SEASON FOR FRIENDSHIP

It’s a magical time of year on the North Coast. Astorians are rolling out their barbecues, pulling on their warmer weather hoodies, and getting together with friends to collaborate on fresh summer seasonals. 3-Way IPA is on the way, this year with our good buddies from Cloudburst and Ruse. And to really mark the occasion with maximum friendship, we’re inviting all of our 3-Way IPA friends together in a celebration of Lupulin Ecstasy.

 

Tickets to Lupulin Ecstasy are on sale now. Your purchase grants you admission to Lupulin Ecstasy attractions & live performances, a festival glass & eight tasting tickets, access to fest beers sprinkled around the grounds, and entry into the Captain George Flavel Mansion for the day. Plus, don’t forget those tacos.

 

MANSION GROUNDS

The Flavel Museum is a classic Queen Anne style home, sitting in downtown Astoria at the foot of 8th Street. Constructed in 1885 by Captain George Flavel, a river pilot and Astoria’s first millionaire, the house and grounds are now owned and operated by the Clatsop County Historical Society. George was a great supporter of Astoria and lavish parties, much like Fort George.

 

THE CAUSE

A portion of the ticket price will go to the Clatsop County Historical Society, supporting the Uppertown Firefighter’s Museum, the Heritage Museum, and the Flavel House. More information can be found at www.cumtux.org.

    Dear Fort George: Please get your beer to market, especially Vortex, in less than 3 weeks.
    Once it hits about 23 days, it starts deteriorating into sh**….with floaties appearing, and growing bigger, every day afterwards.
    From Astoria to Portland is a couple hours drive…if you can’t get your distributor to speed it up to less than 3 weeks, drop them and self-distribute.

    Meanwhile, best forget about new beer releases…the mismanagement of your cash cow is quietly killing you.
