2 Beers, 5 Love Locals, and 3 Things To Do

Yesterday, during our rest day, we gave a few shout-outs to those offering help and relief during the self-quarantining and sheltering in place. Peaks & Pints is going to keep the love local alive as this community continues to show why we’re the smallest big city in the state. Be well everyone!


Rainier Growlers will host its weekly Bingo And Brews in the cloud tonight. The South Hill craft beer bar will stream their bingo in a Zoom conference room style from 6-9 p.m. featuring five rounds with Tyler and Mike as the hosts. Ben and crew will hand out bingo cards until 6 p.m. No purchase is necessary, but we dare you not to fill a growler with those Ruse beers they have tapped. Download Zoom from your mobile app store, or at:⁣ zoom.com/download.

Robby and Andrew closed their Edison City Alehouse for a week before they realized life isn’t just endo turns on mountain bikes. As you can tell from their taplist; they live and breathe craft beer. They now offer curbside crowler fills and bottles and cans to go from 1-6 p.m.


United Way Pierce County reminds us all to step up — from donating supplies to volunteering time as food banks, school district and shelters could use the help.

Local journalism has been hit hard. The community closures means less advertising, which pays to keep the printing presses and servers running. You can pry the newspaper from our cold, dead hands (poor choice of words but that’s how we feel about newspapers). Please support local newspapers. They’re vital to keep us informed.


Due to the negative economic impact of COVID-19 and the mandatory shutdowns are having on small businesses, the city of Tacoma will be offering small loans up to $15,000 that require no repayments for a year.
