Early Summer Beer Float Social! w/ Ice Cream Social Sat. May 28th, 3-6p

on Fri, 05/20/2016 - 00:24

We are just about a month away from the official start of summer, but we can’t wait to bring back one one of our most beloved traditions: the Beer Float Social! We can’t think of a better way to ring in another beautiful Washington Summer than pairing craft beer and artisanal, locally-made ice cream from our friends at Ice Cream Social.

Saturday, May 28th, from 3p to 6p, we will be hosting our friends from Tacoma’s very own Ice Cream Social, who will be slinging scoops of their latest creations. And to pair, we’ll be tapping up some seasonally appropriate brews.

May the 4th Be with Uinta! Tangerine Hop Nosh IPA Release Party, 5pm

on Fri, 04/29/2016 - 22:09

Not many non-coastal IPAs get the sort of attention that Uinta’s Hop Nosh does, which is a testament to its delicious staying power. Which is why it is a cause for celebration when a new variant on the bright and hoppy brew comes out. 

May the 4th be with Uinta for this May 4th as we help launch the brand new fresh Tangerine Hop Nosh IPA! In addition of cans and draft available of the new brew, we will also be pouring some favorites from their catalog including Stompin’ Grounds Coffee Stout, Uinta Pale, and Gin-Barrel Aged Cucumber Farmhouse.

It’s A Stout Time!, Wed. Apr. 27th, 5pm

on Fri, 04/22/2016 - 03:09

In a world… where the unknown lurks in the darkest corners… where the rays of sun send certain beers we love into hiding, hibernation, and even extinction. We at Pint Defiance want to reclaim this season for the beers of a darker lineage: the roasty, the boozy, the aged. So we are bringing together a night of rare, special, and unique stouts we’ve been squirreling away in our cellar, with vintages that will make you exclaim “IT’S A STOUT TIME!”

Join us Wednesday, April 27th, starting at 5pm as we host a springtime celebration of a darker persuasion.

Stretch your hammies and break-in your new running shoes, because Pint Defiance’s 3rd Annual Seattle Beer Week Marathon is just around the bend. We’ve rallied a curated collection of beers from local Washington brewers for an eleven-day challenge to craft beers drinkers of all walks to enjoy 26 different Washington brews. Throughout Seattle Beer Week, all of our taps will feature all Washington beers—a mix of crowd favorites and “ultra” rarities—run back-to-back-to-back. Our Sampler Sunday flights will feature all Washington beers too, which will net you four punches.
