It is a great spot in downtown Kent... the beer is great, the service is friendly and the flatbreads are tasty. It is a bit loud, but it is a great place to hang out.

Went to Airways for a Friday happy hour with some friends. Very good beer selection, 5-6 Airways beers, brewed right in Kent, and then another 4-5 beers and a hard-cider brewed by some other local Puget Sound brewers.
We ate some appetizers and pizza, the soft pretzel was very good and also the pizza. The pizza's were square, kind of a thin crust but not hard or crunchy, and the toppings were good, we had a garlic pizza and two meat pizzas.
Service was very good, they kept our beers filled, and were friendly and very knowledgeable about the beer selection.
The place is not too big, only seating for 40-50 people. and the entrance doesn't face the street, a parking lot and solid brick wall are what you see from the street the entrance is kind of on the side, some of our group couldn't find the place at first.
Parking is fine, the lot is small and shared with another business (maybe 10-12 cars) but there's lots of street parking and a larger commuter lot across the street.
Our only complaint, (and its not really a complaint), was the noise. Our group was about 10-12 people and we were probably half of all the occupants, so it wasn't jammed full and crowded, and there's no music or other noise, but it got really loud just from people talking. Now some would say that our group just has a lot of loud mouths, and that may be true, but it still seemed loud. It seems like the problem may just be lots of hard flat surfaces, and nothing to deaden the sound. We asked the owner and he said they're looking at some decorating ideas to incorporate some acoustic changes.
