After a hike of Tillamook Head Trail with Lori and Jeanette we stopped in to the Seaside Brewing Co. to rehydrate and get some grub. We found the place first rate. They took the old jail and remodeled it to a very nice brew pub. They kept a rustic but clean style to the place. It had good outside seating for those few warm summer days we have. With the upstairs and main floor there was a good amount of inside seating. They had a good range of beers. We found a couple of stouts and an IPA we liked. Unfortunately they had stop brewing their Russian imperial Stout. We would have like to have try that. We found the food was good and a good value. Lori had the brisket sandwich and I did the pulled pork special. Jeanette had the fish tacos. Service was friendly and efficient, attentive but not bothersome. So a place for us to return to on future visits to the coast.
Jeanette and I did a road trip to coast on a rainy Sunday. Of course for lunch we had to find brewpub to stop into. Buoy Beer has shown up a several beer festival so it seem natural to try them in their hometown. First off fabulous location and nice pub layout. The view of the water was great and seeing sea lions through a glass floor was a fun bonus. Service was great and we both ended up having there Stout that we both agreed was very good. The only downer was the food. It was not bad and at a fair price but just not up to the rest of the experience. They tried to do something special but for us it was just off the mark. So for use a great place for a beer and view but we will try some other places in the future for food. But considering this is Astoria this may be as good as it gets.
