    17 events
    Set among the picturesque, rolling hills of Green Bluff, the new brewery was opened earlier this year by experienced homebrewer Mike Beckman on his family’s Christmas tree farm. The small tasting room is cozy and rustic. During a visit this spring, it was packed with pretzel-snacking customers, who had tapped out several of the offerings. The staff, however, more than made up for the limited suds selection with hospitality, setting up chairs so visitors could take in the spectacular scenery.

  • Badass Backyard Brewing

    3115 N. Butler Rd., Millwood Spokane Valley

    208-659-6946

    Charlene Honcik is taking the term “homebrewer” to a whole new level. Her brewery, Badass Backyard Brewing, celebrated its grand opening in a detached shop at her home in Millwood earlier this month. Don’t be fooled by the location, though; the taproom is as bona fide as they come, and she already has six brews on tap. So far, the brewery is only open on Saturdays, but Honcik (the badass herself) has her sights set on a higher capacity brewing system and an off-site pub in the future.

    When two attorneys in pursuit of wine accidentally stumbled upon a wine-making equipment store instead, the idea behind Barrister Winery was born. Grapes in Barrister's wines are sourced from 10 different vineyards all located inside Washington state. With a newly opened tasting room (as of fall 2015) on the first floor of the Liberty Building across from the also new Davenport Grand Hotel, swing by to sample some wine per suggestion, or, if you’re really invested in wine, join Barrister's wine club of more than 1,000 members.

    Childhood friends with a passion for brewing, David Musser and Thomas Croskrey turned their hobby into a business when they launched a family friendly and community oriented brewery. Veering away from the typical hops-heavy brews, the duo prefer adding honey to create a more malty flavor. With no TVs and a very open atmosphere, Musser and Croskrey hope to incite great conversations shared over tasty beers. (Nov. 2015)

    509-290-5018

    In the summer of 2015, Chris Bennett, the longtime owner of Bennidito’s Pizza on the South Hill, finally realized his dream when he opened this east-of-downtown Spokane brewpub with his ex-wife and business partner Sigrid Bennett. Brewer Zach Shaw, a veteran of the early days of the Northern California craft beer boom, hopes to bring some of that spirit to the creations made at Bennidito’s Brewpub. Shaw doesn’t plan to make the “hop bombs” that have come to dominate the Northwest beer scene, but is open to experimenting with an array of styles.

Their Raspberry Wit Hefeweizen, Strawberry Blonde Ale and newly released Cherry Kolsch are made with fresh berries grown right on site, and are sure to cool you off on a hot day. Stroll to the other side of the property to find some of the hops found in your beer, growing in rows. Make sure to check out Big Barn on a Sunday to enjoy a cold one accompanied by live music.

    1 event 1 article
    Located in the new Saranac Commons on West Main, a hip up-and-coming spot, Black Label Brewing is a tiny yet welcoming, brightly lit space. The spot opened up at the beginning of the year after two best friends, Steve Wells and Dan Dvorak, realized their dream — thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign and help from friends — after years of homebrewing their session-style ales and lagers. The duo grow some of the hops they use on a farm near Garden Springs, and harvest their own honey for Black Label’s honey blonde ale. While sampling Black Label beers, patrons can order and enjoy food at the bar top from one of the Commons’ many eateries: Mediterrano, Caffé Affogato or Common Crumb Bakery. This community spirit carries on to Black Label’s rotating guest taps, which highlight other area breweries’ creations, as well as locally made cider and even kombucha.

  • Budge Brothers Brewery

    2018 E. Riverside Ave. Spokane - East

    509-426-3340

    1 article
    Tucked away in a nondescript building just off of Sprague Avenue, Budge Brothers Brewery has the feel of someone having a growler night in their basement. Bruce Budge works frantically to fill up the growlers of customers steadily streaming in, apologizing for the wait. The customers, many of whom are regulars, don’t mind. The brewery was started by Bruce and his brother Brad after the two got tired of working cooking jobs and decided to turn their love for beer into a business specializing in Northwest-style beers and ales, many infused with hops grown in the region. Although you can buy a pint and relax at a table in the small tasting room, the brewery has centered its business model on filling up growlers that go for $6 to $8 and $5 on Wednesdays.

  • Daft Badger Brewing

    1710 N. Second Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls

    208-665-9892

    2 articles
    Inside what was once co-owner Darrell Dlouhy's painting shop, you'll find a full pub menu and a beer list that spans the style spectrum. On one end, there's the hop-forward Badgers Bounty IPA; on the other, the more malty Josiah's Revenge, an imperial stout. The pub also regularly releases experimental small-batch beers, most recently a scotch ale with the Anchorman-inspired name Scotchy Scotch Scotch Ale. Dlouhy says Daft Badger was intended to follow a brewpub model — "You can smell and hear us brewing while you're here," he says — but has recently begun distributing their beer in the greater Coeur d'Alene area. While Daft Badger has been asked to bring their beer into Washington, the young company — which Douhy owns along with Jake Capaul and Keith Bertram — is most interested in keeping their taproom busy and full of beer.
  • Downdraft Brewing

    Although Downdraft's name is partly inspired by the Pacific Northwest's unpredictable weather, the brewery's beers are much steadier in nature. From a dry-hopped amber to a malty brown ale, Downdraft offers both a regular lineup and a rotating selection of beermaker "experiments" and special brews. (2015)

    Dry Fly was the first distillery in the state to take advantage of a 2007 law allowing craft distilleries. It produces small batches of gin, wheat vodka, whiskey and now bourbon. Its vodka was the first to start raking in awards, but the gin and whiskey have quickly followed suit, winning more spirits competitions than we have room to list here. (July 2013)
