The expansion of Engine House No. 9 to a location in Tacoma’s Historic Brewery District is nearing completion, according to the company.

The new 9,000-square-foot facility, which will house a tap room plus the company’s beer-making operations, is located at 2506 Fawcett Avenue.

Although the company had planned for a mid-March opening date, according to co-owner Jeff Paradise, the recent snow has caused some delays. A firm opening date is expected to be announced by the end of this month.

The current Engine House No. 9 restaurant, located at 611 North Pine Street, will remain in business. The new brewery and taproom facility will be rebranded as E9 Brewing Co. in order to differentiate between the two locations.
