Georgetown "Medwards" Night, Wed. Aug. 9th, 5-7p

Even if you don’t know the man’s name, you’ve most certainly enjoyed the fruits of Georgetown Brewing’s Matt Edwards. The brain behind the Gold Medal Winning Bodhizafa IPA has been churning groundbreaking, innovative beers for years, and we feel it’s necessary to give credit where credit is due. 

Join us Wednesday, August 9th, from 5 to 7pm as we host an entire night dedicated to our friend Matt. We will be tapping up three IPAs straight out of his R&D brewery: June IPA, and two others so new they don’t have names yet. Come and meet the Georgetown crew, and drink great beer.

Double Mountain & Fort George Collab Release Party, Saturday, July 29th, 4p

Rivers have had a strong influence on the shape and culture of the Pacific Northwest. They’ve carved landscapes, provided power and riches, and denoted borders. In this case it has been a force for collaboration. Hood River and Astoria are connected by the mighty Columbia River, and Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom and Fort George Brewery has taken that fact to inspire their latest collaboration. “A River Runs Through It” Hop Shake IPA is full of ripe juicy citrus notes and earthy bitterness, and we are hosting its Tacoma release.
Join us Saturday, July 29th, starting at 4p, when we host both Double Mountain and Fort George for a brewers’ event more fun than a river float trip. In addition to having A River Runs Through It IPA on tap, we will also be tapping up awesome beers from both breweries, including Double Mountain Vaporizer Pale Ale, Dark & Moody Imperial Stout, and the epic Great Notion BrewingReuben's Brews/ Fort George 3-Way IPA. You won’t want to miss this.
