Fort George Brewery continues their series of unusual and creative magazine and music collaborations with Overdub IPA: a new Session seasonal beer in 16oz cans.
the sound of Overdub IPA
A good beer is like a good sound recording, balanced and pristine. Soft and subdued when it needs to be – In your face and crankin’ when it must. Done right, there’s nothing better than critical listening with a cold pint in your hand. Fort George invites you to put on your headphones and sample a can of Overdub IPA, their newest 16-oz collaboration with Tape Op, the creative music recording magazine. Pouring a solid gold with a crisp white head, Overdub IPA is a sensory overload of mango and papaya hop aromas, dank grapefruit tones, and mellow citrus finishing notes. This session-style IPA turns down the ABV, and engages the lupulin intensity toggle switch.
Join Fort George and Tape Op Saturday, April 18th at Bottles in Portland for the first chance at an Overdub IPA. Larry Crane of Tape Op and the folks from Fort George will be there with plenty of Overdub IPA, as well as some other Fort George favorites.
Then get yourself to the Columbian Theater in historic downtown Astoria on Saturday, April 25th for a full show of authentic Portland rock and roll. Tape Op and Fort George collide for a night of live music featuring:
Sun Angle – Portland trio known for their irreverent, expressive, spontaneous live shows – full of aggressive elation and gritty, raucous, surreal layers of sound.
The Minders – Formed in Denver, Colorado by Martyn Leaper and Robert Schneider (Apples in Stereo) – these rockers promise a bold, lush statement laden with hooks.
Summer Cannibals – A punk-flecked four-piece from Portland – centered around guitarist/vocalist Jessica Boudreaux and guitarist Marc Swart in 2012, their sound and full-volume fervor flows most fluidly during Summer Cannibals’ head-turning live shows.
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks – consisting of Mike Clark, Joanna Bolme, Jake Morris, and Stephen Malkmus (the main singer and songwriter behind the influential 1990s indie rock band Pavement) – bringing their punk-like-a-skunk sounds to Astoria.

about Tape Op
Tape Op began in 1996 by a then-novice recording engineer named Larry Crane. The first print run was about 500 Xeroxed copies, which Larry distributed among his friends. Between digital and print, Tape Op now sends out close to 70,000 magazines to a diverse worldwide audience, from home recordists to working professionals and everything in-between.
Tape Op is about learning how to make great recordings with whatever tools you have access to. It’s about education and creativity. Unlike most recording magazines, the primary focus is not reviewing equipment, but a discussion about making art. If you’re serious about sound, go to www.tapeop.com.
