Fort George Brewery in Astoria celebrated the end of a yearlong, million-dollar project to launch their beers statewide with a special Lager off their new canning line.

The company has gone from six to 28 employees in just four years.

Tall 16-ounce cans made their way off the brewery’s new canner and into the hands of many of the people who have participated in downtown Astoria’s most recent revival. With familiar popping sounds, the cans were opened and drained within minutes.
