South Sound Craft Crawl

Special Craft Crawler’s Course

Do you appreciate the hard work and craftsmanship that goes into making a delicious brew? Yes?! We do too! We invite you to join the Craft Crawl and taste over 100 of our locally made beers and ciders, from the fearless artisans that reign the region.

South Sound? You better believe it. From Tacoma to Olympia—more than 40 artisanal breweries and cideries (20ish off course). A rising craft culture that’s just being tapped.

  • Tasting rooms
  • Brewpubs
  • Distribution-only brewers

What exactly is the Craft Crawl? Glad you asked. With your course and passport in hand, collect stamps at each location you visit. Fifteen stamps get you a prized growler. Swing by any course location marked with a trophy icon on the passport to show off your stamps and pick up your prize. You can also pick up your growler at the Travel Tacoma + Pierce County Visitor Information Center Monday-Friday 10am-4pm or Saturdays between 10am-3pm. 

With year-round beer festivals and more brewery openings in the “hop”-per, there’s no doubt that here you’ll sip some of the best suds in the state. Hop on the rail to ale, Tacoma’s free Link Light Rail, with stops at seven breweries, all in the heart of downtown.

Not sure where to start? Let Lifestyle Tours or Bikerobrew help you craft the perfect crawl.

Cheers to premium pints and bragging rights!

Ladies and gentlemen, start your crawling.
