A toast to the arts in Tacoma
By Colin Anderson
As local musicians, dancers, directors and choreographers continue to get back to their pre-pandemic routines, fans of the arts are eagerly awaiting the live performances they’ve come to love. Putting on a full-scale show or performance takes plenty of rehearsal time, which is why the live show schedule is beginning to fill up this fall and winter.
The arts were one of the hardest hit industries during the peak of the pandemic, and it will take renewed support and appreciation to keep the Tacoma arts scene thriving and alive once more. One way to help out is through a monetary donation that, as an added bonus, comes with a few delicious beverages.
Tacoma Arts Live is putting on a beer tasting event which benefits the artists and venues the organization promotes. Brew Five Three To-Go will take place on Friday, August 6, and Saturday, August 7. Once you’ve purchased your ticket, you’ll be rewarded with a selection of local or regional craft beers to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. There are several packages available depending on what you’d like to try:
The 253 Kit - Features eight cans/bottles of brews created in the 253
Sweet Gritty City Kit - Features eight cans/bottles of ciders and seltzers
NEW! The Bold & The Beautiful - Features eight cans/bottles of bold IPAs and beautiful sours
The Sasquatch Route Kit - Features 12 cans/bottles of unique Pacific Northwest brews
The Sasquatch Route Kit is $100, while the other three options are each $50. No matter which you choose, your kit comes with a commemorative pint glass as well as some other fun goodies. Also included with your ticket is a Zoom invite to a tasting with a cicerone (the sommelier of beer!) and a Q&A session with the brewers at Wet Coast Brewing.
