Peaks and Pints Coffee Beer Fest lineup and local events


Peaks and Pints Coffee Beer Fest lineup and local events


Friday, Nov. 16, 2018 — Lisa Bonet turns 51 today

Peaks and Pints Weather Guy has today’s weather for Bandera Mountain, Washington.

Today’s Morning Foam was compiled while watching rapper Vince Staples’ video for “Fun,” because it sports a concept so creative that we can show it to anyone — including those doofuses who still think there’s nothing to love about rap.

Best part of waking up …

Every brewery pulls out all the holiday festivus at the Winter Beer Festival in Seattle.


The 14th Annual Winter Beer Festival will take place Friday, Nov. 30 and Saturday, Dec. 1, at Hangar 30 at Magnuson Park in the Sand Point neighborhood of Seattle. This Washington Brewers Guild tasting event will feature 53 statewide breweries pouring 170 holiday season creations. The beer lineup will include dark malty stouts, robust winter warmers, rich barrel-aged gems, coffee beers, chocolate brews and more. Click here for the Winter Beer Festival’s beer list.

Can Kona Brewing save Craft Brew Alliance? The Kona Brewing portion of Craft Brew Alliance‘s Kona Plus growth strategy looks like a resounding success, with depletions of the Hawaiian-based beer surging 9 percent in the third quarter. Yet because much of the rest of its portfolio is underperforming, net sales fell 6.6 percent to $52.9 million, and total depletions were down 1 percent.

Lompoc Brewing always does the holiday/winter seasonals right and this year will be releasing eight festive beers at a party Monday, Nov. 26 at Lompoc Sidebar, 3901 N Williams Ave. The beers will go on tap at Oaks Bottom and 5th Quadrant on Tuesday, Nov. 27. One of the beers, C-Sons Greetings, will also be released in 22-oz. bottles, which will be available at the release party.

DRUNK HISTORY — THE UFO EDITION, Broken Spoke: Oh man, Peaks and Pints loves that stuff. Massive conspiracy theory, aliens, cover-ups, lizard people from the 5th dimension walking among us, the X-Files times a thousand. Brilliant. All David Icke meets 1995’s “V” miniseries meets wayward once-brilliant Ph.Ds wandering around Arizona and/or Nevada desert, searching for clues and bunkers and spacecraft wreckage and secret codes written on tablets of transparent zirconium. We believe every word. And look! The Broken Spoke is hosting a night of local UFO stories tonight. Righteous. 6:30-8:30 p.m., 1014 Martin Luther King Junior Way, Tacoma

POPS SPOILER AND HIS DEADBEATS, The Valley: Pops Spoiler and his Deadbeats play blue collar rock and roll in the tradition of trash rock legends like the Sonics and the Raunch Hands. Stop by The Valley tonight to hear trash rock soaked with beer, good humor, monsters, ladies, food, practical advice and a commitment to low brow entertainment. Fregoli Disorder and Robert Stevens & The One Armed Man open. 8 p.m., 1206 Puyallup Ave., Tacoma

LAURA VEIRS, Alma Mater: Raised in Colorado, Laura Veirs put out a debut self-titled album in 1999, recorded live with just her and her guitar. Her stature grew over the following years and nine albums, and two years ago, she sang with Neko Case and k.d. lang on the Case/Lang/Veirs album. Her sound has been described as chamber folk, which covers the orchestral elements. Whitney Ballen and Mike Dumovich open. 8 p.m., 1322 Fawcett Ave., Tacoma

BEETLEJUICE, Blue Mouse Theatre: Barbara (Geena Davis) and Adam Maitland (Alec Baldwin) are small-town residents who die in a car accident. They appear back at their house and find a copy of “Handbook for the Recently Deceased,” which leads them to a consultation with a case worker on how to reach the afterlife. Back on Earth, a bougie cosmopolitan couple (Jeffrey Jones and Catherine O’Hara) and their very goth daughter (Winona Ryder) buy the Maitlands’ house and plan to turn it into a chic rural getaway. After unsuccessfully attempting to scare the new occupants away from their happy home themselves, the Maitlands enlist the services of a freelance “ghost with the most,” Betelgeuse (a scenery-chewing Michael Keaton). But you probably knew all that already, right? 10 p.m., 2611 N. Proctor St., Tacoma
