First Beer Competition ✓... First Gold Medal ✓... First Silver Medal ✓

We just returned from the 2016 Washington Brewers Festival in Redmond, WA.  What a blast we had!  If you have never been, this is a great beer festival and I highly recommend visiting it sometime.

Saturday morning, before the festival begins, the results of the 2016 Washington Beer Awards are announced.  WE SCORED TWO MEDALS!  We were so excited to bring home medals to SW Washington along with three other medal winning breweries; Loowit Brewing, Heathen Brewing and Ghost Runners Brewery.

Fortside was awarded a gold medal in the Imperial Stout category for Cocoa-Fied and a silver medal in the Wood / Barrel Aged category for 2015 Barrel-Fied.

We are so happy to finally be following our dream of helping strengthen craft beer culture in SW Washington.  Now NORTHBANK MAGAZINE has caught on to what is taking shape in Clark County as well and has centered their current quarterly issue on craft beer around Vancouver.  Big thanks to them for giving us so much attention!  We feel honored to be mentioned alongside those who came before us in #VANWA.

After what seems like an eternity...

We are open!  Well, we are open very softly anyway.  Our tasting room will now be open Thur - Sat from 4pm til 10pm.  We have batch #1 and batch  #2 on tap and should have more brews coming on weekly for your enjoyment.  Come visit and have a beer!

Thanks goes out to all of our friends who have helped and supported us on the long road to realizing this dream of starting a great brewery.  Now we begin the important work of helping to strengthen craft beer culture in SW Washington.  Beer Strong!
