In addition to our six flagship Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. beers listed below, we are constantly brewing something new. At any given time, roughly half of our taproom lineup consists of seasonal and limited edition beers.

Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. 1897 Pale Lager

1897 PALE LAGER

Style: Lager – Pale
ABV: 5%
IBU: 20

Description: An all-malt, premium Pale American Lager and a modern tribute to the original Pacific Beer. Both delicious and refreshing, it is the craft beer alternative to mass market lagers. 1897 Pale Lager is named after the year Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. was originally established in Downtown Tacoma

Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. Dirty Skoog IPA

DIRTY SKOOG DOUBLE IPA

Style: IPA – American
ABV: 8.1%
IBU: 85

Description: Dirty Skoog is a medium bodied double IPA with a crisp and refreshing bitter character perfectly balanced with malt character. Dirty Skoog IPA is named after The Skoog Saloon, a blind pig speakeasy that is rumored to have operated somewhere in Old Tacoma during Prohibition. We’d like to think it still exists.

Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. Prairie Line IPA

PRAIRIE LINE IPA

Style: IPA – American
ABV: 6%
IBU: 82

Description: In 1864, President Lincoln signed legislation which chartered the Northern Pacific Railroad to connect the Great Lakes to the Puget Sound. Lines of the Northern Pacific included the Prairie Line, a stretch of track that served Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. back in the day. The name refers to the “burnt prairie” route across the Nisqually Delta from Tenino to Tacoma. Prairie Line IPA features Citra and Mosaic hops. It is light-bodied and a very drinkable 6% with nice aroma of tropical and citrus fruits including tangerine, mango and melon. Finishes dry and clean with a mild bitterness.

Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. Potomac Citra Pale Ale

POTOMAC CITRA PALE

Style: Pale Ale – American
ABV: 6%
IBU: 42

Description: The Potomac Sample Room was located at the Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. brewery on Jefferson Street in Downtown Tacoma over 100 years ago. It was Tacoma’s original tap room. Potomac Citra Pale is a medium bodied single hop beer showcasing Citra hops from the Yakima Valley. Potomac’s aroma provides strong citrus and tropical tones of grapefruit, melon, lime, and passion fruit.

Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. Red Front Amber

RED FRONT AMBER

Style: Red Ale – American Amber / Red
ABV: 5.2%
IBU: 34

Description: Named after a pre-prohibition Tacoma saloon that almost certainly served Pacific Beer back in the day, Red Front Amber is a Single Malt and Single Hop beer made from 100% Best Malz Red X malt and 100% Yakima grown Cascade hops. An intense red color, malty, full-bodied flavor and mild hop character. An approachable Red Ale that is smooth and easy drinking.

Pacific Brewing & Malting Co. Grit City Porter

GRIT CITY PORTER

Style: Porter – Other
ABV: 6.7%
IBU: 37

Description: Grit City Porter is a dark, almost opaque, brown color and a creamy brown head. Roasted coffee-toffee flavors and aromas from large amounts of crystal and chocolate malts. Very smooth and drinkable despite being full-bodied. Grit City Porter is named after Tacoma’s blue collar nickname, Grit City, and the beer consumed by street porters in 18th century England.

THE HISTORY OF PACIFIC BREWING & MALTING CO.

The history of craft brewing in Tacoma goes back much further than you may think. The Pacific Brewing and Malting Company formed in Downtown Tacoma in 1897 as a result of a merger between Puget Sound Brewing Company and Milwaukee Brewing Company. Pacific Brewing grew to be one of the largest breweries in the Northwest and the Pacific Beer brand was hugely popular along the entire West Coast. Success was, unfortunately, cut short by state-wide Prohibition in 1916 and Pacific Brewing closed its doors shortly thereafter.

Nearly 100 years later, Pacific Brewing returned Downtown Tacoma. Reformed by a group of local beer enthusiasts with a love of Tacoma and its rich history, Pacific Brewing & Malting Co., complete with the original logo, is once again setting its sights on being one of the premier craft breweries in the Northwest. Our lineup includes 1897 Lager, Dirty Skoog Double IPA, Grit City Porter, Prairie Line IPA, Potomac Citra Pale Ale, as well as many seasonals and limited edition beers.
