My mom and I went wedding dress shopping a couple weeks ago and while we were driving down the road in semi-industrial Kent, Washington when mom said, “Oh look, brewery and tap room.”
I immediately piped up with, “Let’s go!” I don’t really think she was expecting this to be my answer. But why would we pass it up? I mean, really?!
Turns out it was Airways Brewing which I had heard quite lovely things about via the beer blogosphere.
I debated ordering a sampler briefly but just decided to order a pint of Sky Hag, their double IPA. Smelled amazing. Tasted amazing. Certified Honest Pint Purveyor (my mom actually bought Forrest one of their imperial pint glasses).
The owner and all the other customers sitting around the bar were really friendly. It was quite fun to chat with everyone (they were all quite astounded that a girl from Tacoma would choose to move to a town of less than 650 people). Definitely a recommended stop if you happen to be wondering around east of I-5 between Tacoma and Seattle.
