Tie dye, LSD, free love, peace protests, music and meditation. Five decades ago, San Francisco became the center of counterculture, and Peaks and Pints will celebrate the Summer of Love with Tacoma breweries from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. today. Tacoma breweries brewed special craft beers inspired by their favorite hippie songs of 1967 and we’re pouring them from our Western red cedar tap log while our jukebox pumps out what was heard squealing out windows from Hashbury lofts and bouncing out of radios in Carnaby Street clothing shops back during that special bohemian summer. Narrows Brewing Company offers their hazy IPA take on “Lucy In The Sky with Diamonds” titled “Tangerine Trees and Marmalade Skies.” The brewers at Wingman Brewers are happy together so it only makes sense they’ll be brewing “Hoppy Together” double IPA. Dystopian State Brewing has flowers behind their ears and “Tune In, Turn On and Drop Outer Gods” saison in a keg. Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. trips out with “White Rabbit,” a witbier. Odd Otter Brewing Company brewed a white IPA called Summer Ekuanot — heavy on Australian hops, man. Tacoma Brewing Co. is about “Purple Haze” — a New England style IPA with blackberries and blueberries. Join our full day of counter-culture brews fueled by music — far and away the thing that most baffled the straights and illuminated the believers during the Summer of Love.
