"The Tacoma Tap Room offers the same comfortable, family-friendly atmosphere as our Gig Harbor location, but is housed within the Historic Heidelberg Brewery. The Heidelberg Brewery operated at this location from 1900-1979, brewing a sizable 750,000 barrels of beer annually. For the first time in almost 40 years the smell of malt and hops has returned to the Brewery District with our revitalization of the Historic site.

Located directly next to the University of Washington Tacoma campus, enjoy easy accessibility to local activities and experiences. World-class museums are only blocks away including the Museum of Glass, Washington State History Museum, Tacoma Art Museum, and the America’s Car Museum. The Tacoma Dome, Historic Swiss Pub.

Within the Tap Room enjoy 7 Seas year-round brews, seasonals, and a constantly rotating Tap Room Reserve Series, there is sure to be a beer to fit your tastes. Try a selection of our offerings with one of our four, six, or eight taster flights, or fill your growler to go. We also offer a local WA cider, kombucha, gluten-free beers from Seattle’s Ghostfish Brewing, and several non-alcoholic offerings."  -; 3/4/2020

Tacoma Smelter Walking Tour

A walking tour of the Smelter site (Point Ruston), Dune Peninsula, Town of Ruston, will be conducted after the last breakout session that ends 5:10 pm this evening.  That means we would get to the starting point for this activity around 5:30 – 6:00 pm.


This will be a walking conversation with conferees from public health departments from around Washington State.  This is not a presentation or prepared speeches format.  You will get a little history, some remediation strategy, a look at the redevelopment of a Superfund Site, changes in the community, education and outreach to residents, etc.
