Proctor Presents: Peaks and Pints and Envy

The Proctor District in the North End is alive and shining with holiday shoppers. If this holiday season is any measure, this budding urban village may soon be where everyone wants to live. Peaks and Pints Proctor Presents pairs a Proctor District shop with one of our gift-worthy craft beers. …

She would look great in this C+D+M coat, available at Envy boutique in Tacoma’s Proctor District.


Fantastic designer labels with excellent flattering cuts in some of the newest and hottest styles and pattern trends is what one will find at Envy, a Proctor District boutique fully stocked with women’s clothing and accessories. Accessories, ah yes. Check out the $16 sunglasses rack. In one corner are hand creams from Naturally European and Aromas Artesanales De Antique; necklaces dangle like icicles in the other corner. You’ll drool over the über-cool handbags, especially the Diophy plaid handbag. Blouses from Dex, Jess & Jane, ILLA ILLA (with a fun scarf), Sweet Lola, Umgee, Nostalgia, C+D+M and many others designers. Best of all, the price tags will have you smiling all the way to the Proctor Umpqua Bank. 3813 N 26th St, Tacoma, 253.761.5531

Peaks and Pints has packaged a 2017 Fremont B-Bomb with two snifter glasses for your Christmas Eve.

Peaks and Pints

Today’s Peaks and Pints Package Present is a 22oz bottle of Fremont 2017 B-Bomb Bourbon Barrel-Aged Winter Ale and two snifter glasses.

Fremont Brewing’s B-bomb (the B stands for bourbon or barrel, you decide) is a bourbon-barrel-aged winter beer released annually on B-Bomb Friday, the day after Thanksgiving. Peaks and Pints has several 2017 editions of B-Bomb (13%), which have mellowed out to absolute deliciousness. Last year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 12-year-old American oak bourbon barrels and is a blend of 9, 12, and 24-month old barrel strength Winter Ale for slight bourbon, oak, cacao, leather and dark coffee notes from its extended barrel aging and barrel blending. Each barrel contributes a different note, and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure. 3816 N. 26th St., Tacoma, 253.328.5621
