MORE: As a part of The Goonies 25th Anniversary Celebration in 2010, Mayor Willis Van Dusen declared June 7 to be officially recognized as Goonies Day in Astoria, Oregon. This date is special to Astorians because it is the anniversary of the day the film was released into theaters in 1985. The Astoria-Warrenton Chamber encourages fans, both local and abroad, to celebrate the anniversary.

Next year is The Goonies 30th anniversary, and we'll be celebrating in style. The cast came out for a riotous reunion in 2010 for the 25th anniversary, and we hope to have some of them out again. Start planning now for June 2015!

The Oregon Film Museum celebrates the art and legacy of films and film-making in the State of Oregon. Housed in the old Clatsop County Jail, known to Goonies fans as the scene of the opening jail break, the museum invites visitors to explore this and other films and the production behind making movies in Oregon. The Oregon Film Museum provides visitors the opportunity to make their own movie, with three green screen experiences, edit and have it sent to them by email. Open daily, year round. Located at 732 Duane Street in Astoria. Admission is $6 for adults and $2 for children.

SPONSORS: Goonies Day 2014 is a joint effort of the Astoria Warrenton Chamber of Commerce and the Oregon Film Museum. We appreciate wide support from the community, including event sponsors: Astoria Scuba, Best Western Lincoln Inn, Cannery Pier Hotel & Spa, Long Beach Peninsula Visitors Bureau and the Holiday Inn Express; and activity hosts.

More Official 'Game of Thrones' Beers Are Coming to Celebrate the TV Series' 10th Anniversary

Danish brewery Mikkeller has inked a multi-year deal to sell GoT-themed beers worldwide.

Ten years have passed since Game of Thrones debuted on HBO. Nearly two years have passed since the show ended its run. And during the eight years in-between, GoT had no shortage of food and beverage-related tie-ins: wine, whisky, Oreos, Mountain Dew, Shake Shack, and more.

One of the biggest partnerships was with Ommegang: Over the course the series, the New York brewery released (and occasionally re-released) 15 different official Game of Thrones&apos beers—with the final one, My Watch Has Ended, arriving after the show&aposs finale.

But we&aposre already coming full circle: A new beer is arriving in celebration of the ten-year anniversary of Game of Thrones&apos first episode. And this time around, Warner Bros. Consumer Products has partnered with a different brewery to launch what is set to be an entirely new range of GoT-inspired beers. On April 17, fans can get their first sip of Mikkeller Iron Anniversary IPA.

The Denmark-based Mikkeller—which also operates locations around the globe including in San Francisco, San Diego, and formerly New York—will bring a larger scope to this new Game of Thrones collaboration, with the beers set to be sold around the world. That said, this first release will only be available in limited quantities in select markets… though thankfully that includes the United States.

"From the very beginning, collaborations have been one of the key elements in Mikkeller&aposs universe and are one of the things we have the most fun with and love the most," said Mikkel Bjergsø, the brewery&aposs founder and creative director. "We have done a lot of them, but this is without a doubt the biggest so far, and we are extremely proud and happy to get this opportunity. We are looking forward to brewing a lot of fantastic beers and sharing them with the series&apos dedicated fan base and other beer lovers."

Iron Anniversary IPA is a 7 percent ABV New England-style IPA, described by Bjergsø as offering a "bright aroma of fresh pineapple, mango, peach, rose petals and a hint of vanilla [followed by] flavors of passionfruit, papaya, mango and berries [with] a hint of hop bitterness" and a crisp finish.

But television is a visual medium, and the beer was designed with that in mind. "The first step of the collaboration involved creating a beer label that elegantly merged Game of Thrones&apos unique universe with Mikkeller&aposs more lighthearted and colorful expression," Bjergsø explained. As such, Mikkeller&aposs longtime art director, Keith Shore—known for his somewhat cartoony work—was also the one who designed the Iron Anniversary label.

And that&aposs just the beginning of this multi-year partnership. The brands say plans are already underway for two more beers to be launched this year alone, with "several more" coming in the "next few years." These beers are set to cover a wide range of styles—lagers, stouts, spontaneously fermented beers, and even non-alcoholic beers�turing a mix of wide and limited releases. And, yes, Mikkeller will be selling GoT-inspired merch, too.

But let&aposs not get ahead of ourselves. For now, Iron Anniversary IPA will be available starting April 17 for direct-to-consumer sales where available via Mikkeller&aposs website as well as in select retailers in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, and North Carolina.

"We have done a lot of them, but this is without a doubt the biggest so far, and we are extremely proud and happy to get this opportunity. We are looking forward to brewing a lot of fantastic beers and sharing them with the series&apos dedicated fan base and other beer lovers."

Iron Anniversary IPA is a 7 percent ABV New England-style IPA, described by Bjergsø as offering a "bright aroma of fresh pineapple, mango, peach, rose petals and a hint of vanilla [followed by] flavors of passionfruit, papaya, mango and berries [with] a hint of hop bitterness" and a crisp finish.

But television is a visual medium, and the beer was designed with that in mind. "The first step of the collaboration involved creating a beer label that elegantly merged Game of Thrones&apos unique universe with Mikkeller&aposs more lighthearted and colorful expression," Bjergsø explained. As such, Mikkeller&aposs longtime art director, Keith Shore—known for his somewhat cartoony work—was also the one who designed the Iron Anniversary label.

And that&aposs just the beginning of this multi-year partnership. The brands say plans are already underway for two more beers to be launched this year alone, with "several more" coming in the "next few years." These beers are set to cover a wide range of styles—lagers, stouts, spontaneously fermented beers, and even non-alcoholic beers�turing a mix of wide and limited releases. And, yes, Mikkeller will be selling GoT-inspired merch, too.

But let&aposs not get ahead of ourselves. For now, Iron Anniversary IPA will be available starting April 17 for direct-to-consumer sales where available via Mikkeller&aposs website as well as in select retailers in California, Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, and North Carolina.


More Official 'Game of Thrones' Beers Are Coming to Celebrate the TV Series' 10th Anniversary

Danish brewery Mikkeller has inked a multi-year deal to sell GoT-themed beers worldwide.

Ten years have passed since Game of Thrones debuted on HBO. Nearly two years have passed since the show ended its run. And during the eight years in-between, GoT had no shortage of food and beverage-related tie-ins: wine, whisky, Oreos, Mountain Dew, Shake Shack, and more.

One of the biggest partnerships was with Ommegang: Over the course the series, the New York brewery released (and occasionally re-released) 15 different official Game of Thrones&apos beers—with the final one, My Watch Has Ended, arriving after the show&aposs finale.

But we&aposre already coming full circle: A new beer is arriving in celebration of the ten-year anniversary of Game of Thrones&apos first episode. And this time around, Warner Bros. Consumer Products has partnered with a different brewery to launch what is set to be an entirely new range of GoT-inspired beers. On April 17, fans can get their first sip of Mikkeller Iron Anniversary IPA.

The Denmark-based Mikkeller—which also operates locations around the globe including in San Francisco, San Diego, and formerly New York—will bring a larger scope to this new Game of Thrones collaboration, with the beers set to be sold around the world. That said, this first release will only be available in limited quantities in select markets… though thankfully that includes the United States.

"From the very beginning, collaborations have been one of the key elements in Mikkeller&aposs universe and are one of the things we have the most fun with and love the most," said Mikkel Bjergsø, the brewery&aposs founder and creative director. "We have done a lot of them, but this is without a doubt the biggest so far, and we are extremely proud and happy to get this opportunity. We are looking forward to brewing a lot of fantastic beers and sharing them with the series&apos dedicated fan base and other beer lovers."
