    Nothing to apologize about, not your fault at all. I was just checking if there was a liquor store that had some bottles or something. Not sure where there next stop is but I will relay that place to them.

    DG failed to mention Dab Lab, Story of the Ghost, Fluffhead and Sticky Hands on tap tonight. That's worth a trip down to Arch Bridge before the bonus DG bottles they can go home with.

    Those sound like band names.

    My friends are actually starting in Long Beach, so the wouldn't have gone on that direction. But I will keep that place in mind when I do a trip out there.

    Growler Guys in Astoria or Wine and Beer Haus in Seaside might have some dG on tap...

    I know it's a longshot but anyone going to dG this weekend and could do a Gpufmb? I'm not able to make it.

    Looking for both lambic/zwanze glasses.
    Normally I wouldn't ask but I really want them. :D

    Probably not the place but headed out to astoria this weekend, hitting up the ft. george festival of dark arts.

    Any other must hit spots besides the obvious while i'm up there?

    Buoy Brewing. Solid beers and a great pilsner.

    Also a hell of a view from the taproom

    Reach Break is open now in Astoria. I believe an ex-de Garde brewer is heading this place up.

    Don't forget to look down at the floor at Buoy and say hi to the seals.

    Yep a brewer from de Garde. One of the guys who started Reach Break is a San Diego homie. I wonder if Finn is on Talk Beer, hmm.

    I'm not sure I see the benefit in a membership that requires you to go to the taproom (even if local) for a free beer 31 out of 52 weeks to break even....

    If they get 150 people to sign up, great for them. It's guaranteed tap room traffic and more money spent during each trip by those "members." And to be honest I wouldn't be surprised if they do, but calling it a "membership really benefiting locals" is a bit of a stretch IMO.

    Block 15's membership is the only membership I can think of that actually benefits locals. It's also one that even me as a self proclaimed beer (and especially membership) cynic would actually join.

    Footbridge trail to Wilson Falls off the 6 makes for a nice forested hike, Cape Lookout State Park is a good option for some ocean views. There's plenty others if you're willing to drive a bit

    Cascade Head is awesome, but probably about 45 or so minutes south. Worth it, IMO. And you can stop at Twist on your way if you get parched.
