Looking for a place to warm up for lunch today? Our house smoked French dip with melted fontina and beef jus with a touch of rosemary is a popular choice on these cold days. ...

Resolution Breaker has returned to our taps. This year’s beer blends together some amazingly aromatic Citra, Mosaic & Galaxy hops that are sure to tempt you away from “Dry or Damp January.” 6.5% ABV and flowing into your glasses starting today. ...

Brrr, it’s COLD today! But we have plenty of hearty options to warm you up. Have you tried our new balsamic braised beef short ribs yet? ...

If you didn't see our post yesterday, we have an updated menu at the Bistro! One of our favorite new items—a French dip made with our house smoked roast beef and melted fontina, served with jus made with a touch of rosemary to complement the smoke. It's both tasty and aromatic, the perfect combo for this cold weather. Comes with your choice of hand cut fries or salad. ...

We’ve been working on some menu updates for the past several weeks, and today we’re finally going live. You knew we make our own brats, and smoke our own roast beef and bacon, right? Well, now we have house cured ham to add to the list. Try it on our new ham and brie sandwich with sour cherry spread, or a flatbread with gala apples. We’ve got quite a few other new items to try as well, like balsamic braised short ribs and a French dip sandwich made with our smoked roast beef and rosemary beef jus. Check out our full menu at ...

Our biggest, boldest beer of the year returns for one last hurrah. Final Departure was first brewed ten years ago for the Maya calendar’s end of the world. Obviously, the world didn’t end, even though sometimes over the past couple of years, it’s felt like it. We’re bringing the beer back in its original, 2010 form for what will be the end of the decade-long series.⁣

Roasty, with flavors of chocolate and coffee, it’s a great sipping beer that you can get on draft and in cans at both locations.⁣

Next year: Don’t worry, we’ll have something else to tantalize your winter palate.

Happy holidays to our Mile High Mug Club Members! Please join us on December 20th for a night of food, beer, and friends. We'll be closing the doors at the Tap Room to the public at 5 pm for our annual holiday party. A buffet catered from our Bistro is complimentary for Mug Club Members, and invite a guest (or 2) for $10 to cover food. We'll also be pulling out the last keg of last year's Final Departure Imperial Stout featuring Manifesto Coffee’s Himalayan Blend, along with vanilla bean. RSVPs to [email protected] appreciated so we can plan food. ...

Nervous flyer? Don’t worry, your captain, the Snow Pilot is back. Our annual winter release makes its debut at both locations today. Featuring a base of pale and wheat malt, along with flaked oats, Snow Pilot is generously hopped both in the kettle and post-fermentation with Chinook & Simcoe, for that subtle dash of winter-like fruity pine. 6.5% ABV. Available in cans and on tap.⁣

Note: Do not trust a snowman to fly your plane. He melts under pressure.⁣

You asked for them and we’ve got them. A plethora of “Just in Case” tees just landed at The Tap Room & Brewery on 212th St. Available in a variety of colors and sizes. Get ‘em now for yourself or the Airways lover in your life. ...

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.

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.⁣
