Draw a Glass to Pint Defiance’s One-Year Anniversary!

(Yes, I know that the title of this post is “Draw a Glass” and not “Raise a Glass” — you’ll see why shortly).

Last week was an important anniversary that I missed: One year since the opening of Tacoma’s Quite-Quite-Fantastic taproom, Pint Defiance.

It is an excellent place to pick up some bottles, have a pint, or fill a growler with a rather tasty beverage. Before Carrie caught the preggers (and before I stopped drinking out of solidarity) we tended to go there whenever we needed to bring good beer to a dinner or party or what-have-you.

If you’ve never been there Chandler O’Leary did a couple of excellent drawings of the interior so you’ll know what to expect when you DO go there (and you should).

Chandler O’Leary, by the way, is a local Tacoma artist who has a very cool blog called “Drawn the Road Again” where she makes quite excellent illustrations of her many travels.

She also runs Anagram Press, a Tacoma letterpress printing company. You should really check that out. Chandler also just happened to design the Pint Defiance Logo. Plus, she and a friend of hers are the team behind the “Dead Feminists” series of prints.

Dead Feminist Postcards.

Dead Feminist Postcards! Get Some!

Carrie & I have several Dead Feminists postcards scattered throughout our house:

Several of our friends have them scattered about their houses, as well. So can you!

So, in conclusion: get some beer at Pint Defiance, get some letterpress art from Chandler O’Leary, and enjoy some Tacoma finery.
