We are going to be tapping up some rare releases that rarely leave the brewery, including Peanut Butter Baltic Porter, Raspberry Russian Imperial Stout, Lemon Drop Sour, Cucumber Crush,

Brewer’s Night with Victory Brewing, July 8th, 5p-7p

on Thu, 07/02/2015 - 04:31

Founded in 1996 by Ron Barchet and Bill Covaleski in an old Pepperidge Farm bakery, Victory has grown considerably and evolved well outside the traditional small market of Downingtown, PA. With a focus on quality and consistency, their beers have become the archetype of East Coast brewing styles, yet have found a foothold with beer drinkers on the West Coast.

Join us Wednesday, July 8th, from 5pm to 7pm as we welcome the Victory Brewing Crew into Pint Defiance for our latest installment of our Brewer’s Nights.

The most ubiquitous of Seattle breweries, Fremont Brewing has set the standard for quality and consistency in our little beer hamlet of the Pacific Northwest. Which is why the announcement for a new year-round beer is such a big deal. Based on the recipe for the 5th Annual (2014) Seattle Beer Week Pale Ale, Fremont’s new Session Pale is dedicated to you, the Craft Beer Fan, for embracing adventure, creativity, facial hair, and the skilled craft people of our industry above all.

And Pint Defiance is proud to host the South Sound launch of this new brew.
