For more than 20 years, the South Sound has been indulging in craft beer that is rich with Tacoma’s history.  The Harmon Brewery began with one man’s idea and a beautiful brick building. Pat Nagle, a Tacoma native, opened the doors to the iconic Harmon Brewery on Pacific Avenue in 1997, and one of Tacoma’s very first microbreweries was born.

In September of 1997, the same month as UW Tacoma’s very first fall semester, the Harmon Brewery opened its doors to their new 8,000-square-foot home with a 15-barrel brewing system.

Nagle’s dream of creating a basecamp for local beer lovers grew into something so much more. Over the course of the last 20 years, the Harmon and HUB restaurants have become South Sound sanctuaries, providing their patrons with locally sourced, award-winning craft beers, great food, and a place to kick back and relax after long day outdoors. The Harmon has watched Tacoma grow significantly over the years, becoming a staple in the downtown community, and it all started with one man’s idea and a beautiful brick building.
