Updated Wednesday, September 17, 2014: We just received word that Pacific Brewing & Malting will open this Saturday, September 20. The tasting room will open at 1:00 and stay open into the evening (maybe as late as 10:00 or 11:00). This new brewery and tasting room is located in downtown Tacoma at 610 Pacific Avenue. Map.
Original story published on June 9, 2014: Saturday afternoon I stopped by Pacific Brewing & Malting Company, the soon-to-be open brewery in downtown Tacoma, to check-in and get a status update. The short version, owner/brewer Steve Navarro hopes to open the taproom sometime around the end of July or the beginning of August, though he hesitates to make any promises at this point.
