5. In honor of The Swiss Restaurant and Pub's 21st birthday this past spring, 7 Seas Brewing in Gig Harbor reunited Swiss owners Jack McQuade and a retired Bob Hill, now living on a mountain, to brew a special beer for the occasion. The two gave their input, selected the hops for 7 Seas' malt and helped brew it. "We chose an Imperial Red Ale because it's the new popular style. Plus, it ties in with The Swiss, the red shield," says McQuade. "And we like hoppy beers down here. So we hopped it up a bit. Plus, there are a ton of IPAs out there, so there is another reason to go with the red ale." The resulting collaboration ale, Revi Red, will be one of the 7 Seas brews in the spotlight tonight as The Swiss hosts the brewery for a Brewer's Night with raffle giveaways from 6-9 p.m.
