© Fortside Brewing Company
Fortside Brewing Company was created to strengthen the culture of craft beer in SW Washington, which is considered the “Fort”-side of the Columbia River, hence the name of the brewery. The brewery creates beers that people enjoy smelling, tasting, and experiencing, always with local ingredients. Try a beer in the taproom or take a crowler, growler, or keg to go. Just some of the brews from Fortside you may or may not find on tap include Kanaka Ale, Big Beast, Lupinator, Couve-toberfest, Double Baked, Cocoa-Fied, Barrel-Fied, Hop Gold, and Orange Whip.
The taproom is comfortable and inviting as well as kid-friendly and dog-friendly so no one has to get left behind. The taproom is open Tuesdays to Thursdays from 4 pm to 10 pm, Fridays from 2 pm to 10 pm, Saturdays from 1 pm to 10 pm, and Sundays from 1 pm to 8 pm. On Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, you can get food from Mad Dogs Gourmet right on site. They specialize in gourmet all-natural hot dogs, including beef and turkey dogs, organic chicken apple sausage, pork bratwurst, certified angus hamburgers, and house-made veggie patties.
