A new brewery just opened in Astoria, OR – Buoy Beer Company. And we’ve got pictures. As we understand it, they’ll eventually have a restaurant and taproom at the brewery. Three rooms, one location. For now, the taproom is open. Restaurant is on the way. We plan to make it to Astoria sometime in the next couple of months and will provide a complete report of what is happening south of the river. In the meantime, we have this.
Sara, a friend of the blog, took the pictures and tells us, “I was just in Astoria yesterday and wanted to share some photos from Buoy Beer. They are up and running now and the space looks awesome! The tap room is open and the full restaurant will be complete by summertime. I had an awesome time hanging out there last night. Food is great, beer is delicious and the owners and staff are very friendly.”
Taproom is at 1 – 7th Street, Astoria, Oregon
Here, one of the West’s most relentless rivers meets the wilderness of an entire ocean. The unstoppable meets the unyielding. And here, a community with grit and backbone make that meeting work.
The river that built a town is home for building this beer. A place where hard work and hustle matter; where the local color has seen a little weather; where the newest generation wasn’t born yesterday.
This is beer with history to it; a story to unfold, a tale to be told. Brewed from this confluence of pride and place. New beer, with a few centuries under its belt. Beer you can savor and share. Made of a few pure ingredients and a whole lot of local flavor.
Just like the town it comes from.
