Proctor Presents: Peaks and Pints and Fleet Feet Sports

You don’t have to suffer through traffic and trudge through giant mall parking lots to find great gifts. Tacoma’s Proctor District has a plethora of holiday gift ideas. Plus, buying local not only feels great, it is also better for the region. Here are today’s Peaks and Pints Proctor Presents. …

Peaks and Pints suggests a bottle of Stone Brewing Xocoveza Charred Mocha Stout and two snifter glasses as a gift idea.

Peaks and Pints

Today’s Peaks and Pints Package Present is a 500ml bottle of Stone Brewing Xocoveza Charred and two snifter glasses.

Peaks and Pints is a fan of Stone Brewing’s Xocoveza Mocha Stout. It’s a craft beer that is unique and has an intriguing array of spices to go along with a soft chili pepper presence. The entire package works well from start to finish. Xocoveza Charred is theoretically the same base beer, but it’s rested in former bourbon barrels for a good bit of time for even more complexity and flavor intensity, layering additional caramel-like and vanilla flavors on top of those already present. Aromas of rich coffee and dark chocolate are followed by nutmeg and cinnamon. A lush, heavy mouthfeel laden with charred oak and toffee engulfs the palate on the first sip. Lingering pasilla pepper and soft oak flavors persist through an exceptionally long finish in this intensely rich and satisfying beer. $24.99, 3816 N. 26th, Tacoma, 253.328.5621

Fleet Feet Sports

For many people, running is more than just a hobby — it’s a full-on lifestyle. Whether they’re exploring their city on foot, going steady on the trail, doing sprints on the track or even just logging some miles on a treadmill, running is a big part of their weekly schedule. Fleet Feet Sports opened Oct. 11, 2012, next door to Chalet Bowl in Tacoma’s Proctor District. Although it carries all the shoes and running apparel, runners are the kind of people who are happy to get socks as presents. Fleet Feet carries several lines of running socks, but Balega facilitates superior running performance with no-slip socks that are designed to provide optimal blood circulation and energy flow. Fleet Feet Bonus: Buy three pairs of Balega socks, receive one pair free. Double Bonus: Fleet Feet will throw in a free $25 gift card with every $100 gift card purchased. 3812 N. 26th St., Tacoma, 253.272.8890
