Just a reminder to join us at the Tap Room on Tuesday, November 29th to help raise money for this year's Shop With a Cop event. The slider bar will be open at 5 pm, and we'll be taking cash and credit card donations for the whole week. ...

We’re happy to welcome you back to The Bistro & Beer Garden in Downtown Kent with normal hours today. Enjoy lunch or dinner or something in between, along with our tasty beers or a hand-crafted cocktail. We open every day starting at 11 am.

The Tap Room & Brewery is closed until Tuesday, 11/29 for maintenance work.

Stop by today for your Thanksgiving Day beer needs. We have crowler and growler fills available at The Tap Room & Brewery. Growlers can also be filled at The Bistro & Beer Garden while you enjoy lunch or dinner.⁣

Both locations are closed on Thanksgiving Day. The Bistro & Beer Garden resumes normal hours on Friday. The Tap Room & Brewery re-opens on Tuesday, November 29th. We need the long weekend to get some much-needed maintenance work done.

As you’re probably aware, it’s Thanksgiving week and with that comes some holiday hour adjustments. Both of our locations will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, 11/24. The Bistro & Beer Garden resumes regular hours Friday, 11/25.⁣

The Tap Room & Brewery will be closed Friday, 11/25 and Saturday, 11/26 – reopening on Tuesday, 11/29 so we can take care of some much needed and overdue maintenance.⁣

Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving Week.

Join us at 5 pm at the Tap Room on November 29th to help raise money for this year’s Shop with a Cop event. Every year, the Kent Police Department teams up with Mayor Ralph and other volunteers to treat children in our community to a morning of Christmas shopping at Target. Each child gets a gift card, and a personal escort to help pick out gifts, clothes, or whatever they would like.
This year’s goal is to take 50 children shopping—let’s help them reach it! Come by the Tap Room on November 29th, say hello to Mayor Ralph and Chief Padilla, and visit our slider buffet for a minimum $10 donation.
All donations go directly to Kent Youth and Family Services. You can also make a donation directly through their website here: Be sure and put a note in the comments that the donation is for Shop with a Cop, and check to see if your employer will match your donation.

We’re testing out some happy hour menu items right now, like this baked Brie topped with pine nut cranberry agrodolce. Come by and let us know what you think!
P.S. We’re expecting a lot of larger groups planning holiday get togethers—if you’re one of them, please go on our website and find the groups page to make a reservation.

We are playing with some fun new seasonal menu items this week, including some street food inspired happy hour items! Stop by the Bistro & Beer Garden between 1-5 every day, and test out the first 3: an Irish “spice bag” filled with seasoned fried shrimp, fries, Fresno peppers, and onions; currywurst with our housemade bratwursts; or a fall inspired baked brie plate with pine nut cranberry agrodolce and toast. ...

‘Tis the season ... for our bi-annual release of Space Church IPA - a beer that celebrates the rich aerospace history in the Kent Valley. Packed with flavor from Galaxy, Comet and Citra hops, it’s super crushable and on tap now at both locations. No cans this time – draft only.⁣

We’re sad to say it’s Kelly’s last week with us as Tap Room Manager, as she’s relocating back to the east coast to be closer to her family. We’ll miss her and the energy she’s brought to our place in the short time she’s been with us. She’ll be with us until Friday, so you have multiple opportunities to stop by and wish her well for whatever life adventures await. ...

It’s Halloween, which means we get to share our spooky “ghost” story! Back in 2014, when we were doing construction, something triggered our alarm at the Bistro at 1:53 am. Back then, our two rooms weren’t connected yet. The motion detector went off in one room, at the exact time an image of a tall, slender man was caught in the other room. We have footage of our employees closing up on time the night before, and no one recognized this person.
In the 11 years we’ve been in that space, there’s been more than a few odd things. But whoever our ghost is, he’s quite shy and harmless—maybe a hop farmer from the past just checking in?

Starting at 3pm and until we sell out, we’ll feature Grilled Chicken Clubs at the Tap Room & Brewery location on 212th St. Looks like it’ll be a mostly dry day – take advantage of it while you can. ...

It's the perfect chilly fall weather for our melty grilled cheese sandwich and a cup of warm tomato soup! ...

Did you know we smoke our own meats? Sample our house-smoked roast beef on a Kenwich this afternoon at The Tap Room & Brewery. Starts at 3pm, until sell-out. ...

This afternoon’s Grill at The Tap Room & Brewery features Pozole Verde with Grilled Chicken and Taquito. $10 starting and on at open ‘till sellout.⁣

We also have cans of our Nine, Nine, Nine Wet-Hopped Pilsner in stock.⁣

See you later for another beautiful fall afternoon and, hopefully a Mariners win!

𝗡𝗶𝗻𝗲, 𝗡𝗶𝗻𝗲, 𝗡𝗶𝗻𝗲 𝗪𝗲𝘁-𝗛𝗼𝗽𝗽𝗲𝗱 𝗣𝗶𝗹𝘀𝗻𝗲𝗿: As a follow up to last year’s Nein, Nein, Nein, it’s our annual German-style Pilsner brewed with wet, Sterling hops. We brewed this beer on Nine, Nine (hence the name adjustment) and can’t wait for you to try it. It’s one of our favorites and is on tap now at both locations. Cans coming next week.⁣

Also, at The Tap Room & Brewery on 212th St., this afternoon’s grill features a Smokey Beef Swiss & Onion French Dip. $10 and served with a side of Dilly Potato Salad, starting at 3pm until sellout. The sun should be out this afternoon, so it’ll be a great time to sit outside and enjoy a Fresh Hop Pilsner and sandwich.

The first home game of the season for T-Birds hockey kicks off tonight. Join us at The Bistro & Beer Garden beforehand for drinks and eats. As we've done in the past, we'll have a special events menu to help get you to the game on time.⁣

Also, a heads up for The Tap Room & Brewery. We'll be open today as usual at 2pm, then closing at 4pm for a private event.
