  • Budge Brothers Brewery

    2018 E. Riverside Ave. Spokane - East


    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.

  • No-Li Brewhouse

    1003 E. Trent Ave. Spokane - East


    Is there anything better than drinking an ice-cold beer by the water? You can do just that at No-Li Brewhouse, the brewery that created “Spokane Style” beers and has seen their bottles shipped across the country. Enjoy one of their “Usual Suspects,” offered all year round, or a rotating seasonal craft brew, while taking full advantage of their outdoor patio that overlooks the Spokane River. Try their newly released Switch Hitter Golden Ale, which debuted earlier this summer in place of the ever-loved Creme Ale. The brewers at No-Li love to experiment with flavors, so order the “randall,” which changes every few days, and prepare for taste-bud excitement. The randall is a chamber that connects to the keg, freshly infusing beer with whatever they decide to put in it that day.

  • Orlison Brewing Co.

    12921 W. 17th Ave. Airway Heights


    True to their motto, Orlison brews no evil. What was primarily a production brewery, shipping kegs and cans to bars and stores around the Northwest, recently opened a downtown Spokane taproom as part of their current expansion. The beers, primarily lagers, are now making their way to Rocky Mountain states and just arrived on the East Coast; they’re also now being served in Canada. The taproom allows Orlison to experiment, especially with non-lager creations, and get customer feedback before putting a new beer onto their canning line.

  • Paradise Creek Brewery

    245 SE Paradise St. Moscow/Pullman


    Paradise Creek Brewery is “kind of a big deal” in the Palouse region, doling delicious and hilariously named brews out to the thirsty hordes of college students. A Paradise favorite, Huckleberry Pucker Shandy, and Oh Beehave!, a honey pale ale, are almost out of season, so roll in before the September chill hits. But September also heralds Paradise’s new seasonal addition, Alpha Madness. This fall, 160 pounds of fresh hops will ferment into a once-a-year, super-special brew, loaded up into the truck and dumped into the batch within the same day. Named after the enzyme in beer that produces the bitter taste, Alpha Madness is sure to jive with the great selection of timeless beers of this staple Palouse brewery.

  • River City Brewing

    121 S. Cedar St. Spokane - Downtown


    River City Brewing has earned the loyalty of local craft beer drinkers with their consistent quality and friendly taproom, and it’s been keeping them busy — the brewery has been winning awards at beer festivals left and right. Their staple River City Red won gold in the American Amber Ale category at the 2014 Washington Beer Awards, and their Congratulator Doppelbock won silver in the American Strong Ale category at the WBA this year. They’re about to roll out distribution of their most popular beers in southern Idaho, and they’ve also been experimenting with new styles, like nitro beer and wine barrel-aged Huckleberry Ale. They’re hoping to begin bottling brews by the end of the year, and plan to ramp up production to 1,200 to 1,500 barrels in the next year.

  • Selkirk Abbey Brewing Company

    6180 E. Seltice Way Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    If your soul is in need of a little cleansing, head to Selkirk Abbey and enjoy a pint of Guilt. As you savor the flavor of DOMA coffee in this Belgian-style porter, think about what you’ve done. Then, with images of angels peering down at you, let yourself off the hook: forgiveness is a virtue and you’re in an award-winning brewery. They just traded in two 15-barrel fermenters and will continue producing their award-winning Belgians in fermenters that have double the capacity. The brewery will be releasing their only non-Belgian, Selkirk Grace, next month, and a batch of Saint Joseph — an imperial saison that isn’t brewed every year — will be ready around the holidays.

  • Slate Creek Brewing Co.

    1710 N. 4th St., Ste. 115 Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    In 2013, brothers Ryan and Jason Wing turned an old car wash into a brewery, creatng a secret watering hole for local craft beer “explorers,” much like the little-known North Idaho tributary that Slate Creek Brewing Co. is named after. Two and a half years later, it seems the cat’s out of the bag. Their popular brews, which all have names that keep with the brewery’s earthy-rustic vibe, will begin statewide distribution in the next few months. Crowd favorites include the Norse Nectar Juniper Ale and the Mountain Hop Imperial IPA. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff is friendly — it’s no wonder that readers voted it North Idaho’s Best Brewery in the 2015 Inlander Readers Poll.

  • Steam Plant Brewing Co.

    159 S. Lincoln St. Spokane - Downtown


    Not long after the property was turned from an industrial behemoth to a proudly preserved icon of the Spokane skyline, Steam Plant Brewing Co. started making beer there. Patrons of the brewery — located at the bottom of a flight of stairs, smack-dab in the center of the plant, where the afternoon sunlight illuminates the bar top from the cathedral-like atrium above — can even take a peek through an observation window to see Steam Plant’s 10-barrel system at work. With a lineup of standard faves always on tap, like the popular Double Stack Stout, enjoy a pint at the bar, in a growler to go or get a keg for your next big get-together.

  • Trickster's Brewing Co.

    3850 N. Schrieber Way Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls


    Trickster’s is off the beaten path in an industrial area of Coeur d’Alene, but expertly crafted brews and word of mouth have kept the tasting room busy since its opening three years ago. The brewery, named after the havoc-wreaking “trickster” coyote demigod of Native American folklore, is sleek and cool — perfect for a pint or two in the summer. Owner Matt Morrow got his start in the booming Colorado brewing scene, and it’s clear he’s brought some of that excellence to the Inland Northwest. His Bear Trap Brown English brown ale won a bronze medal from the North American Brewers Association this year, and three of his most popular brews will soon be distributed across Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho.

  • Twelve String Brewing Co.

    11616 E. Montgomery Dr., Ste. 26 Spokane Valley


    Given the name of his craft-brewing operation, the instrument-filled décor of his vibrant Spokane Valley tasting room and the labels on his wide array of beers — Jam Session IPA, Drop D Stout and the like — Terry Fackler clearly has a maestro’s approach to his product. That tasting room typically keeps about 18 beers on tap, ranging from year-round favorites to adventurous experiments with fruits like mango, dry hops and barrel aging. Soon, Twelve String will be found at far more locations across the Inland Northwest, thanks to a new focus on distribution and a new Spokane Valley location Fackler recently bought that will also facilitate bottling a few 12 String favorites when it’s up and running.

  • Wallace Brewing Company

    610 Bank St., Wallace Rural Idaho


    Wallace, Idaho, has always appreciated its beer as well as its women. At the Wallace Brewing Company tasting room, the two come together in a tasteful, albeit cheeky, manner. The renovated downtown space offers an up-close, windowed look at the brewery as well as old-school pin-up pictures along its walls. General manager Chase Sanborn says his beer is a celebration of the Silver Valley; all of the hops come from his own farm in Wallace, and the 28 pounds of huckleberries used in every batch of Huckleberry Shandy are sourced locally. Sanborn says expansion has been a continual process since inception, and Wallace’s beers can be found throughout Washington, Idaho and Montana — including Total Wine & More in Spokane.
