Sitting on the south side of the famous Astoria-Megler Bridge, Astoria welcomes thousands of travelers from Washington into Oregon every day. It’s a gateway to the Oregon coastline for many. It also is a fun place to explore and spend some time in too.
Before settling in for a night in Astoria, we were looking for a fun place to go out and eat. A place that appeared to show off part of the city’s identity.
The place we stumbled upon, quite literally, had the appearance of a nostalgic building. Our choice for dinner and a drink that night was Fort George Brewery + Public House. Walking inside the Fort George building was a very welcoming experience, both when looking at the decor and atmosphere, as well as from the impression of the staff.
I had the Chile Verde Burrito which was simply awesome. I had been torn on what to order, because the selection of sausages looked really impressive. I was save though because also at our table was someone who ordered the French Garlic Sausage. I was able to sneak a taste and that would’ve been a great choice too.
The beer selection there was top notch too with a selection that included all kinds of options from around the Pacific Northwest. It was nice seeing so much shelf and tap space dedicated to displaying these well crafted local products.
The Fort George Brewery + Public House was one of the highlights of our short stay in Astoria. Well, that and that cool bridge. I had to drive across the Astoria-Megler Bridge an extra time the next day before continuing south.
