Day 26: The Powerhouse Restaurant and Brewery, Puyallup, WA

Feel like eating in a historic Puyallup building? Well, The Powerhouse Restaurant and Brewery is the place to go; located on East Main in Downtown Puyallup this is a great place to eat.

Originally, the building was used as the Puyallup Substation, providing power to many of the residences in the valley. Then in 1994 it underwent an extensive renovation and became The Powerhouse Restaurant and Brewery.

The Powerhouse is known for the fact that they brew their own beer here and have a very large selection of seasonal beers. So if you enjoy a fresh ale or if your like me and prefer the plain root beer…they have you covered.

The Powerhouse serves everything from pizza, pasta, burgers, steaks, salads and more. Plus, its cool every time the trains go by…

Come down and check it out.
