The brewery scene around Spokane has expanded a lot in recent years. We’ve reported before on the Inland Northwest. See our previous posts about the Inland Northwest Ale Trail. Now we share news that Spokane and the surrounding area will celebrate the first-ever Spokane Beer Week from May 11th thru May 17th.
In addition to Spokane Beer Week’s exciting array of beer-focused events, one event showcases how the breweries in the region are working together to build a brewing community. On May 12th from 4pm – 7pm, 12 local breweries will unveil 6 collaboration beers at No-Li Brewhouse against the backdrop of the beautiful Spokane River.
Here’s the announcement from No-Li Brewhouse:
Spokane, WA…While Portland is a buzz for the annual Craft Brewers Conference, the Inland Northwest is creating a buzz of its own. Come May 11, all roads will lead to Spokane…and the first official Spokane Craft Beer Week!
With an abundance of exciting events already slated to entertain the masses from May 11th – 17th, perhaps the most anticipated is one that brings together 13 breweries and paints a vibrant picture of craft beer in the Inland Northwest.
On May 12th from 4pm – 7pm, 12 local breweries will unveil 6 collaboration beers at No-Li Brewhouse against the backdrop of the beautiful Spokane River.
“This event is really indicative of how far Spokane craft beer has come,” says No-Li’s Callet Ioane. “It’s humbling to be a part of the evolution of the beer culture here and we’re extraordinarily proud to see our local brewing community thrive. We’re excited for the future!”
Among the participating innovators are Big Barn, English Setter, Iron Goat, Laughing Dog, MickDuffs, Paradise Creek, Ramblin’ Road, River City, Steam Plant, Twelve String, Waddell’s and Wallace. These creative teams have promised to deliver distinct beer experiences ranging from a Belgian golden strong and a raspberry gose to No-Li’s Taylor Shellfish collaboration Oyster Stout brewed with fresh Pacific oysters. While guests enjoy the brews, they will also be entertained by the well-known Spokane band, The Trailer Park Girls.
Beer, music, food and fire pits…all along the River. Not bad for a Tuesday!
