The South Sound's best kept secret, revealed!
Deck the halls with boughs of hops! Leave it to visionary architect Dusty Trail and his wife, Karen, to take a historic electrical substation in Puyallup and turn it into a brewing powerhouse voted “Best Brewpub in the West” at the National Brewpub Conference and Tradeshow. The lofty, red brick surroundings, tasty and eclectic menu–from steak and potatoes to fiery Thai curries–and friendly, familiar service are just the beginnings. The fresh brew will keep you coming back! All Powerhouse beers are brewed in small batches, artfully combining the world's best malts, yeast, and whole cone hops. Also, kids love slurping a frothy root beer (just $2.50 per pint!) when they're not devouring a plate of noodles. Schedule a brewpub tour, host a holiday party or just drop by.
