Housed in the former Sluggo Music space, Sluggo Brewing operates on a 1-barrel electric system. The Tacoma brewery began with three 1-barel fermenters, but has since installed two 2 -barrel fermenters. The taproom is outfitted in thrift-store furniture; kids are welcome, as are dogs. No food is served, but Half Pint Pizza delivers.
