The Winter season has always been about celebrating traditions, and our most favorite-est one of all is our Winter Beer-nanza. Never been? Here’s how it works: drink great beer and enjoy festive treats while wearing an ugly sweater. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well not even Scrooge will be able to deny the festive lineup we have in store for you. We have some rare and unique holiday beer releases from Fort George, Evil Twin, Cascade Barrel House, Ommegang, and the triumphant return of the Pint Defiance and Airways collaboration, Strip Mall Riot IPA!

Join us Wednesday, Dec. 2nd, starting at 5pm for our Toy Drive for the benefit of the YWCA Pierce County. You can leave your jacket at home because you’ll be feeling the warm-and-fuzzies when you bring in a new, unwrapped toy to donate and get entered in a chance to take home some awesome 21st Amendment and No-Li prizes.

Brewer’s Night with pFriem, Wed. Nov. 18th, 5-7p

Since it began in 2012, pFriem Family Brewers has been a darling of the craft beer scene in their home of Hood River and the surrounding Pacific Northwest. Built on the idea that work, life, passion, and family can all be tightly integrated, their beers are personal and draw influences from both Belgium and the Northwest. It is difficult not to be superfluous about pFriem once you’ve tried their beer.


Join us Wednesday, November 18th, from 5pm to 7pm as we host the pFriem Family for a night of great beers and fun.

Craft beer lovers who reside in the Evergreen State are very familiar with the piney and woody characteristics of our favorite IPAs. And with their latest winter seasonal release, Fort George Brewing has found a new way to emphasize those aroma and flavors. Born out of Sales Manager, Tim Ensign’s tree farm, Magnanimous IPA is brewed with freshly harvested Grand Fir tips. “This beer has a solid backbone,” says Tim, “coming in at 7% ABV.

Brewer’s Night with Wet Coast, Wed. Nov. 4th, 5-7p

on Tue, 10/27/2015 - 23:13

One of the latest breweries to make a splash in the South Puget Sound beer scene, Wet Coast Brewing Company has quickly built a cult following in and around their home in Gig Harbor. Built around a focus on quality and not quantity, they’ve tackled many traditional styles of beer and put their own twist on them, believing that there can be something for everyone.

We at Pint Defiance have seen Wet Coast born out of a love for great, fresh, craft beer and have been supporters since the beginning; We were even the first to tap a keg of their beer outside of the brewery. So now join us Wed.
