I only buy local beers, WA, OR. ID, MT. I'd imagine there are others like me. A Spokane brewery who canned their Ales, Lager and/or Pilsner products. A unique prospect, also meaning this is for Spokane area consumption and readily available locally.
This is great. I am currently started my own charity w my company to continue the giving but only through the platform of marijuana. The giving trees.
They must be a bunch of morons. Ask Mark Richard, the Cowles, and the Downtown Spokane Partnership - downtown is a dangerous place full of bums and street kids, parking is impossible, and on and on and on...
(Yes, this is satire. I work downtown and regularly come back in the evening or on weekends with my family. The people that are scared of downtown don't get out much and will always probably feel more comfortable shopping at a big box, eating at a chain restaurant, and walking around a mall - they'll probably drive around for hours in a vast expanse of asphalt looking for a parking spot close to the door too. Takes all kinds I guess.)
It's wonderful to see efforts to revive and/or keep Native Languages alive. Great that the Inlander is reporting on these efforts. It would be cool if Salish classes could be offered through Spokane City Parks and Recreation, too. As a non-Native I would love to take some courses.
Orlison exclusively brews lagers and its Pilsner 37 is a fine beer. I read another article which claimed five new breweries will be opening in Spokane within the next year. Spokane is no Portland but it is becoming a beer haven in its own right.
@Michael, @burmy - Apparently Downdraft and Zythum don't count, either, not to mention several other places outside Spokane/Kootenai counties.
@patwick - What you're saying is true of most craft breweries everywhere, lagers tie up your tanks longer and you have to mess with an extra yeast. But as noted in the list above, Perry and Waddell's regularly do pilsners (and also a Vienna at Waddell's); Orlison does almost all lagers (though from ale-derived recipes), and cans most of them.
Don't put Daft Badger on the list, I don't want anyone to know!
If these brewers are sticking to ales, IPA's , porters and stouts, I could care less. There are damn few places one can purchase Spokane brewed Pilsner and Lager to drink with an ale. So far Sessions is my only option. I only drink LOCAL.
Beer, what beer. Spokane is not a beer hub or town, rather it is an Ale town. Who locally brews pilsner or lager which is easily available locally. The Hefeweizen is great in season but "Local Beer - non ales?... I'm waiting
No! Spokane is not a beer hub, rather it is an ale town. Who locally brews pilsner or lager? The hefeweisen (rp) is great in season but "Local Beer?... I'm waiting. anyone else??
Hey, I'm John Pagel, I own a solar shop based in Australia (http://www.sunstainable.com.au/) and I really want to express the support for this couple! We need more people like this! Keep going forward without looking at the haters!
Why wasn't North Idaho Mountain Brew in Wallace Idaho included on the list?
Please please please include Denver on your distribution!!
And on the 8th Day He created beer... Prosit!
I visited Spokane just last weekend,I was very disappointed to see 12 of the 24 taps at 24 Taps Burgers and brews were nothing special and mostly Anheuser Busch products. I didn't eat any food, but I did enjoy a few locals brews they did have on tap. As for fried chicken Ezells is amazing!! Try it once you will be addicted for life. Whisk is also good, Darin is a great guy.
Happiness is pretty good. Please don't eat there as it's easier to get a table right now.
It would be nice if there were non pop music (jazz/chamber/classical) that was performed at non-booze venues. Breweries and wineries seem the maiin places and I can't take my teen, who is the family musician.
