We will be putting 5, “253” brewed beers on tap for the Competition. These beers are not under any specific beer style. This is a popularity contest and not a typical categorical beer competition. The 5 beers will come in 4 oz. Flight style glassware. The purchase price will be $7 for the beers and the judge’s packet. Each purchase will include a judge’s packet and a person can judge the competition as many times as they would like. There is also one kicker to this event, on the day of the 11th and the reveal date of the winner each pint sold of the beers in the competition will count as one vote in the popularity contest. I am also working with the contestants to be able to hand out take home pints to the judges on the day the pints count as votes. This is just a fun way to find out which 253 beer rules the land. The contestants are as follows, Pacific Brewery 1897 Pale Lager, 7 Seas Balls Deep, Tacoma Brewery Broken Window IPA, Engine House #9 IPA and an Odd Otter Brewery entry.
Tacoma Beer Week begins Sunday, Aug. 6, and what better way to celebrate than by helping others. With cans. It may be warm and sunny outside, but people are still starving right in our neighborhoods. Peaks and Pints, 7 Seas Brewing, Silver City Brewery, No-Li Brewhouse, Bale Breaker Brewing Co., Fish Tale Ales and Iron Horse Brewery host Tacoma Beer Week 2017 Cans For A Cause, a week-long can food drive in support of the Rescue Mission. Beginning Aug. 6, Peaks and Pints will host Rescue Mission canned food bins awarding a raffle ticket for every five cans. Then, at 5 p.m., Friday, Aug 11, Cans For A Cause throws on a party hat, takes more can donations, ices up craft beer cans from the aforementioned breweries, and awards raffle prizes. We know what you're thinking: What might be an appropriate canned food for Tacoma Beer Week 2017 Cans For A Cause? Canned vegetables are always high on the wish lists. That doesn't mean they have to be boring. Corn! Peppers! Onions! Seasoning! It's fiesta time! Beans, beans and more beans. Refried. Black. Pinto. Canned. Dried. Protein. Fiber. Tasty. You can donate a case to equal the price of fast-service DIY nachos. Cheese sauce. It's the bean's best amigo, and available in almost as many flavors: cheddar, Ragu Double Cheddar, zesty, Monterey Jack, nacho. In all seriousness, food banks have been struggling. Silly as these suggestions may be, they're a start. Rescue Mission need nonperishables that aren't packaged in glass and haven't been opened. Sources of protein and vegetables are always needed. Don't just donate the crap that's been sitting in your cabinets that you won't eat. No one wants your 3-year-old can of pumpkin-pie filling any more than you do. Make sure what you're donating hasn't expired and is something you'd be willing to eat. TACOMA BEER WEEK: CANS FOR A CAUSE, donate Aug. 6-11, party at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Tacoma, every five cans equals one raffle ticket.
Combining intriguing flavors to our flag ship beers! Every day of the week a new featured beer and flavor will be combined to celebrate Tacoma Beer Week! Stay tuned for list!
The craft beer lost weekend is a terrific thing. It’s the sort of perk that makes up for bottle shop long hours and destroyed hands, at least for a few days. But times have changed since the halcyon hedonism of yore, when Hunter S. Thompson — the most celebrated master of the fine art of spending a spell in a faraway locale, imbibing and debauching — was staggering around, weaving his half-remembered adventures into fabulist prose. Nowadays, no one in his or her right mind jumps from brewery to brewery without an Uber ride. There’s a palpable button-down mentality that frowns on overindulgence. Peaks and Pints prefers zippers. With Tacoma Beer Week 2017 going down Aug. 6-12, Peaks and Pints thinks its time to rehabilitate the lost weekend as art form, but condense it down to a few hours. We’ll host five breweries along the Columbia Gorge for a night of imbibing and debauching beginning at 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 6. Walking Man Brewing, Backwoods Brewing Company, Everybody's Brewing, pFriem Family Brewers and Double Mountain Brewery & Taproom will pour two of their craft to kick off the week-long craft beer celebration in the greater Tacoma area. For more information on the five Columbia River Gorge breweries, visit: http://bit.ly/PeaksandPintsTacomaBeerWeek TACOMA BEER WEEK: BREWED IN THE GORGE, 6 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 6, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover

The Hopnificent Seven, a remake of the classic 1960 Western (itself a remake of the 1954 Japanese film The Seven Samurai ) comes with an all-star cast, a wide-ranging arsenal of hops and some funny lines. Directed by Mike Bosold, an award-wining shorts storyteller, it’s a tale of primary hop additions and dry-hopping during Tacoma Beer Week. When roughians invade the mountain-themed Peaks and Pints bottle shop, taproom and restaurant of Basecamp Proctor, leaving just sours and malt heavy craft beers in their wake, Click Wholesale Distributing brings in hop hunter Pacific Brewing and Malting Co. to take the roughians out and replenish the lodge with hop-heavy hitters. But Pacific Brewing needs help, so they round up a diverse group of hopslingers (pFriem Family Brewers, Double Mountain Brewery, Fort George Brewery, Pike Brewing, Ecliptic Brewing and Reuben’s Brews). While it isn’t always clear why these craft breweries are risking their tanks to help the people of Basecamp Proctor, their journey, and the ultimate hop throwdown, makes for enjoyable drinking. THE HOPNIFICENT SEVEN, 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 7, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover.

