Fort George Stout Month Kicks Off Tomorrow

Here we are, smack in the middle of the Winter beer season. That means Stouts – big, bold, rich Stouts. I can enjoy a good Stout any time of year but, each February, Fort George Brewing Company out of Astoria, Oregon really brings the hits.

Last year, Burdick Breiwng Company in Seattle’s South Park neighborhood closed the doors to their taproom.  They’re still in the same location and are still brewing beer, but the city wanted them to make some upgrades to the taproom that were cost prohibitive, so Burdick decided instead to focus on bottling their beers and getting them on more taps around the city.

Now, Burdick is ready to unload some of the equipment they no longer need, since the taproom is no longer open.  So, they are holding a sale this coming Saturday the 11th, where you’ll be able to pick up some great surplus items.
