A brewery and a funeral home (turned into a bar) celebrate another year

Thursday, March 20th, you’re encouraged to swing by Airways Brewing’s Taproom (6644 S 196th St, Kent, WA 98032) to congratulate the brewery by buying a pint. Rather than do something crazy (like pulling rare kegs out of the cellar, or releasing a limited edition bottled beer) the brewery will be operating business as usual. But you should stop by if you are in the area.

Finally, The Pine Box (1600 Melrose Ave, Seattle, WA 98122) is celebrating their 2nd Anniversary in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. As an incentive the bar is releasing a limited edition beer, courtesy Bend (Oregon) brewery 10 Barrel Brewing. Doors open at 3pm.
