Tacoma Gets A New MicroBrewery

A new Brewery is coming to Tacoma. Wingman Brewery just got their license approved and will soon be filling our glasses with some tasty sounding brews.

From KOMO News:
"It was good to hear that news today," said Ken Thoburn, one of the owners. Thoburn said he and fellow owners Derrick Moyer, Daniel Heath and Jason Sabol have been working for more than a year to get licensed and secure a location.

The owners have backgrounds in brewing, but this will be their first venture into the industry.

Now they are free to begin brewing at their production-only location at 1727 Fawcett Ave.

Thoburn said they'll begin brewing very soon, and hope to have their beers available in Tacoma bars and restaurants by the end of March or beginning of April.
I've also been following them on Facebook. I am anxiously looking forward to trying their beers!

As a side note, as soon as I return from a month long business trip to California, I hope to brew my own first batch. I have all the equipment!

April 9th is the planned brew date. Stay tuned!
