Here's to New Beer-ginnings

on Mon, 09/03/2012 - 01:18

Tacoma, City of Destiny, is a place for new beginnings. As the crew of Pint Defiance prepares to open its doors next week to the thirsty beer lovers of the South Sound, we took the opportunity to get to know our neighbors a little better, and to learn about craft beer brewing along the way.

Our first staff meeting this past week was a gracious tour with Mike and Travis from Seven Seas Brewing in Gig Harbor, Washington. Pint Defiance staff run the gamut of beer knowledge you'd expect from a group comprised of craft beer connoisseurs, home brewers, and just plain beer lovers, so this tour was a great way for all of us to come together and learn about the process of brewing beer-- mouthwatering, Northwest craft beer.

Afterwards, we were compelled to stop at the 7 Seas Tap Room up the road for a taste of the finished product.

Being incredibly spoiled as we are in the Northwest, we were able to sample several beers in one sitting, including Cutt's NW Amber Ale, the British Pale Ale, Rude Parrot IPA, the Port Royale Export Style Stout, and a seasonal watermelon ale our employee Gary dubbed the 7 Seeds!

It's hard not to feel grateful after a day spent in the company of good people--a special thanks to 7 Seas Brewing for allowing us to see their brewing system up close, and for the flavorsome sampler tray. There's no better way to get to know your new co-workers and new friends in the industry than over a pint!

From all of us at Pint Defiance, cheers to you and to all of the delicious things ahead!
