Down in Tacoma, across the street from the Dome, Wingman Brewers is livening up the scene with evocations of WWII airplanes. They tell their story on their Facebook page, about how Ken Thoburn and three friends started home-brewing in college and now, just a few years after graduation, went commercial and are going on two years as a brewery. Ken's grandfather painted nose cone art on WW II bombers and inspired the names and logos of most of their brews. Here are two that they put out in cans:
The cans are filled by a mobile canning service, but Wingman does some bottling itself. I got to take a pic of the two bottled options, keeping in mind that these labels have not been approved by the feds and have been resubmitted with minor changes.
I put the contestants on the table and poured a bit of each into my two favorite tulip glasses.
