Pint Defiance Celebrating Two Year Anniversary & You’re Invited

Pint Defiance Specialty Beers & Taproom is about to celebrate its second anniversary and you are invited to enjoy the festivities on Saturday, September 13th. Among other treats, the event includes a special anniversary beer brewed by Stoup Brewing specially for and with Pint Defiance for the occasion.

Any respectable beer hunter in the 253 area code probably knows about Pint Defiance, but those in the 206 and 425 might not be aware. When it opened two years ago, Pint Defiance proved its point: this part of West Tacoma, near Fircrest and University Place, and now conveniently close to Narrows Brewing, was ready and able to support a specialty beer joint.

The decision to be a 21+ establishment means that Pint Defiance can offer beers on tap to serve by the pint. To go, Pint Defiance provides growler fills and 50 feat (16 cooler doors) of bottled and canned beer, cider, and mead.

“Pint Defiance has a birthday coming up, and it’s been a whirlwind two years,” says Barry Watson, the owner and mastermind behind Pint Defiance. “We’ve had a lot of fun making friends and sharing our love of beer. We are holding our 2nd anniversary party on September 13 and we want to celebrate with the people who got us here: you!”

“An all-day festivity is in the works, with the central theme being…what else?… great beer,” says Barry. “We’ve been squirrelling away some special kegs, and have an awesome tap lineup in the works, including a 2nd Anniversary IPA brewed for Pint Defiance by Stoup Brewery (details below), Barry’s Beer Camp “No Sleep ‘Till Chico” Coffee Vanilla Porter, brews from the some favorites—Elysian, Almanac, Dogfish Head—rarities, and more!”

Join Pint Defiance on Saturday, September 13th, starting at 11:00am for a day of fun, giveaways, and awesome beers.
