub at (503) 325-7468. We may be able to accommodate you.

You have three restaurants listed. Which one is Fort George?

Fort George Brewery is split into three restaurant spaces: the original Public House downstairs, the wood-fired Pizzeria upstairs, and the Lovell Taproom across the Courtyard in the Lovell Building. Each has its own food menu and tap list, and we encourage you to explore. You may order a beer in one space and take it to another. But please settle up your tab before leaving any bar space, and stay on the grounds with your open pints of beer.

Can I get a wood-fired pizza in the Lovell Taproom?

Unfortunately, to keep each of the three restaurant spaces moving efficiently, menu items are only served in their respective location. With three unique kitchens, there are a lot of choices. Your host or server is happy to talk to you about food options on the block.

Where can I park?

There is ample street parking all over Astoria, especially up the hill behind Fort George. Please be aware of the 2-hour limits in some areas. There are a few parking spots in the lot across from Fort George on Duane Street, which also has covered motorcycle and bicycle parking. The Courtyard is not open to customer parking, even for short term loading. Our brewers need this space for grain deliveries and beer loading.

Can I smoke in the Courtyard or on the Top Deck? In the Fort Garden?

The entire Fort George block is smoke-free (except during the Festival of Dark Arts). There is a covered smoking area across from the Pub on Duane Street.

Will you have (enter your sports teams here) on TV?

Fort George does have a television in each location on the block. Upon request we’ll show sporting events, chosen by bar consensus. Pub policy is to keep televisions muted.

Can we bring our own cake for our birthday party?

Yes. To help us out, please call ahead at (503) 325-7468 so we are best prepared to make your special day extra special.

Do you do brewery tours?

Brewery tours are scheduled every Saturday & Sunday at 1pm and 4pm. These are free of charge and typically last about 30 to 45 minutes. Meet your tour guide in the Lovell Brewery in front of the Big Red Pig. Tour beers are encouraged. If you have a special group or you are not able to be here on a weekend, tours may be arranged by emailing beer@fortgeorgebrewery.com.

The Beer

 

Where can I get Fort George beer?

Fort George beer is sold throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. You can look for Fort George beer near you with our beer finder at fortgeorgebrewery.com/beerfinder. Or come to Astoria. The pub has the best selection of Fort George draft, cans, and specialty bottles, many only found at the brewery.

Why can’t I get (insert Fort George beer) at my favorite bottle shop or tap house?

If that bottle shop or tap house is in Washington, Oregon, or Idaho, they should have access to Fort George year-round offerings through their local distributor. Ask your favorite establishment to order some Fort George beer. Some limited varieties or seasonals are not always available, and many small batches and bottles are only found at the brewery. If you have a question about a specific beer, message Fort George on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or send an email to beer@fortgeorgebrewery.com.

I live outside of the northwest. Can I order beer directly from you?

Due to shipping arrangements, a complex web of State laws, and cold-storage issues, Fort George does not ship beer directly to customers. But a trip to Astoria is definitely worth your while. Bring an extra suitcase.

Can I buy a keg from the brewery?

Yes. Make sure to plan ahead, as the brewery will need several days to ensure your keg is ready for pick-up. To send a request and for pricing, visit our keg sales page at fortgeorgebrewery.com/kegsales. Please note: not all varieties may be available for dock sales, but the brewery will get back to you with suggestions or alternatives.
