Pint Defiance Goes to Hop School

on Mon, 09/17/2012 - 01:22

Hi everyone, R.J. here. You may not have seen me around Pint Defiance this last week and that is because I've gone back to school. Specifically Hopunion's annual Hop & Brew School. This is the 10th year they've put this on but my first opportunity to attend. I've dabbled in homebrewing over the past two years and wanted to learn more about that magical ingredient that goes into the beer that we all love, especially the NW-style ales we cherish here at Pint Defiance.

A little background on Hopunion: Hopunion, LLC is the largest supplier of hops to the craft and homebrewing industries.

Pint Defiance Grand Opening

on Tue, 09/11/2012 - 20:12

Just when you thought Tacoma couldn't get any more awesome, Pint Defiance opened yesterday. We had a steady stream of friends, family, and beer lovers through our doors all day, grabbing bottles from our cooler, having pints in our tap room, and catching up with friends.


Thanks for all the love, Tacoma!




In Heaven, there is no beer.

In Heaven, there is no beer

That's why we drink ours here!

-Popular German drinking song my dad sings after mowing the lawn (see also:

Despite the certain thelogical questions that arise from this diddy (why would God disallow beer in Heaven? Would this place even be Heaven if there were no beer?), it is a song from my roots that rang through my head last Saturday at the Fourth Annual Tacoma Craft Beer Festival.

Because I'm not so sure that the Beer Fest wasn't Heaven.

I mean, there was a gatekeeper...


...all of my friends were there...
