Parkway Tavern pours imported beers only once a year. Wednesday is that day. That's when the North Tacoma tavern will pit Belgian beers against American beers of similar style. The event starts at 7 p.m.
As Parkway publican John O'Gara noted, "Belgians won by a landslide" last year.
Among this year's highlights, according to O'Gara: "New Belgium Le Fleur Misseur is being shipped to us especially for the event, and the Ste. Feuillien will be poured from a huge 9-liter bottle."
