Harmon's second spot in Tacoma

 After Engine House 9, I swung by the new Harmon's on Tacoma Ave.  While the website calls it Harmon's Hub and develops a bicycle theme with photos and art, the inside wasn't showing a bike theme or much of anything. I could guess 70% of the inside space is giving over to brewing operations, with several long tables and benches out front. It felt more like a production brewery although the kitchen was turning out most of the pub food they have downtown. Perhaps this facility is allowing Harmon's to increase production without sacrificing restaurant space downtown.  I saw the original Harmon's last year while going through the Washington State History Museum across the street. It was doing a good business mid-afternoon on a weekday in February, so I can well imagine the restaurant is packed at peak periods.  This trip, I had a Brown's Point ESB and savored the maltiness.
   One noteworthy feature here: happy hour prices include growler fills for $8 between 5 and 6 p.m.  The rate is $10 other times.
