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.

Sightseeing
The standout thing to do in Astoria however is undoubtedly visiting the Columbia River Maritime Museum which lies along the waterfront. Set in a wonderful wave-shaped building, it offers up an interesting look into the city’s seafaring heritage and has innumerable artifacts and interactive exhibits for you to peruse. Since being founded in 1963, the museum has expanded considerably and now includes everything from maritime models and maps to figureheads, weapons, and a Fresnel Lens. In total, there are over 50,000 photos and objects to explore with informative displays documenting the history of fishing, exploring, and military maneuvers in the region. Besides watching a film in its theater or seeing some of its historic vessels, you can also take a tour around the Lightship Columbia which is anchored alongside the museum. Now a National Historic Landmark, it used to guide ships to safety at the mouth of the Columbia River which not for nothing is known as the ‘Graveyard of the Pacific’.

ust twenty minutes’ drive to the west of the center you can find the stupendous scenery, nature, and historic sites of Fort Stevens State Park. Nestled at the north-westernmost tip of the state, it lies just across Youngs Bay from Downtown Astoria and has lots of great outdoor activities for you to enjoy. Built towards the end of the American Civil War, Fort Stevens, its batteries and bunkers were erected to guard the mouth of the Columbia River. Although not much now remains, visiting its museum is still an interesting affair as you see old uniforms and weapons and learn about the fort’s history.

Another of the most recognizable landmarks in town is the massive and majestic Astoria Column which lies perched atop of Coxcomb Hill. Overlooking the mouth of the Columbia River, it offers up some of the best views of the city and its surroundings with the Astoria-Megler Bridge and even Pacific to be spied off in the distance on clear days. Erected in 1926, the tall, slender tower rises up thirty-eight meters into the air with its exterior being coated in magnificent murals that depict significant events and scenes from the state’s early history. While some friezes focus on the local Clatsop and Chinook Indians, others instead look at the Lewis and Clark Expedition or the arrival of the railroads. Aside from taking in its amazing art, it is well worth traipsing up the 164 stairs to its top due to the phenomenal panoramas of the Oregon Coast on show.

One of the city’s standout symbols and sights, the enormous Astoria-Megler Bridge spans the lower Columbia River and connects Astoria and Oregon to Point Ellice in Washington. Due to its arresting architecture, the bridge makes for a striking sight and has even appeared in films such as Free Willy and The Goonies. Completed in 1966, it is impressively still the longest truss bridge in North America, stretching over six and a half kilometers in length. Designed by William Adaire Bugge, it towers to sixty meters in height with each of its cantilever-span sections only carrying one lane of traffic in each direction.

Due to its strategic and secluded setting just inland from the Pacific, its port acted as a stop-off point for seafaring voyages for many years with numerous things to do in Astoria relating either to its maritime past or the wonderful waters around it. Remarkably enough, Astoria was the first US settlement established west of the Mississippi with the famous Lewis and Clark Expedition having wintered here in 1805. Aside from this, the city’s other main claim to fame is that it was the setting for blockbuster hit The Goonies with numerous sites around town having featured in the 1985 film.

Cape Disappointment is located across the river in Washington just 20mins from Astoria. It got it’s name from Captain John Mearess who failed to cross the river bar in 1788. There’s a lot of history that’s tied to this place! The State Park is large and has a diverse landscape of old-growth forests where you can hike, freshwater lakes for boating, saltwater marches, the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, and two lighthouses (North Head Lighthouse and Cape Disappointment Lighthouse) We spent half the day exploring the park, first starting out by hiking to Cape Disappointment Lighthouse, stopping to look at the Dead Man’s Cove, and then visiting the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center. During sunset time we drove over to the North Head Lighthouse which was recently renovated. The park has a lot of camping as well and Alex grew up camping there almost every summer.
