What we're about

IMPORTANT: In response to current concerns about COVID-19, Tacoma Public Library is replacing all in-person events with virtual events until further notice.

Discuss great books at this age 21 and over book club while supporting Tacoma’s microbrewery and craft beer scene. We’ll pick a new book each month and sample a new bar, brewery or brewpub. Sponsored by the Tacoma Public Library. We meet on the last Tuesday of the month and the last Wednesday of the month from 7-8pm. All are welcome!
