Default Tacoma (Ft. Lewis) visit...

I'll be headed to Lewis in a couple of weeks. Anyone want to share some brews with me? As always, the forst round's on me...

I've been there a couple of times before. My wife and I visited her relatives in Yakima and a cousin in Bremerton a time or two.

I've been to Jimi's gravesite in Renton...and played guitar with the hippie wannabees at the needle...

I'll be staying in Tacoma this time.

OK, so there are no HB'ers in Tacoma or Seattle, huh? I find this very hard to believe...

Hey I just stumbled across your post. I live in Lakewood and would be up for grabbing a beer and talking about homebrew. There are a couple great places around we could go. Let me know when you're going to be here and we'll figure something out.

Will do Brandon.



EvilTOJ: Talk about bad timing...I'm leaving on the 28th.

I did spent a couple of weeks in Portland many years ago. I was fielding the M119A1 howitzer to the guard in Klackamas.

I'm about a mile away from Explosive. You can hit me up when you come by. I should be brewing a couple of batches this month. maybe you could come by on a brew day.

We get in on Sunday afternoon. That's about the only "day" I have free. I'll be working all day every day. Thanks for the invite though.

I'll have to take one night and spend it with my wife's cousin and her family in Bremerton, but other than that I'm free.

EDIT: Well, Andre, that was a surprise phone call. Very quick. You obviously don't work for customer service do you? Too fast...Good to hear from you nonetheless.

Missed the thread. If you by any chance can leave family for a few hours we might have something. I'm just up the road in Silverdale, and we have Silver City Brewery in town.

OK, I located Silverdale on the map...I've been through it on the way to the 305 to catch the ferry across to the big town...

I'll have to try to work the logistics out. There are three possible scenarios.

1. I won't be the guy with the rental car. Although the two guys with me are drinkers also so maybe they'll want to go on a field trip. If so, it's doable.

2. (Right now) I'm assuming my wife's cousin will have to pick me up and drop me off. If that's the case then maybe I can talk them into dinner at the pub. If that works then you're on.

3. They'll give me the car for the night and I can do BOTH on my own...
