The Hub-Tacoma, WA

Run by the Harmon Brewery this great place in the stadium district is a must if you have a half pint in tow and need a pint of your own!

Several things make this establishment kiddo friendly. First, they have games that the kids can play in the restaurant. In the back you can find little table games (like tic tac toe) that the kids can take back to the table with them.

Next up their HAPPY HOUR (which they have all week, including the weekend)! I always love a place that does happy hour in the restaurant NOT just the bar (lets face it, parents need happy hour more than anyone!). With great deals on beers, desserts, and my favorite the Cajun Tots!

The half pint loves the happy hour pizza. Unlike most happy hour pizzas that are the size of a small dish plate this one is 10 inches and plenty to share! I recommend the buffalo chicken, the kid recommends the cheese:)

Crux Fermentation & Worthy-Bend, OR

It has been way to long since I’ve had a chance to blog!! We took another great trip to Bend in January and once again had a chance to hit up some great new half pint friendly venues: Crux and Worthy. Along with this we visited some other favorites that just keep getting better and better (I’m looking at you Deschutes!).

Wow! That is all that came to mind when we walked in this place. Gorgeous copper kettles line this amazing brewery. Their craft brew list is huge, and they had some of the best beers I’ve had in a long time.

We didn’t have any food, but it looked great.

The only bad part if  you come with your half pint is (even though this place is huge) it is packed! They have great long family-style tables to sit at…but it might be a little crammed if you have a mobile half pint. I wouldn’t hesitate to go however because it’s great. They also have a great outdoor area—so if you come in the summer your kiddo will have lots of room to run around.

Cheers!

This place is a HUGE new brewery in Bend. I have never seen anything like it. They are growing hops outside, have a green house, and  have a huge brew area and a restaurant.

**Update on this! We ate food there this time and it was GREAT! The pizza was some of the best I’d had in awhile, and the people we had with us thought it was the best place we took them in Bend.

I think their food and beer just keep getting better, so this has moved to the top of my list of places you should check out in Bend if you have kids with you.

This place is very family friendly with coloring menus, running around space and a HUGE outdoor seating area.

Cheers!
