DUPONT — After serving our country both overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan and stateside as a sheriff's deputy, Jared Wharton decided to put his knowledge of brewing to work and opened Forward Operating Base Brewing Company in DuPont.

While his target audience is servicemembers and vets, which is visible from the taproom decor to the names awarded to his beers, anyone can walk through the door and enjoy great food and craft beer just across from Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

The brewery also hosts live music and festivities, with their next event being Beer, Yoga, and Friends on August 11 at 10:30 AM.

Forward Operating Base Brewing Company is located at 2750 Williamson Place NW, Suite #100, DuPont.
