Looking for something to do while family’s in town for the holidays? Need a break from last-minute shopping? A night out with pals for Friends-mas? Enter: beer! This multi-week brewery crawl in downtown Spokane’s West End District is a tasty, low-stakes challenge that tasks craft beer lovers with a visit to each of seven participating venues. Purchase a beer at each, scan a QR code, and after visiting all seven, you’ll get a code to redeem a special West End Brewery District glass mug. The system will even track which places you still need to visit before crossing all seven off your list, which are as follows: The Grain Shed, Common Language, River City, Iron Goat, Whistle Punk, Golden Handle and Brick West. Many of the venues are all ages, and have plenty of special events planned heading into the new year. Visit the link below for details.
