imageIf you’re like us then you’ve been looking out for the latest seasonal or limited-edition, local, beer. Fort George, the largest brewery in Astoria, is releasing their next limited-edition collaboration, Next Adventure Black IPA.
Described by the brewery as a “blend of local craft beer and the unlimited possibilities of outdoor adventure”, Next Adventure is a collaboration with alt. outdoor store Next Adventure.
“We wanted to make a beer with all of the hop flavor and aromatics of an IPA, but with a rich, dark color and a bright white head,” explains Fort George co-owner Chris Nemlowill.  “If you close your eyes and drink this beer, you should feel like you’re tasting a hoppy IPA.”
“We were really flattered when Fort George approached us to do this collaboration,” said Bryan Knudsen, co-owner with Deek Heykamp of Next Adventure – Portland’s alternative outdoor store.  “Next Adventure is thrilled to be the namesake of Fort George’s latest creation.  Much like their focus on brewing quality beer, Next Adventure has been dedicated to providing quality gear at a great price since 1997.”
To celebrate the collaboration between an outdoor store and a brewery Fort George is asking for you in a video from the outdoors.
This contest seeks video submissions of no more than 30 seconds featuring our canned seasonal, Next Adventure Black IPA on your next outdoor adventure.  It is open only to individuals age 21 or older.  Videos must include a can of Fort George Next Adventure Black IPA.  Top three entrants will win prizes and their videos will be shown at the opening of the PDX Kayaker Film Festival.

About Fort George George Brewing
The Fort George Brewery & Public House was the original settlement site of Astoria founded in March 1811 by Captain Jonathan Thorn. In its heyday, Astoria was the Pacific Fur Company’s primary fur trading post in the Northwest. Under temporary British Authority, it was renamed Fort George after King George the Third. In 1924, the Fort George building was erected to house a Ford service station and remained an automotive repair facility until the late 1990’s. Briefly abandoned and sadly neglected, we have revitalized the Fort George building producing beer here on site.  We hope this brewery will respond and adjust to your thirsts, as we believe in beer that evolves depending on the palates of the people who drink it.  We strive to use the freshest most locally obtainable ingredients and our beers are never filtered, fined or clarified.  We the brewers aim to constantly raise our standards to make you the greatest pint of beer you’ve had today.
We aim to operate a public house that is open and welcoming to all that may gather together, enjoy fresh local food and beer served with enthusiasm and a commitment to quality.  We take three days off a year, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Labor Day, but otherwise we are open to serve. Please return often for great meals, outstanding beers and good company.
