About: (From Peaks and Pints)
It may seem as though you’ve driven all the way to the mountains — just for a craft beer. But you’re actually in the grand confines of Peaks and Pints at Basecamp Proctor in Tacoma. Peaks and Pints is no makeshift tavern in a one-horse town. Co-founded by longtime media pooh-bah Ron Swarner and restaurateurs Justin and Robby Peterson, this craft beer store, taproom and eatery is planned down to the metal plates and tall tree in the corner.

Step into Peaks and Pints and the first thing you notice is … up. The sky-high ceiling is compliments of the movie theater that occupied the space in the early 1900s. A five-and-dime store moved in in the early 1940s and we have the pine floor to prove it. The walls teem with vintage mountainscapes and alpine accouterments, making guests feel like they’re being beckoned by an old mountain saloon where they’ll get good eats and likely know a few people by name. The 3,600 square foot joint looks like Paul Bunyan’s vacation home.

Thankfully, Peaks and Pints carries its mountain motif past the racket of most theme joints. Only one ginormous silent TV plays above the 13-door beer cooler; what we call “SudsPop” provides awesome background tunes of all genres. The “Green Room” with skylights and a fireplace waits just off our 35-foot long bar.

The Peaks and Pints staff has high energy and a passion for craft beer. Expect consistently outstanding service and exceptional beer knowledge from a team that has been trained to really know their stuff. Peaks and Pints packs a mind-boggling array of suds: some 600 different bottled beers and cans, with another 23 on tap, including nitro lines. That’s some serious brew. While craft beer remains our foundation, you don’t have to be embarrassed for ordering artisan craft cider, wine, cold brewed coffee and kombucha as those delights are from our Western red cedar tap log too.
