Airways Brewing Co. celebrates sixth anniversary of its downtown Kent restaurant

The Airways Brewing Co. Bistro celebrate six years of growth on Wednesday, Nov. 1.

Airways Brewing opened its second location on the same day in 2011 – filling a 1,200-square-foot space with 40 seats in downtown Kent. Last December, an expansion was completed to allow for an additional 40 seats and a family-friendly dining area indoors, as well as an outdoor area that can hold up to 80 seats when weather permits.

The bistro continues to draw craft beer lovers from throughout the country to downtown Kent, earning multiple awards from the Kent Downtown Partnership as well as the Washington Main Street Program.

“Six years have passed so quickly and the best for the Bistro is yet to come as Kent continues to grow.” said Alex Dittmar, co-founder at Airways Brewing Company. “We’ve enjoyed bringing new and different beer and menu options to our downtown, as well as getting to know so many of the people that make up this community. Thank you to all of our customers and the city of Kent for your amazing support over the years.”

To celebrate, the bistro is offering complimentary dessert to customers from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m., or for as long as supplies last, at 320 W. Harrison St. The event is open to the public.
