Fun Facts:

>>> In April of 2018, Gig Harbor Brewing opened a second location in its namesake city. The taproom is located on the water and is 21 and older only. Beer and wine is available, but no food sold on the premises, however great food options are nearby. Brewery operations remain at the Tacoma taproom location.

After an exhaustive search for large enough building space in Gig Harbor, the Gig Harbor Brewery was forced to open in Tacoma’s Nalley Valley. The brewery has 2,500 square feet of warehouse space, with seating for about 30-35 indoors and a sunny brick patio space for outdoor lounging during warm weather. Expect five beers on tap, plus a guest beer and cider.
