Airways Brewing Announces New Brewing Facility and Special Beer Release in Celebration of 6th Anniversary

KENT, Wash. (March 10, 2016) – On Thursday, March 10th, Airways Brewing is proud to announce a new, larger brewery and tap room in Kent, as well as the release of its 6th Anniversary Mosaic Pilsner.

“We’re excited to officially unveil our plans to relocate our brewery and tap room to a larger, more visible location in Kent.” said Alex Dittmar, founder and head brewer at Airways Brewing Company. “We considered many options on how and where to grow, but after an exhaustive search, we’re happy to have found a great space in Kent that will allow us to increase our production, as well as provide a better quality experience for our tap room guests.”

Construction on the new, 9,000 square foot space, located on 212th St., has started and is expected to be completed this spring. The new location will replace the original brewery and tap room and will allow for up to a fourfold increase in production, as well as an increase in tap room seating capacity.

In celebration, the 6th Anniversary Mosaic Pilsner is available starting today on draft and in 22 oz. bottles at both Airways locations. Bottles will also start rolling out in the Puget Sound region at select specialty bottle shops and grocery stores. This German-style Pilsner features florally Mosaic hops with flavors and aromas of tropical fruit, citrus, and earthiness, with a wonderfully crisp finish.

“Some people may remember that the Mosaic Pilsner was also last year’s anniversary beer,” said Dittmar. “We liked it so much, and received such an overwhelmingly positive response, that we brought it back. It combines the classic flavors of a German Pilsner with the amazing characteristics of Mosaic, one of my favorite new-age hops.”

In addition to the Mosaic Pilsner, craft beer enthusiasts can pick up the brewery’s flagship Sky Hag IPA and Chocolate Stout in 22-ounce bottles. Pre Flight Pilsner is also available in 16-oz cans. Pints, tasters and growler fills can also be found at the Airways Brewing Tap Room or Airways Brewing Beer & Bistro in downtown Kent.

Additional information, photos, and tasting notes are available upon request. Those interested are encouraged to contact Dione Dittmar at media@airwaysbrewing.com.
