Soon, Gig Harbor Brewing will be a misnomer no more.
Since it opened two years ago, the company has operated in Tacoma, but owner John Fosberg has always longed to take the brewery to its namesake home. Several potential Gig Harbor locations were scouted for a taproom, but Fosberg admits he hasn’t been able to find the right venue — until now.
“This space is perfect,” said Fosberg of the over-1,900-square-foot space, located at 3155 Harborview Dr. at the Gig Harbor Marina and Boatyard. “In the heart of Gig Harbor — next to Skansie Brothers Park and the water — along Harborview Drive. Exactly where we wanted to be.”
The current Tacoma taproom and brewery site will remain, and all of the company’s beers will continue to be brewed at the Tacoma location. Plans are to have the doors open in Gig Harbor sometime in April next year.
