A little over a month ago, Weekly Volcano scribe Joshua Swainston discussed the resurgence of Tacoma's beer legacy, focusing on Pacific Brewing & Malting Company's historical roots in Tacoma, and the brewery's re-opening on Pacific Avenue in downtown Tacoma.

As far back as when Job Carr stirred wort alongside the banks of Commencement Bay, our city has had a love affair with beer. It is only natural that with a mix of working class Scandinavians, Austria/Hungarians and Germans that someone (if not everyone) would be mixing their own home brew.

In pre-prohibition Tacoma, the brewery district housed Heidelberg, Milwaukee and Pacific Brewing and Malting companies. Today, we have new local favorites such as Tacoma Brewing Company, Narrows Brewing and Wingman Brewers creating flavorful brews and bringing beer pride to the City of Destiny - and more are on the horizon.

Read the full story here, then go drink Pacific Brewing & Malting Company beers tomorrow, beginning at 1 p.m.  That's right, after many months of delays due to permitting issues, Pacific Brewing and Malting will finally swing open its big doors, and serve beer as it did over a 100 years ago.

PACIFIC BREWING AND MALTING CO., opens 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 20, 610 Pacific Ave., Tacoma, 253.442.0596
