Engine House No. 9 (611 N. Pine St., Tacoma) will host a Trinity Brewing Night with five on tap and three different brews in bottles, beginning at 6 p.m. Trinity head brewer and owner Jason Yester will be in the firehouse.


Doyle's Public House (208 Saint Helens Ave., Tacoma) has some delectable sounding specials in store launching this month, including Panzanella, an Italian bread salad consisting of croutons, grape tomatoes, onion and basil topped with fresh garlic and Italian seasoned vinaigrette. They're also unleashing a Spicy, Salty, Italian Sandwich and a Cheeseburger Shepard's Pie.


Since 1992, Chicago brewery Goose Island's Bourbon County Stout has grown from a single beer to a family of brews, each weighty, boozy and aged in whiskey barrels. The fancy-ass variants are probably the most widely hyped releases of the year, and they drive otherwise reasonable, neighborly people into an alarming acquisitive frenzy. This year's Bourbon County Stout still kicks serious ass. Boasting a 13.8 percent ABV - high but certainly not the 15.1 percent of 2012 - there's tons of vanilla, bourbon (duh!), oak, dark chocolate, coffee, dark fruits with emphasis on cherry, as well as molasses and licorice. Maxwell's Speakeasy and Lounge (454 Saint Helens Ave., Tacoma) is hosting "A Night with Goose Island Beer Company" at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 25. The $80 seat price includes a dinner and brew pairing through five courses including the Bourbon County Stout paired with a braised short rib dish and the Ten Hills Pale Ale complementing Maxwell's "Chicago Dog" ravioli. Reservations are required and space is limited. Call 253.683.4115 to nab your seat.
