Fort George Brewery in Astoria, Oregon

The hubby and I broke away from the kiddos for a date afternoon and drove to scenic Astoria, Oregon on the coast, to take in a flick and check out the Fort George Brewery.

We saw Avatar and immensely enjoyed ourselves (planning to check it out in 3-D). Then we slogged through the rain and found Fort George in Duane street and darted inside to find a nice cozy, pub setting.

The menu had a healthy mixture of local fair and pub favorites. The beverage selections were quite to my husband's liking. I choose a Blackthorn Hard Cider, which was very smooth, an import from England. Hubby had a Nut Red, which he quite enjoyed.

If you haven't spend much time along the Oregon Coast, give Astoria consideration next time you feel the need for salty air. Astoria boasts a fine collection of Victorian era homes, a fine pier to watch the mighty Columbia River push it's way into the Pacific Ocean, and of course, fine brew pubs such as Fort Gorge to quench your thirst.

To learn more about Fort George check out their website or blog.
