If I wanted water, I would have asked for water.

To Astoria

On Saturday, I'll be on a junket of sorts with three eminent beererati: Lisa Morrison, John Foyston, and Abram Goldman-Armstrong. We were invited out by the Astoria PR folks who would like to highlight the town's beery credentials. I am a pretty big fan of Astoria already, but I'm always up for the chance to walk through some guided tours of breweries. I haven't pulled out the vid cam in long months, so this is a good opportunity to do so. Expect a flurry of reports back and, with luck, some entertaining video.

The agenda is intentially loose so that we can do some investigation on our own. Aside from the breweries there, do you know of anything that's a must-see?

I haven't been to Astoria yet and I would really like to get out there this summer. Besides the feature on the town in a Beer NW issue last year I haven't seen anything else for reference. I'm sure your posts will be much useful for me.

Tell Abram I said hello and is he working on his book? And hello, too, to Lisa, who I've not met but have corresponded with.

Oh, and have fun!

I got the same invite from the the Astoria Warrenton people, too. Now I am wondering what to write about that will differ from the rest of you guys. Check out Seattle Beer Blog's post: http://seattlebeernews.com/?p=206
The Goonie House sounds like the highlight!

Though not beer related, the Columbia Maritime Museum (may not be the correct name) is well worth the visit.

Seriously though, be sure to head up the hill to the Astoria Column. http://www.astoriacolumn.org/

If you have time, I'd also head up to Fort Stevens.

It's been a few years since I had it, but there was a fish and chips place a few blocks east of the Maritime Museum set up in an old boat that had great fresh tuna and fries. I don't know if it's still there or if its the same caliber fried food as before, but may be worth checking out.
