Recap: Fort George Fresh Hop Tap Takeover at Bridgetown Beerhouse

Special thanks to special guest writer Christopher Baker of fame for taking the time to recap last night festivities at Bridgetown Beerhouse. What a good time!!

Last night Bridgetown Beerhouse hosted another great event. Astoria’s own, Fort George Brewery brought to town (4) varieties of fresh hop beer for us Portlanders to enjoy. On tap were their Co-Hoperative Ale, Fresh Hop Sunrise Oatmeal Pale Ale (OPA), Fresh Hop Vortex IPA, and Hopstoria. Each beer had its own distinct taste. Hopstoria was my pick for the evening, but I must say every beer was pretty frickin’ fantastic. From talking to folks I think this was the general consensus. A big thank you goes out to Fort George for sharing their special brews and their brewer Spencer Gotter with us city folk. Tim Ensign of Powered ByYeast Brand Management deserves just as much gratitude for making these special events happen.
