Airways Brewing Has a New Look and New Location

KENT, Wash. (May 26, 2016) –Airways announces new branding, and an update on the relocation of their Kent-based brewery and tap room.

Airways New Look
“Over the past 6 years, a lot has changed. As we get ready to move the brewery and expand production, we’ve spent some time reflecting on where we want to go, and what makes Airways unique in a region that loves airplanes and beer,” said Alex Dittmar, founder and head brewer at Airways Brewing Company.

“The new logo, which you’ll start to see today, reflects our passion for the glamorous era of airline travel. While the airplanes are of course a huge part of that, we also wanted to capture the spirit of the people in the industry. These were innovators in an age before computers, and hard-working crews that worked long hours to make flying a luxury. The new logo pays tribute to their stories and the enduring friendships that have been passed on to us at Airways.”

New Tap Room Location and Expanded Hours Starting June 21th
Construction on the new, 9,000 square foot space, located at 8611 S 212th St. Kent WA, 98031, started in March and is expected to be ready to produce beer in July. This 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.

The original location, on West Valley Hwy and 196th, will be open to the public through Friday, June 17th. The Tap Room will re-open with a soft launch at the new location at 2 pm on June 21th with expanded hours:

Sunday: Closed
Monday: Closed
Tuesday: 2 pm–9 pm
Wednesday: 2 pm–9 pm
Thursday: 2 pm–9 pm
