Story Behind the Name: Jeanne de Clisson was a French Noblewoman from the 1300's whose husband was accused of treason & beheaded. In response, she sold their belongings, bought a trio of ships, painted the hulls black, dyed the sails crimson, & created the Black Fleet. Gaining notoriety for beheading French Noblemen she found aboard ships with an axe, she became known as "The Bloody Lioness" & "The Lioness of Brittany". The British even offered her safe haven on their shores related to her success. Just as the Lioness of Brittany sailed, Thea Foss built a name for herself, & Tacoma residents carry themselves fiercely, we brew with a passion, drive, & focus to be & do more with our craft & community. From classic to something new, our brew styles & food menu & flavors are built to blend comfort & adventure with each pint & plate while using Pacific Northwest inspired ingredients. We want to show you what more we can do for our community at Black Fleet Brewing Taproom & Kitchen. Beer & Food: Black Fleet Brewing Taproom & Kitchen has twelve taps: 10 pouring our house-brewed beers & 2 pouring gluten-friendly local ciders. We also carry house-made craft sodas! Our food menu features beer-infused dishes varying from classic pub-fare such as Wild-Caught Alaskan Cod fish & chips, the SMaSHed Beer Brat - a locally made Verone's link cooked with Crown SMaSHer ale, onions, & a delicious blend of spices - & vegan Beer-Battered Cauliflower with your choice of dipping sauce (though we recommend our Honey Mustard or Sweet Chili sauces!). These items & more are available from our full kitchen, open daily from noon until Last Call!
