In a city and region overflowing with fantastic breweries, there is one which resides in Astoria, Oregon that is poised to jump ahead of the pack...Fort George. The recently rolled out a new canning line featuring two of the beers in their line, Vortex IPA, and 1811 Lager. Both can be found at various grocery stores about town now.
A couple months ago I teamed up with Josh Berger, who founded and runs Plazm magazine (and is an overall talented artist), to design, prototype and produce a new line of tap handles for the brewery. They will be showing up very soon at bars and restaurants up and down the West Coast.
They are made of bamboo, hand-rubbed with Japanese calligraphy ink with inset aluminum logo's...They turned out looking very sharp and definitely stand out in a crowd of tap handles.
