Airways Brewing Celebrates Completion of Expanded Tap Room

Kent, Wash. (06/25/11) – Airways Brewing Company, Kent’s Brewery, celebrates the completion of its Tap Room expansion on Saturday, July 9th with a special celebration.

“We’re finally done with the tap room expansion, albeit about two months later than planned, so we decided to celebrate with extended hours and some special beers,” says Airways founder and head brewer, Alex Dittmar.

In addition to the standard lineup, the special beers on tap on July 9th include:
Midnight Departure CDA – brewed for the first time since last summer.
Tickel Your Zwickel – German Unfiltered Lager
Maylani’s Tropical Stout – Chocolate Coconut Stout
Über Hag – Sky Hag IPA™ aged in Heaven Hills Bourbon Barrels

We’ll also have the new beer engine in place, so we’ll hook up a firkin of something good to that as well,” says Dittmar. The celebration runs from 1 p.m. – 9 p.m., and includes special food items for sale from Airways neighbor, Yukon Grill.
