Peaks and Pints Hop Roast Coffee Beer Festival

“Tamocha?” asked the U.S. Census Bureau. “No, Tacoma,” Peaks and Pints replied. “Tamocha? The U.S. Census Bureau asked again. “No, Ta-co-ma,” we annunciated. “Tamocha?” again, the Bureau asked. “Yes, Tamocha. Peaks and Pints is located in Tamocha, Washington,” we reluctantly agreed. That phone conversation confirmed we needed to host a craft coffee beer festival. Peaks and Pints will celebrate the unification of coffee and beer when we present our Hop Roast Coffee Beer Festival today from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. at our little lodge in Tacoma’s Proctor District.
