Airways Brewing

Airways Brewing

Airways Brewing beer is served at some of the finest bars and restaurants in Washington and Oregon. But there’s no place like home when it comes to this noted Kent brewer.

Two great places to taste in Kent

Owners and brewers Alex and Dione Dittmar offer two Kent locations to gather and enjoy Airways’ award-winning Jumbo Juice IPA along with all the other tasty selections Airways has on tap.

  • Stop by the taproom. Airways Brewing Tap Room and Brewery is a great place to sit, socialize and have a pint or two. Chat with the brewers and get a growler to go. They’re always brewing at Airways, so visit often to find out what’s on tap.
  • Pair your pint with some good food...and the family. Airways Brewing Bistro serves creative, locally sourced selections, paired with just the right brew to compliment your meal. The 50-seat patio is the perfect setting to relax, indulge in a pint or challenge your kids to a game of cornhole.

Ducleaux Cellars

Ducleaux Cellars

This Washington boutique winery has far outgrown its humble beginnings in a garage. Winemaker Chris Dukelow has transformed a hobby and passion into handcrafted, small-batch reds and whites made with grapes sourced from some of Washington’s finest vineyards.

What’s pouring?

Stop by Kent’s only wine-tasting room for a sip or three. Be sure to try Love & Chaos, a smooth blending of cab and merlot. It’s totally okay to try the One Night Stand. This merging of Sangiovese and Tempranillo makes for a delightful rosé.
