Brewer’s Night with Commons Brewery, Tuesday, Feb. 2nd, 5-7p

on Thu, 01/28/2016 - 02:07

Since 2011, Portland’s Commons Brewery has been producing small-batch, artisanal, Belgian-inspired farmhouse ales. Their dedication to craft and quality, as well as their fierce independent streak has given rise to some of the city’s most unique and innovative brews that have started to shift craft drinkers away from their safe zone of hoppy brews.

Join us Tuesday, Feb 2nd, from 5 to 7pm as we host the crew from Commons for a night of fun and—most importantly—great beers . On tap, we will be pouring Boysen Belgian Strong Dark with boysenberries, Cerise Noir Belgian Dark with sweet and sour

Variant Release Party with Ballast Point, Thurs, Feb. 4th, 5-7p

on Thu, 01/21/2016 - 04:34

Ballast Point, founded within a homebrew shop, has never been afraid of experimentation. At their tap room in San Diego, CA, one can find all sorts of flavor additions, infusions, and twists on their flagship line of brews. They made waves when they finally started packaging and shipping two variants of their Sculpin IPA—Grapefruit and Habenero—around the country. They are continuing that success in 2016 with many new variants that will be available outside the taproom for the first time.

Join us as we help launch Ballast Point next stage of craft beer domination.

Steve Luke has been a notable figure in the craft beer scene for over a decade. Even if you don’t know the name, you’ve most definitely enjoyed the man’s beers. For the past 4 years, Steve headed up the sour and wood-aged beer program at Elysian and developed killer IPA recipes like Space Dust.

Steve has cut out on his own to start one of Seattle’s newest and most talked about breweries, Cloudburst Brewing, and we wanted to help launch the new venture here in Tacoma. Join us Wednesday, January 13th, starting at 5pm as we showcase four fresh, new beers from Steve’s new venture.
