UPDATED : New date for opening of new taproom is Tues. 6/21.
Kent, Washington’s Airways Brewing Company today shared two important pieces of information. The company has re-branded itself, introducing a new logo. Also, the new Airways Brewing taproom opens on Tuesday, June 21. The new taproom is at the location of the new brewery, which will replace the current brewery on West Valley Highway.
Sky Hag IPA, the brewery’s flagship IPA, pokes fun at acerbic, over-worked, over-flown flight attendants who have outlived their ability to politely interact with the flying public, but Airways recognizes that the airline industry is actually full of really nice and helpful people. The new logo is more reflective of that fact and gives a nod to the hardworking people who makes the skies friendly and safe.
Here’s more information straight from Airways Brewing.
Over the past 6 years, a lot has changed. As we get ready to move the brewery and expand production, we’ve spent some time reflecting on where we want to go, and what makes Airways unique in a region that loves airplanes and beer.
Our new logo, which you’ll start to see today, reflects our founder’s passion for the glamorous era of airline travel. While the airplanes are of course a huge part of that, we also wanted to capture the spirit of the people in the industry. These were innovators in an age before computers, and hard-working crews that worked long hours to make flying a luxury. Our new logo pays tribute to their stories and the enduring friendships that have been passed on to us at Airways.
