It is my humble opinion that the best beer in the land of Tacoma, hands down, is the Point Defiance IPA brewed by Tacoma suds and grub icon, Harmon Brewery and Restaurant. And I speak from experience! I have tried all the lovely Harmon brews, but Point Defiance IPA still rocks the house. Check out this professionally written, culinary description (from the Harmon website):
POINT DEFIANCE IPA
Four types of malted barley, including a specially roasted Belgium barley make up the grain bill. Centennial, Sterling, and Amarillo hops provide the big hoppy flavor. Double dry-hopped, once with raw Centennial hops and once with raw Amarillo hops present this beer's huge hop aroma.
Isn’t that a pretty description? My take: strong, full, yummy. And the name of this beer, is Tacoma magic. Even better? You can get this beer to go! Check out the “growler” option in a big ol’ moonshine style jug!
My husband is hosting and organizing a local golf outing at Chambers Bay for his Bellevue buddies. Rick is going to have Point Defiance IPA as a treat for his golfers and I am going to score him a Gritty Tacoman T-shirt for a prize giveaway. Golf? Beer? Gritty Tacoman T-shirt? Throw in a little sunshine, crisp blue sky, and sparkling bay water, hey, there’s nothing better!
Enjoy the suds and sparkling sunshine to come Tacoma!
