Wednesday June 12, 5pm: Bear Republic Rarities Night

11 Jun

On Wednesday, we’ll have something from our pals in Northern California, Bear Republic Brewing. 3 kegs that have never been in our area before. We’ll be tapping them all at 5pm. Here’s the run down:

Crazy Ivan Belgian IPA

Maibock

Global Kolsch

If that wasn’t enough, we’ll also fool around and Randall off a keg of always delicious Racer 5 IPA. We’ll be going through a mix of Simcoe hops, Amarillo hops, Centennial hops, and grapefruit zest.

Kegs are tapping at 5pm! See you there…

Monday May 6th is the first day of Tacoma Drinks Washington Beer Week. This is where we devote 100% of our taps to WA made beer for 7 days to support, showcase, but mostly enjoy the beers from the brewers right here in our backyard.

To kick off this year’s TDWBW, we’re tapping a quartet of beers from Seattle’s own Epic Ales. Known for his ingredient usage and pushing style boundaries, brewmaster/HMFIC Cody will be on hand to talk shop. Here’s the lineup:

• Bottom of the Sea (Black Oyster Gose)
• GastroPod (Nettle/Wheat Beer)
• Padre Azul (Agave Sour)
• Solar Trans Amplifier (Camomile & Ginger Wit)

It all goes down at 6pm.
