Today we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo and our appreciation for one of our favorite cuisines. Petit beef coulotte with roasted peppers, beans, cotija, tomatillo salsa and warm corn tortillas on the menu now—get one along with $7 margaritas tonight. ...

On now: Columbia river king salmon BLT. Blackened salmon with bacon, lettuce, and tomato with dill aioli on seeded wheat bread. So. Good. ...

@kentpolicewa threw out a challenge over on Twitter to create some kind of chocolate pretzel. Here’s our entry. Would you eat it or no? #nationalpretzelday ...

We’re a bit low on staff for today, so we’ll be opening the Bistro & Beer Garden at 1 instead of 11, and closing our kitchen for orders at 6:30. ...

Space Church IPA launches at both of our locations today. We release this beer twice a year in celebration of the aerospace industry right here in the Kent Valley. This NE-Style IPA is packed with Galaxy, Citra and Comet hops. Come get it on tap and in 4-packs.⁣

Why Space Church? When you work at the rocket company down the street and they call you in to a weekend meeting, it becomes known as going to Space Church.⁣
...

Both locations are back open today. And, just in time for the amazing weather, we've started making the first of several improvements to the outdoor area at The Tap Room & Brewery.⁣

Come check out what we've done this afternoon. More improvements are coming, but we think you'll like what we've done so far.
...

We will be closed today (Monday, April 12th) and tomorrow as we’re still waiting out the quarantine process for some of our staff.🤞that this weeks tests all come back negative. Thankfully everyone is doing fine but we’re following all of the guidelines from the CDC before we bring everyone back in. ...

We’re saying Aloha (the “hello” meaning) again to The Spirit of Aloha. We first brewed this delicious fruit-infused beer back in 2019 with our friends from Georgetown Brewing. They joined us again several weeks back for another go at it.⁣

We brewed up base beer with Pale Malt and Flaked oats, then hopped it with Citra & Simcoe. During fermentation, it’s infused with around 350 lbs. of Mango and Guava puree. The result is a delicious, fruit-packed, wonderfully aromatic IPA that goes down oh so smooth. Available on tap at both of our locations, as well as in 4-packs. It’s a smaller batch, so limited quantities. Come get it before we say Aloha (the “goodbye” meaning) to it.⁣

We’re also delivering cases of cans to Georgetown this afternoon, so watch their socials for when they put it up for sale as well.⁣

The Bistro & Beer Garden is back open today, and we’re looking forward to serving up tasty food and drinks on this beautiful, sunny day! ...

Happy Easter! We will be closed today and tomorrow (April 4-5) as we are still waiting for some of our employees to be able to come back from quarantine and are still running shorthanded. Back open regular hours Tuesday. ...

If you order a brat plate right now, you’ll get to try our first batch of house made bratwursts made with the smoked pork belly we use for our bacon, and a little bit of our Pre Flight Pilsner. Not only are they super delicious, but they are made to pair perfectly with our mustard and pickled peppers. ...

The Bistro & Beer Garden is back open today, just in time for some beautiful spring weather. And with Phase 3 in effect, we can now take groups of up to 10 people, inside and out, at both locations. ...

Just a reminder that the Bistro & Beer Garden will be closed Monday and Tuesday this week for deep cleaning and maintenance. Back open on Wednesday! ...

Today, at both locations, we can pour you Test Pilot Lager #2. During the winter months, when we have a little more free tank space, we like to play around a bit. This version of our rustic, Franconian-inspired beer is heavy on the pilsner malt with a touch of Munich added for complexity, along with Hallertauer Perle and Mittlefrüh hops. Lagered for more than two months, it’s another offering in our beer lineup under 5% abv.⁣

Reservations recommended at The Bistro & Beer Garden during traditionally busy times.
...

Now on until it’s gone—smoked pulled pork torta with cilantro onion relish, cotija, and fresh tomatoes. Pairs well with Friday. ...

The Bistro is back open today, and we appreciate the supportive comments from yesterday very much. We are happy to report that all employee tests have come back negative. However we did ask 3 of our employees to quarantine for 10 days and get retested before returning to work, so we’ll be shorthanded for a bit. Rather than overwork the rest of our staff, we’re going to give everyone a break by shutting down Monday and Tuesday for some maintenance. We will be open all weekend and will certainly appreciate seeing you all as well as your patience as we work to safely bring everyone back to work. ...

Since we closed the Bistro for today, we’re opening the Tap Room a bit early for you. Starting at 2:30, Rachael will be there pouring beer, cider, and wine. And now that we are in Phase 3, we’re at 50% occupancy which means even on this windy day we have plenty of space! (Yes, this an old photo, no, we are not allowed to seat people at the bar just yet.) ...

The Bistro & Beer Garden location will be closed today due to an employee exposure to Covid. While we are still awaiting test results, we felt it was best to spend today proactively making sure all surfaces and work areas are sanitized thoroughly. The employee who reported the exposure does not come in direct contact with guests and will be under 10 day quarantine per CDC guidelines before returning. We’ve had no reports of symptoms or illness from our staff. As of now, we are planning to open regular hours tomorrow. The Tap Room will be open from 4-7 tonight. ...
