Press Release

Journey to a mystical realm, where the skies are filled with wonder and fields burst in a glorious green. Tour the grand history of Astoria as you wander the halls of the Flavel Mansion. Expand your hop-perception sipping lupulin delights in the Flavel Garden, with an assortment of fanciful creations from all of the 3-Way IPA collaboration breweries throughout the years. Then, explore the grounds to discover a carefully curated collection of live music, special attractions, and street tacos. Fort George cordially invites you to a festival of Lupulin Ecstasy.

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.

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.

Holiday Beer Extravaganza at Lompoc Brewing Sidebar

Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore. … Lompoc Brewing will release eight holiday beers on draft this season. The beers will be available at a release party on Monday, Nov. 26 from 4pm to 11pm at Lompoc Sidebar, 3901 N Williams Ave. The beers will go on tap at Oaks Bottom and 5th Quadrant on Tuesday, Nov. 27. One of the beers, C-Sons Greetings, will also be released in 22-oz. bottles, which will be available at the release party.

Blitzen: A bright, straw-colored holiday favorite, this golden ale is dry hopped with Centennial hops, orange peel, coriander, and cinnamon. The hops and orange peel combine for a citrusy aroma and flavor with a slight spice finish. Something tells us Rudolph won’t be your favorite reindeer anymore! 4.6% ABV

Smoking Bishop Helles: Let us take you on a holiday journey with this German-style lager that was brewed with smoked malts from Weyerman Malting. With an aroma that will remind you of cozying up to the fire, this golden lager has a crisp and dry finish. 5.1% ABV

Red Ryeder IRA: This India red ale is a collaboration with Nomcraft Brewing out of Aridagawa, Japan. Crimson in color with a citrus and spice profile, it’s everything you’ll want on your Christmas list...just be careful not to shoot your eye out! 6.7% ABV

C-sons Greetings Imperial IPA: A deep copper colored ale brewed and dry-hopped with all seven "C" hops for a piney, citrusy, floral and resinous aroma. C-sons Greetings offers a full hop flavor with a rich caramel malt finish and an endless developing hop presence. 8% ABV

2016 Old Tavern Rat: A dark amber colored barley wine that was aged for two years prior to its release, this barley wine features a strong bitterness that is balanced with the sweetness of caramel and toffee flavors. 9.4% ABV

2016 Rye Barrel Aged Belsnickel: Whether you’ve been impish or admirable, a visit from Belsnickel is a critical part of Christmas. This robust American porter was aged in Heaven Hill Distillery rye whiskey barrels for two years. Hints of oak, chocolate, tobacco, and roasted malts permeate the palate. 6.2% ABV

2017 Franc'ly Brewdolph: This Belgian-style red ale was aged in Maryhill Winery Cabernet Franc barrels for 11 months. It has an oaky aroma with a mild fruitiness, finishing with a spicy clove flavor. Sure to go down in history. 7.7% ABV
 
2017 St. Nick’s Nightcap: This Bier de Garde is a malt-forward French style pale ale that was aged for 17 months in Maryhill Winery Cabernet Sauvignon barrels. Reddish-bronze in color with a toasted oak aroma, it has a malty sweetness with flavors of rhubarb and tart cherry. 7.2% ABV
