That’s right! BIG BEERS, Big in Flavor and Big in Character. This brewery invitation only event is being held to bring together those that are passionate about craft beer, and to further build community while promoting this amazing beverage in the South Sound. This new event will surely be one to look forward to annually.

The YWCA Pierce County touches the lives of over 10,000 women, men and children annually seeking safety through this bevy of services. Support from the community helps the YWCA support its clients in creating lives free of violence and full of hope

This is the first year for this event. Featured will be about 20 breweries. Most of the beers will be over 10 percent and some will be up to 18 percent. This beer tasting event has been split into 2 sessions. Mini is the official sponsor and they are planning to turn a Mini into a beer tap. You'll need to bring your camera to take pictures of the cars. Live music. Big brews in Tacoma on the Thea Foss waterway. The 11th street bridge currently under renovation should be open by the 16th.
