Fort George Brewery is not only committed to crafting award winning beer, they also care deeply about supporting non profits in their hometown. With historical and contemporary roots in the Astoria, Oregon community, Grays Harbor Historical Seaport is humbled to have been selected by Fort George for one of their coveted monthly Benefit Nights at their brew pub!
On May 29th between 4:00 PM and 10:00 PM, Historical Seaport will takeover the upstairs restaurant and bar at Fort George, offering raffles and merchandise for sale, information about what our tall ships programs on the Oregon Coast, and live music by Portland Americana trio Three for Silver. There is no cover charge to attend, and 100% of all the night’s profits will be donated back to the tall ships to fund scholarships for educational field trips.
Items to raffle off during the evening include gift certificates to Astoria businesses, coffee and tea packages, scuba lessons, fine art, apparel, and more. Raffle items will be grouped into 4 baskets with each raffle ticket available for just $5. The grand prize for the night is a 3 day, 2 night getaway vacation (airfare and hotel included) to one of 5 available destinations**. Tickets for this amazing deal valued at $1000 are just $20 each!
Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain have deep ties to Astoria. The original Lady Washington was captained by Robert Gray who is commemorated on the famous Astoria Column. Today the tall ships work with Clatsop Community College’s Marine Sciences program and Tongue Point Job Corps to sponsor professional maritime training, and the tall ships have developed collaborative programs with the Columbia River Maritime Museum and the Astoria Chamber of Commerce. Fort George Brewery’s selection of Historical Seaport is a testament to our commitment to Astoria.
This event is a rare fundraising opportunity that we hope you can be part of! Every meal or drink you order or raffle ticket you purchase on May 29th supports the tall ships. We hope to see you upstairs at Fort George Brewery!
Fort George Brewery and Pub is located at 1483 Duane Street, Astoria, OR 97103
