Wed Feb 22 – Wed Feb 29: Tacoma Drinks Washington Beer Week 2012

21 Feb

It’s baaa-aaaack. We’ve teamed up with our pals over at The Parkway again, and Tacoma Drinks Washington Beer Week is back…and it starts tomorrow.

We already designate the majority of our handles to WA brewed beer, but to focus on the amazing brews our brewing family in Washington creates, TRH will devote 100% of it’s taps to Washington Brewers. Nothing but delicious Washington ales, lagers, and ciders as far as you can see. As a bonus, if you complete the 2012 stamp card, you will receive a free 32oz growler commemorating the event.



Our pals at The Parkway will be cohorting in a similar fashion, so combined we can get as much WA made beer thru our taps as possible. We will not feature some of the same beers, but will be having some feature nights during the week to help fill your cards. The list of events included on your card will help you along your adventure!

Feb 22, The Red Hot: Tacoma debut of Wingman Brewers/Airways Brewing collaboration brew, Chocolate Rye Stout & more

TRH…Now With More Cask™

11 Jan

After months and months of tracking down parts, we finally unveiled our beer engine a week ago.
I heard about a beer engine months ago from John O’Gara, manager at the Parkway Tavern, and past employee of The Swiss. He told me Jack at The Swiss took out their engine recently, and I should inquire. Jack was glad to see it go to a new home (lemme pause for a moment to admire how people in this business help each other out, answer questions, and generally look out for each other…amazing). I even left the wooden tower it came in, wear marks and all, with just a few minor repairs to the corners. My own piece of Tacoma beer history.

I had it rebuilt and ready to go, mounted it to a small cooler that could hold steady cask temperature, and blammo…cask handle is born!
