South Sound breweries Halloween prefunk

Ron Swarner



Halloween is finally here! Well, technically, it’s not here until Monday, but if a holiday the magnitude of Halloween falls on a Monday, it becomes the province of the entire preceding weekend. This year, Peaks and Pints will be treat-or-treating with a pillowcase, loading it with craft beer from local breweries. Speaking of local breweries, several have Halloween prefunk parties tonight. Here are a few South Sound brewery happenings:

CASCADIA HOMEBREW AND BREWING COMPANY: The downtown Olympia homebrew shop and brewery has collaborated with Olympia hip-hop group Syncopated Knock on Hip Hop Pale Ale, a Belgian style pale infused with rose hips and coriander, “elegant as a newborn gazelle.” Tap a sip during the brewery’s Halloween get-together at 7 p.m. featuring live music, including their collaborators.

NARROWS BREWING COMPANY: The waterfront brewery hosts a Halloween costume party from 5-11 p.m. Expect prizes for best costumes, games, snacks and “spooky-good brews.”

ODD OTTER BREWING COMPANY: “Brews and Boos” is the title of the Tacoma Brewery’s Halloween spooktacular, featuring costume contest with prizes, carved pumpkin award ceremony, DJs., Ottermelon bottles and $1 off growler fills.

PACIFIC BREWING & MALTING CO.: At 8 p.m., the downtown Tacoma brewery will host Greg Lowe, Jim Gowin, Steve Holmes, Jordon Job and Jared Bogi, or better known as the funky rock band Swallow.
