Fort George Brewery, Stout Month & surviving the perils of winter



Fort George Brewery announces schedule for Stout Month, starting Feb. 1st.

Occasionally, very occasionally, I come across a beer that makes me step back and say, “Dang! That’s one of the best beers I’ve ever had!” One such beer earning this highest, entirely subjective, and very rare distinction is a particular version of Matryoshka Imperial Stout that I tasted a few years ago. This is my long-winded way of saying something many of you already know: Fort George Brewery makes some truly exceptional stouts.

The Festival of the Dark Arts is on hold again this year, but the stouts will keep flowing. February is Stout Month at Fort George. Lots and lots of stouts flowing all month.

The brewery invites the most-discerning beer enthusiasts to Astoria this February where they will encounter some of the most beautiful darkness in existence. Here’s what Fort George has planned for Stout Month.

ODE TO THE DARKNESS OF STOUT MONTH

Everything in the ground is still dead or dying. Any pretentious little bulb that might consider reaching for the deceptively warm noonday sunbeams will definitely be frost-bitten by 6PM. But neither the atmospheric cruelty of February, nor the continuing climactic aversion to large gatherings and indoor events could stop Stout Month from coming.

It came. It’s here. It’s here at last. 

We brewed a lot of stouts. We’re still brewing stouts. We’re putting beer in barrels and kegs at an unprecedented rate. And we’re ready. We’re ready to pour you a pint.

Beginning on February 1st, we’ll have new stouts pouring every week, cinnamon roll stouts, chai stouts, heavy stouts, light stouts, nitro stouts, cellared stouts, mint chocolate stouts, pecan stouts, table stouts, cookie stouts. The stout you always wished for? We have that stout. The stout you heard about but never got to try? We’re pouring that stout. The stout that came to you in a dream? We will fill a crowler of that stout, and hand it across the bar, so you can take it home and share it with your friends, while telling them of your magical journey in the land of stout.

While you’re here, indulge in dark food specialsdark dessertsdark guest beerssemi-dark lectures every Thursday night, Live music (questionably dark) on Sundays, and Guest Brewers from the four corners of the Pacific Northwest (varying degrees of darkness). We’re firing up ye olde firkin, the cask beer engine in the Taproom, from which ancient stouts will be gradually flowing. Blind Taster Tray to test your stout palate? We’ve got that. Cavatica Stout Cheesecake? Yes. Dark beer-saturated meats and delicious fried foods? You bet. Bottles of exclusive stouts to take home? Yes.
