So whatever happened to that beer store in Tacoma? Well, it’s shelved for now.

In May, I wrote about Brewtopia, the beer store project from Linda and David Dagley, owners of Tacoma’s Jonz Catering, which also runs the Workz CafĂ© at the Tacoma Art Museum.

In May, the Dagleys had applied for a license with the state liquor board to open the bottle shop in Tacoma. They were looking at two locations. Then they hit their first roadblock: the name. Turns out that the name Brewtopia was already trademarked. So they changed gears and renamed the concept Beertropolis.

But now the project is shelved, the Dagleys say. I got this email last week from Linda Dagley when I asked about their progress on Beertropolis, “We ran into some financing road blocks and decided to wait until next year to try again. We will start working on Beertropolis early next year and see if we can get it going.”

And so we wait.

In the meantime, if you are searching for craft beer and microbrews, I know of a few stores with great bottle selections. Click “more” to read about my favorite bottle shops in Tacoma and Federal Way (and one in Olympia). Read more »
