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.
