The Big Beer Fest at Tacoma Brewing

big beer fest fb bannerIf you were at The Big Beer Fest last year, then you know what this is about. People are still talking about our Cascade Quad and Four Banger! If you happened to miss it, it was a festival of BIG BEERS – nothing under 9%.

This year, we are continuing this great tradition by putting together a list of triple IPAs, quadruple IPAs, barleywines, and big stouts.

Don’t come on an empty stomach! Outside food is welcome – we have menus for Puget Sound Pizza and Maxwell’s Restaurant + Lounge, plus The Rolling Crust pizza guy will be here!

The tap list:
– Matt’s Barleywine
– Citra Kick Barleywine/Triple IPA
– Simcoe Kick Triple IPA
– Noble Barleywine/Triple IPA
– Cascade Quad (quadruple IPA)
– Licorice Stout
– “Wacked” Stout (Orange/chocolate)
– Nitro Vanilla Stout
– Ashen Stout (aged on ash wood)

We were hoping to offer a Triple Bock, but German ales being what they are, it is running a few weeks late. Look for it in the near future! :)

What: The Big Beer Fest at Tacoma Brewing Company
When: Saturday, March 15th, 2-9pm

Tacoma Brewing Company Announces “10% For Tacoma” Program to Benefit Community

efn logo

Tacoma Brewing Company is proud to call Tacoma home. Its rich heritage inspires us, and community support sustains us. For this, we return the favor by donating a full 10% of Thursday taproom beer sales to local charities.

Beginning Thursday, March 6th – coinciding with Tacoma Beer Week – and every Thursday through June, the Emergency Food Network will be the featured organization in the “10% For Tacoma” program. Then, starting in July, a new non-profit partner will be selected on a quarterly basis.

This commitment allows Tacoma Brewing Co. to elevate the financial assistance we can provide to local nonprofits that support us by making Tacoma a better place to live.

Besides the cash donations raised through the “10% For Tacoma” program, Tacoma Brewing Co. also donates beer to many non-profit organizations’ fundraising efforts and provides merchandise for charity auctions on an ongoing basis. “Beer is fun and gets people in the giving mood,” says Morgan Alexander, Tacoma Brewing Co. owner, “and we’re glad to participate knowing that our beer can help the success of community organizations.”

Spaces are still available for the Tacoma Brewing Co. “10% For Tacoma” program. Organizations must be a tax-designated charity or registered non-profit.

What:
“10% For Tacoma” tap nights at Tacoma Brewing Co.

When:
Every Thursday, starting March 6th.
