The sun is coming out, and we’re almost to Friday! Come take a break with us and try a cup or bowl of smoked brisket chili. ...

Happy New Year! We’re excited for what 2022 will bring and thankful for all of your support over the past year. 2021 wasn’t always the best year, but we did see the return of bar seating, new tanks and expansion announcements. Here’s to the all of the great things 2022 will bring, including the new and improved Super Patio at The Bistro & Beer Garden.⁣

We’re taking New Year’s day off, but will return to normal hours tomorrow, Sunday, January 2nd. We look forward to seeing your smiling faces again.

Thursday Hours: due to the snow, we're going to be opening the Bistro from 1 to 9 today. The Tap Room will remain closed. ...

We are back open at both locations today! Come by the Bistro starting at 11, or the Tap Room at 3. We'll be happy to see you again after our little snow break. (Please note that the Bistro patio is currently freezing cold and covered in snow, so we will not be asking our crew to do outdoor service at this time.) ...

Tuesday: we’re going to go ahead and stay closed again today. With so much ice on the roads we’re not going to ask our employees to risk their safety just to get to work. Plus they’ve all earned some extra paid days off this holiday season! ...

Monday update—It’s icy out there! Thank you to all of the @cityofkent staff that have been out working to clear the main roads. The neighborhoods are still pretty challenging though so we’re going to keep our crew off the roads again today, and see what tomorrow brings. ...

For the safety (and fun) of our crew, we’re just going to stay closed an extra day and let everyone enjoy the snow from home with their families. ...

We stashed away a couple cases of last year's Final Departure Imperial Stout so we could offer them to you this year. The draft is long gone, but you can pick up some cans at The Tap Room & Brewery this afternoon, starting at 3.⁣

These are To Go only and only at The Tap Room & Brewery locationon 212th St.

We’re open most of this week for either on site or to go. A limited amount of cans are available at each location for your holiday enjoyment.⁣

It's a triple can release Friday:⁣

First up, the 2021 Edition of Final Departure Imperial Stout. For this year's end-of-the-year beer, we teamed up with Tacoma's Manifesto Coffee Roasters. Their delicious Himalayan Blend adds a strong coffee presence to the base beer, along with notes of caramel and dates. We also added vanilla bean during the boil to give it additional complexity.⁣

Second, our annual release of Snow Pilot IPA. This hazy adds the piney, fruity flavors & aromas of Chinook and Simcoe - two hops we think work great together for the cooler seasons.⁣

And third, since so many of you have been asking when Jumbo Juice will be back in cans, we cranked out ten cases - just in time for your holiday Jumbo needs.⁣

In addition to cans, all three beers are on tap at both locations.

We’re releasing a couple of new beers this month and the first is this wonderful Dark Lager.⁣

Brewed with German-sourced malts and hops, fermented with our house Bavarian yeast, then lagered for a couple of months, this is a beer shows that dark beers don’t have to be heavy and weigh you down.⁣

Get it, starting today, at both locations. 5.4% ABV⁣

WA Pint Days is back and runs now through Saturday. There’s a new design for this year’s glass, and you can get one of your very own by visiting one of our two locations and ordering a beer in a WA Pint Glass. Keep the glass for an extra $2 on top of the beer price. Or, if you just want to grab a glass, you can purchase one for $5.⁣

They were super popular last year and sold out quickly.⁣

In addition to supporting your local brewery (that’s us), $1 from each glass purchase goes to the Washington Brewer’s Guild – a group we’ve been part of since our early days, which works on behalf of us and other independent breweries in the state.⁣

(Note that prices do not include sales tax)⁣

Oh, what a beautiful sight as we transfer our gorgeous dark ruby lager into its home for the next several months.⁣

We had the pleasure of brewing with the two Dons recently: Don Spencer from Poulsbo’s @valhollbrewing and Don Webb from Seattle’s @oldstovebeer . We got to know these guys back when they were with their former breweries (Silver City and Naked City, respectively). In the tanks now … a wonderfully balanced German-style Bock. But, pack your patience, as this beer won’t be seen again, outside of stainless, until late February, as it needs time to let the magic happen.⁣
