Along one of the walls, his mother Karen is building a history of local breweries, including Fort George, Buoy Beer and the original Astoria Brewing Company started at Seventh and Duane streets in 1872, the city's first such establishment.
"This will be Astoria Brewing Company, and the other (brewhouse) will be Wet Dog Cafe and Brewery," said Huber about the delineation of the two breweries.
The new taproom overlooking the brewery will start initially with just beer and a small accessory line for sale. Like many other businesses, it reuses old parts of the building in its seating and counters. Huber said the family bought thousands of dollars worth of antique hangar sheet metal from Boeing to decorate one of the walls.

Using the old system, said Dalgren, he can test the viability of yeast before starting fermentation, as well as work on seasonal and experimental brews, similar to what Fort George and Buoy Beer do with their smaller brewhouses.

"This is designed, to a point, to be a one person operation," said Dalgren, visibly giddy over the new setup. The fermentation, hot water and conditioning tanks line the basement floor.

Astoria Brewing originally wanted to put a brewery at street level, but the requirements to make the floor structurally sound for the brewhouse made putting it in the basement less expensive.

Pacific Rim Brewing, as the Allens' and Hubers' operation was originally known, changed its name in homage. Starting in 1997, it was the first of the most recent spate of breweries in Astoria, which now has four including the small operation Hondo's Brew Cork.
"We're shooting for the end of the summer," said co owner Andy Huber, who wouldn't hazard a more specific guess as to when it would open.

Huber co owns Astoria Brewing Company and Wet Dog with parents Karen and Steve Allen, along with his siblings Mike and Kera. The Wet Dog Cafe, which Adidas Energy Boost 2.0 Atr Core Black opened in 1995, has been operating off the same four barrel brewing system since 1997. Over that time, it's been able to often keep 10 or more beers on tap, which head brewer John Dalgren said is all about management.
The new 15 barrel system, said Dalgren, could increase the Astoria Brewing Company's output to 120 kegs per week, allowing it to add more styles and increase distribution to the Portland market. A new keg washing and filling system can wash and fill a keg in several minutes. The brewery includes an underground cold storage and a crane attached to the ceiling of the first floor that lifts kegs out of the brewhouse.
Although the businesses will be separate, Dalgren said beer will be piped about 50 feet from the storage tanks directly to the taps of Wet Dog, preventing them from running dry as often.
Ten years ago, Dalgren joined Wet Dog as a part time restaurant worker. He learned brewing from then head brewer and later Fort George co founder Jack Harris. He's been working diligently to set up the new brewhouse.
