Here's a fun stop in Puyallup, a few miles out of Tacoma: the Powerhouse Restaurant and Brewery. The red brick building started out as a substation to step down the voltage from a hydroelectric plant on a side of Mt. Rainier to a current the trolley system could use.
Oh, they do beer here, too. I saw seven regular taps and three seasonals. A couple of electrical names, Powerhouse Pale and Amperage Amber, but they don't overdo it. I tried the Pale and it was nicely done without any unusual wrinkles. The menu appeared to be pretty much pub fare, but with some steak, fish and chicken dishes that could be tasty.
