Astoria Brewing Co.

   Astoria Brewing has long attracted throngs of visitors to its downtown brewpub off the Riverwalk, especially in summer when the view deck off 11th Street is almost always filled.

   Fort George is Astoria’s biggest craft brewery and one of the largest in the Pacific Northwest.
   Why is a resort hotel/golf course on our list? Because it’s owned by McMenamins Breweries and that means there’s plenty of thirst-quenching craft beer on tap.
   RJ Kiepke, the owner of Hondo’s, is Astoria’s dean of brewing. He’s been doing it longer than just about anyone else.
