The Wet Dog Café was founded in 1995. The Brewery was added in 1997 under the name Pacific Rim Brewery. The name of the Brewery was changed to Astoria Brewing Co. in 2005 commemorating Astoria’s first Brewery Company which was established in 1872. Their Brew Master uses only the finest ingredients to create our exceptional beers. Each beer is handcrafted using a wide range of hops & grains, thus creating unique flavors. It takes approximately 2 weeks for grain, water & hops to become their tasty brews. Their brewery has a 4 barrel system & in 2008 they added two 8 barrel fermenting tanks allowing them to produce over 800 barrels annually. In their efforts to being earth friendly, 2008 was marked with the Wet Dog adding 15 Solar panels on their roof, on ly to be the 2nd brewery in the State of Oregon to use solor energy to heat their hot water tanks for the production of their beer and for the use of hot water in their kitchen. The riverfront deck is open during the summer months thru fall, offering patrons a fantastic view of the Columbia River. Perhaps you will see the Astoria Riverfront Trolley make it’s way down the waterfront and stop at the foot of 11th Street.
