Located in the historic Lovell Auto Co Building

In July 2023 Fort George unveiled a new space on the Fort George Block in Downtown Astoria dedicated to Merch and Beer To Go: LOVELL AUTO CO STORE – a renovated space adjacent to the Lovell Taproom which also houses a row of 200 blue steel combination lockers, each with a silver plaque bearing the name of a beloved member of Fort George’s Lovell Auto Co (our first and only bottle club started in 2021).

For the first 16 years of Fort George, the space adjacent to the Lovell Taproom was used mostly for storage. We called it The Blue Room, though it had not been primarily blue for a long time. From the massive old growth beams that form the ceiling, to the 18 foot tall bank of street-facing windows, the space was impressive, warm and full of light – even as a storage space. Prior to Fort George acquiring the building in 2009, the Blue Room was used primarily as offices for the auto service and repair shop. The space was filled with shelves and parts, a disused freight elevator at one end.

Fort George and Crockett Carpentry updated and repurposed the space originally built out by Blind Moses, adding new lighting, crisp new paint on the walls, and a row of beer coolers packed to the brim with all of Fort George’s latest releases, flagship favorites, exclusive bottles, collaboration projects and even a small stock of 1/6 barrel kegs for the discerning party host. Additionally, almost all of the materials used in the build-out of the new space are reclaimed and repurposed.

We are proud to be stewards of the historic Fort George buildings on Duane Street. We’re excited to welcome our community into another space on the block that we’ve respectfully filled with good beer and cool stuff. Lovell Auto Co: Merch & Beer To Go will let us send a little more Fort George home with all of our friends.
