Brewer's Night with Iron Horse, Wed. July 17th, 5-7PM

on Fri, 07/05/2013 - 22:48

July has already been an action-packed month for us here at Pint Defiance. And in the interest of keeping  things interesting, we are continuing our Brewer’s Night series momentum with Ellensburg’s very own Iron Horse Brewery. Started in 2005, it quickly gained notoriety with its ubiquitous Quilter’s Irish Death Black Ale, and It has continued to grow at an incredible pace.

Join us Wednesday, July 17th from 5 to 7, as we welcome the IH crew to Tacoma.

Brewer's Night with Stone, Wed. July 3rd, 5-7PM

on Wed, 06/26/2013 - 22:42

Everyone’s favorite  bad boys of beer will be here on the day before Independence Day to kick off the holiday right. Founded in 1996 by Greg Koch and Steve Wagner in San Marcos, CA, Stone Brewing Co. has become almost synonymous with the craft brewing movement. Makers of some of the most highly sought-after beers, they are not afraid to experiment or break boundaries.

Join us on Wednesday, July 3rd from 5pm to 7pm, as we embrace our inner gargoyles and kick off the 4th of July holiday.

Brewer's Night with Fort George, Wed. June 19th , 5-7PM

on Thu, 06/13/2013 - 00:32

HEY YOU GUYS! It has been far too long since our last Brewer's Night. So to reward your patience, we're bringing in those beer Goonies from Astoria, Fort George. We are excited to host members of the brewery team as we pour pints of special beers that are more limited edition than your red Sloth suspenders: Bourbon Barrel Vortex IPA and Spruce Budd Pale. Of course we'll be giving away brewery schwag, and exchanging our favorite Goonies quotes.

Join us Wednesday, June 19th, from 5p, to 7pm

Rare Keg Tapping!!! Saturday June 1st, 11AM -?

on Fri, 05/31/2013 - 18:27

Saturday June 1st, 11AM, we will be tapping a keg of Firestone Walker Parabola!


One of the most aggressive and sought-after barrel aged imperial stouts!  Bold Bourbon, tobacco and espresso aromas and a hint of American oak greet the nose.  Rich, chewy roasted malts, charred oak and bourbon-like vanilla attack the palate and finish with a bang.  A remarkably complex brew that offers a transcendental drinking experience – enjoy with good company.


If you have never tried it, it’s not to be missed!
