I was able to stop the Swiss during my last visit to Tacoma. It is located close to both the Harmon & the Rock Pizza, mini pub-crawl anyone?

This is a nice older but well maintained building. There is a smallish terrace in front to enjoy the outdoors and the street scenes. You can access the terrace from several of the rooms.

Inside it is divided into several open and connected rooms that are separated by some cool decorative arches or old doors. The barroom has 15' high old tin ceiling, a simple but nice old back bar and some really neat decorations (art glass sculptures mixed with brewarania and stuffed animals). The walls are a couple shades of soothing greens and beige.

Approximately 36 taps with 5 macros but these include PBR and that old school favorite Oly! There are 8 European choices with the balance being Western US micros.

They have a friendly staff that was freely giving out samples. Great classic rock on the sound system (Steve Miller's Space Cowboy, Lou Reed, live George Harrison, etc.)

The Swiss attracts a friendly crowd with a wide age range represented, but mainly lots of students from the almost adjacent university.

I did not try the food on this visit, but they have an extensive blackboard menu & the dishes I saw go past looked and smelled good.

Nothing netural about the Swiss, be sure to stop by when in Tacoma!
