TACOMA (January 3, 2018) On January 11, Peaks and Pints in Tacoma is releasing their first house beer courtesy of Seattle’s Two Beers Brewing Co. Touted as a craft beer taproom where brew nerds can wave their geek flags, Peaks and Pints has been featuring a selection of some of the best beers the Pacific Northwest has to offer since November 2016. Now, Peaks and Pints is thrilled to pour this exclusive creation, developed as a collaboration between the Seattle brewery and the Tacoma taproom.

Ron Swarner, Owner and Beer Adventure Guide at Peaks and Pints, has been dreaming of creating a house beer for the craft brew destination. “I really like dank IPA’s and wanted to create the kind of beer I crave after a day of snowboarding or a big climb,” said Swarner. “I’ve been a fan of Two Beers Brewing for a long time. They’re all about the outdoors, the people here are amazing, it just made sense to work with them to brew this beer.”

Proctor Peaks IPA (6.7% ABV and 68 IBUs) is a double dry hopped beer with a flavor profile that can best be described as dank, dank, dank. Proctor Peaks showcases Warrior, Columbus, Simcoe, and Chinook hops, is dry hopped with Simcoe and Chinook, and boasts an addition of Simcoe at the zero minute for good measure. The IPA will go on tap at 6PM on January 11 at Peak and Pints (located at 3816 N 26th St Tacoma, WA 98407) where it will remain a permanent handle. Proctor Peaks IPA will later pour  at The Woods tasting room as part of their rotating draft offerings.

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the taproom

Not an object was stirring, not even a broom;

The mugs were stored in their cubbies with care,

In hopes that Overhang Imperial Porter soon would be there;

The brewers were nestled all snug in their beds;

While visions of Chinook hops danced in their heads;


Joel in his Patagonia, and Dan in a Mariners cap,

Had just settled their spins for a long winter’s nap,

When out on the brew deck there arose such a clatter,

I sprang from my desk to see what was the matter.

Away to the window the team flew like a flash,

Tore open the door and breathed in the mash.


The head on the crest of a newly poured stout,

Gave notice as to what our next buzz was about,

When what to our bleary eyes did appear,

But a miniature cask and eight bottles of beer,

With a designated driver so lively and quick,

We knew in a moment we wouldn’t be sick.

More rapid than a wort chiller, Jesse’s favorites they came,

And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name:

“Now, Fall Line! now, B-BombParabola and Victory at Sea!

On, Cozy Sweater! on, Jubelale! on, Bifrost and Tipsy!

To the top of the tank! to the top of the wall!

Now chug away! chug away! chug away all!”


As dry mouths quenched, coworkers exhaled relief;

A year of hard work behind them, that was their belief;

So up to the counter the imbibers they sat,

With pints full of dubbels, they drank with a chat.

And then, in a clinking I heard from the bar,

The shatter of Dane’s glass from not very far;

As Kristen drew in her head, and was turning around,

Down the hallway Ian came, dustpan abound.

A Northwest native, he was dressed all in plaid

And he tidied up the mess, not even mad;


A bundle of cans Julio had flung on his back,

And he looked like a saint just opening his pack.

Adam’s eyes—how they twinkled! his dimples, how merry!

His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry!

Kimi shared the last Day Hike, her favorite, we know,

The lacing on the beer was as white as the snow.

The warm nectar we held behind our teeth,

Notes of toasted barrels, encircled heads like a wreath;

Devin reached for the Jameson, adding fire to his belly,

He slammed back the shot, they’d need to make haste to a deli.


Out of the SoDo darkness, an Uber XL arrived,

We couldn’t pile in fast enough, not even if we tried;

A blink of his headlights and a twist of the wheel

Soon our sober chariot sussed out our deal;

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,

And drove us to Fonda la Catrina, a most delicious perk,

And laying his finger aside his automatic lock,

Giving a nod, up the street we started to walk;

With the flip of a blinker, he gave his phone a swipe,

And away they all flew, a Seattle beer loving stereotype.


But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight—

“Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!”

Daylight has grown shorter which can make it hard to motivate to make dinner. This oven roasted chicken  couldn’t be more easy, and you get to drink our winter ale while you prep!


  • 1 small chicken, about 4.5-5lbs
  • 2 cans of Tipsy Toboggan
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 8-10 small potatoes, scored
  • 3-4 carrots, whole
  • 1-2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cinnamon stuck, 3 clove stems (optional)


  • Generous dose of Old Bay
  • 1 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Place a baking dish, roasting pan or dutch oven on a baking sheet. With a can opener along the seam of the can, open the Tipsy Toboggan and take a few sips and/or pour about 1/2 off the beer out.
  • Set the can in the center of the dish, add orange slice, cinnamon stick, and cloves.
  • Pour remaining can of Tipsy Toboggan into dish. Arrange vegetables.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the seasoning mix.
  • In another bowl, add the softened butter. Add a few pinches (about 1/3 of the mix) of the spice mix to the butter and stir together until combined and smooth. Gently lift the skin of the chicken and rub the butter all over the breasts (UNDER the skin) and the thighs, if you can get to them. You only have to add a thin layer because much of the butter will run out of the chicken as it cooks. Push it up underneath the skin as far as it can go.
  • Slice one of the oranges into 1/8-inch slices and slide them up underneath the skin – as many as you can fit in one layer.
  • Gently sit the chicken on top of the can of beer, the beer can going into the cavity of the chicken.
  • Rub the outsides with olive oil – don’t miss a spot! And rub the remaining spice rub over top. Slice the other orange in half and shove it face down in the top cavity of the chicken (where the neck would be).
  • Roast the chicken for 1 hour and 15 minutes, until inner juices run clear.
  • When finished, carefully remove the pans from the oven and let the chicken rest for about 10 minutes.
