Brewer's Night with Skookum, Tues. Oct. 18, 5-7p

Dedicated to brewing with quality, locally-sourced ingredients, Skookum Brewery started in 2007 with a homebrewer's vision. Known colloquially as "the brewery in the woods," it was built on the loyalty of their friends and fans in their hometown of Arlington, Washington. Their following grew quickly, as buzz about their great American-style brews traveled far outside of small town. Today, Skookum is an institution, and a place where community is built around the love of great brews.

Join us Tuesday, Oct. 18th, from 5 to 7pm, as we host our latest Brewer's Night with Skookum Brewery. You'll quickly understand why this brewery has garnered so much attention when you try what we are pouring, including Double Citra Jack IPA, Rising Bines Mosaic Fresh Hop IPA, Breakfast of Crows Barrel-Aged Breakfast Stout, and Brown & Scary Imperial Brown w/ vanilla. The whole Skookum crew will be out in force for this one, and you may even take home some rad brewery schwag!

Don't miss it!

Fall Beer Float Social w/ Ice Cream Social, Sat. Oct. 15th, 3-6p

The inevitable changing of the seasons are often met with resigned sighs. But we instead squeal with delight, because one of our most beloved traditions around this time is the pairing of craft beer and artisanal, locally-made ice cream. That’s right, it is time once again for our Beer Float Social!

Saturday, Oct. 15th, 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 pumpkin and fall brews, including (but not limited to) Elysian Brewing Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale, Epic Brewing Company Imperial Pumpkin Porter, Southern Tier Brewing Company Pumking Imperial Pumpkin Ale, Boneyard Backbone Chocolate Espresso Stout, and Elemental Hard Cider Pumpkin Spice Cider.

Don't miss it.
