Brews, Wine & Spirits
Forget the ritzy theaters and overcrowded nightclubs. Gig Harbor’s nightlife is not what you’ll find in a typical big city. But worry not.

Wet Coast is located in the Kimball Shopping Center at 6820 Kimball Drive, and the new tasting room is warm and inviting and certainly a place not to miss!

With its generous deck size and enormous number of beers on tap, the Tides Tavern is a stop you must make.