“It’s the water.” No matter if you’re a beer drinker or not, you’re likely familiar with the famed Olympia Beer motto of yesteryear. Whether describing the easy-to-drink suds that helped make the town famous, the Bud Inlet that helps give it character and beauty, the artesian wells that pump vitality into downtown, or simply the constant drizzle, there’s a reason “It’s the water,” has outlived production of the iconic beer it was coined to sell. After all these years, it’s still the water. And Thurston County’s beer roots run as deep as its famous artesian wells. In 1896 successful Montana brewer Leopold Schmidt opened the Capital Brewery after discovering the famous artesian water was ideal for brewing beer. Originally housed in a stackhouse in Tumwater, and eventually renamed Olympia Brewery, it was a significant player in the region’s sudsy brew movement. The brewery slogged through Prohibition during the early 20th century and ownership changes 50 years later. The brewery closed in 2003 when its parent company shuttered the Tumwater plant and moved the production operation to Irwindale, California. In 1993, Crayne and Mary Horton led a dozen Thurston County investors in opening Fish Brewing Company, South Sound’s first craft brewery. It wasn’t until 15 years or so later that several Thurston County craft breweries followed Fish’s lead. Peaks and Pints will salute the craft breweries and cidery of Thurston County during the 2017 Tacoma Beer Week. Wednesday, Aug. 9 we welcome Fish Brewing, Three Magnets Brewing, Top Rung Brewing, Matchless Brewing, Triceratops Brewing, O-Town Brewing and Whitewood Cider. The brewers and staff from the breweries will be in the house with two kegs each. It might be all about the water, but these folks know how to use it. TACOMA BEER WEEK: THURSTON COUNTY CRAFT BOUNTY, 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 9, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover.

Growing up surrounded by vineyards and winemakers, Adam Firestone (of Firestone Vineyard) always had an interest in combining the family business with beer making. He found the perfect business partner in his brother-in-law, David Walker, and the two founded Firestone Walker Brewing Company in 1996. In addition to winning gobs of medals for individual brews, these obnoxiously talented brewers from Paso Robles, California, often take home the major hardware at competitions such as the Great American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup — titles such as “Brewery of the Year” or “Brewer of the Year.” Peaks and Pints would be hard-pressed to think of a more deservedly decorated outfit to host during Tacoma Beer Week … on National S’mores Day! In addition to our house s’mores dessert jars from Tacoma baker Auntie B’s, we’ll sip decadent Firestone Walker treats such as Nitro Merlin milk stout, 100% bourbon barrel aged Velvet Merkin imperial oatmeal stout, Sucaba barleywine, Stickee Monkey strong ale, Bravo barrel aged imperial brown ale, plus Leo v. Ursus: Adversus imperial IPA and other craft beers from the California brewery. TACOMA BEER WEEK: NATIONAL S’MORES DAY WITH FIRESTONE WALKER, 6 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 10, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma no cover.
Denver’s true heavy metal brewery has been turning out awesome mixed culture and sour beers since Summer Solstice of 2011.

Join us Thursday, August 10th, from 5 to 7p as we dedicate a night to metal, oak, and the dark arts of brewing. We will be tapping up some rad brews from TRVE, including Buried Sun Mixed Culture French Farmhouse, Solid Hex Watermelon Saison, Cured Mixed Culture Pale Ale, and Possession No Coast Hoppy Saison. No goat sacrifices necessary to get your claws around some awesome brews on this auspicious night. Don’t miss it or the dark lord will curse you.

Tie dye, LSD, free love, peace protests, music and meditation. Five decades ago, San Francisco became the center of counterculture, and Peaks and Pints will celebrate the Summer of Love with Tacoma breweries Saturday, Aug. 12, one of many special events we have planned during Tacoma Beer Week Aug. 6-12, 2017. Tacoma breweries will brew a special beer inspired by their favorite hippie songs of 1967 and we’ll pour them from our Western red cedar tap log while our jukebox pumps out what was heard squealing out windows from Hashbury lofts and bouncing out of radios in Carnaby Street clothing shops back during that special bohemian summer. Narrows Brewing Company will brew their take on “Lucy In The Sky with Diamonds.” The brewers at Wingman Brewers are happy together so it only makes sense they’ll be brewing “Hoppy Together.” What will Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. brew? What will Tacoma Brewing Co. create? Several other Tacoma breweries will also join our full day of counter-culture brews fueled by music — far and away the thing that most baffled the straights and illuminated the believers during the Summer of Love. A specific taplist will follow soon. TACOMA SUMMER OF LOVE CRAFT BEER FESTIVAL, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 12, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover.
