We’re excited to welcome beer fans to Astoria Beer Zone, a blog focused on the North Coast’s vibrant craft beer scene. Expect a mix of fun stories and useful info about brews made here, and the people who make them.

   We’ll be kicking things off with a revealing Q/A with Obelisk Beer Co. brewer and co-owner Dave Coyne. Going out on his own after nine years at Fort George, Dave is definitely setting the bar pretty high.

   Follow us for original content you can’t find anywhere else, including descriptions of special beers being released by our awesome breweries. 

   If you’d like to help support this mission by becoming a sponsor, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
