We now have the list of beers that will pour at next weekend’s Inland NW Craft Beer Festival in Spokane (Friday, September 21 and Saturday, September 22). In all, 42 breweries are salted to pour over 180 beers. The complete list is below.
For those of us living in the Seattle area, or anywhere west of the mountains, the Inland NW Craft Beer Festival features a whole bunch of great breweries with which we are unfamiliar. For instance, Big Barn Brewing of Mead, WA. It was a farm long before it also became a brewery. Big Barn Brewing is bringing 10 beers to the festival, including a fresh hop beer brewed with freshly harvest hops off their own hop farm — the first and only commercial hop farm in Spokane County. They’re also bringing a blackberry porter brewed with blackberries raised on their own farm.
That’s just one example. There are a lot more stories to be told. Westsiders should peruse the list carefully. Perhaps it will pique your curiosity and convince you to make an overnight trip to Spokane for the festival.

BREWERY AND BEER LIST
7 Seas Brewing-Tacoma
1) Rude Parrot Single IPA (ABV 5.9% / IBU 75)
Loud, sassy, and relentless, the Rude Parrot has an insatiable appetite for hops! Brewed with Vienna, light Crystal, and a touch of Honey malt, this golden hued IPA is aggressively hopped with Simcoe and Citra hops. A big juicy, tropical fruit, citrusy hop aroma yields way to an off dry, pleasantly bitter finish
2) 7 Seas’ Pilsner (ABV 5.2% / IBU 32)
This NW Pilsner pays homage to those local brewers who came long before us, a shout-out to our home, the 253. Our NW spin on a classic pilsner-style lager. Brewed with NW Pale and Pilsner malt, hopped with Sterling and Cascade, this brew is 100% Washington. An extremely refreshing, dry, and crisp authentic Pilsner with that classic mineral, cracker like finish. Executed with precision, patience, and care, yielding a truly premium Pilsner.
3) Never Say Die Nomadic IPA (ABV 6.3% / IBU 72)
A simple malt base of pilsner and 2-row malts, this golden hued IPA delivers drifting hop aromas of fresh mango and tangerine. Softly bitter with a light/medium body, this IPA is lively, clean, and decidedly aromatic. This Nomadic IPA seeks to change path each year, traversing new territories, and never settling.
Bellweather Brewing Company-Spokane
1) Old World Saison (ABV 9.2%)
Imperial saison gruit… traditional Old World ingredients make up this strong saison. The grain mashed for 24 hours to get just a little funky, but not sour. Botanicals went into the mash and the boil. Botanicals come out even, no single dominant flavor. Belgian yeast esters drink as mild bubblegum, banana, and black pepper.
2) Det Norske (ABV 6.6%)
Norwegian farmhouse red ale… traditional practices were upheld as much as possible to make this homage to Nordic brewing. Kveik (Norwegian farmhouse yeast) was sourced from a farmhouse brewery in Norway at Gjernes Farmstead. A grist of barley and oats finish slightly sweet to hold up modest additions of juniper, rosemary, caraway seed, hops, and gentian root.
3) Rotating Tap
We’ll be tapping small-batch and specialty beers throughout the festival. Viking spruce ale, raw ales, sour ales, Bretta ales… anything goes. See the tap list and schedule at our tent! Abv will vary per beer and will be posted.

Big Barn Brewing–Mead
1) HONEY SAGE (ABV 5.3% / IBU 22)
This lager gives an herbal twist to our classic Mead Honey Lager. We take the standard honey lager and add a cup or two of dried, home-grown sage directly into the keg and let it do its work. Excellent when paired with sausage, steak, or other meats.
2) GREENBLUFF STRAWBERRY BLONDE (ABV 6.0% / IBU 10)
This strawberry summer ale is the first in our lineup of farm seasonals. Maybe not Strawberry Fields Forever as the Beatles claim, but with nearly 100 pounds of fresh berries per batch, we have just enough strawberry to make this blonde special.
3) APRICOT WIT (ABV 4.6% / IBU 11)
Join us as we celebrate the transition from summer to fall with the release of a farm favorite – Apricot Wit. This lightly hopped German wheat beer is greatly enhanced by mashed apricots added into the fermenter. With a light body, characteristic wheat-beer depth, and fruity overtones accentuated by subtle apricot notes, this farm brew is sure to deliver a refreshing and satisfying experience, especially on a beautiful sunny day!
4) GOLDEN PUMPKIN ALE (ABV 6.3% / IBU 13)
Few pumpkin ales can offer what ours does here at Big Barn Brewing. Our home-grown, freshly-harvested sugar pumpkins are roasted with seeds and all until caramelized then steeped with a hearty grain bill to make this brew truly golden. The carefully balanced 2-row barley, roasted pumpkins, cinnamon, molasses, ginger, clove, and real vanilla pair to make this a superb fall seasonal microbrew.
5) RASPBERRY BRAGGOT (ABV 10.5% / IBU 15)
This brand new release from Big Barn is a full-bodied honey beer with subtle raspberry notes. A malt-forward body harmonizes with the sweetness of farm fresh honey and finishes with lingering fruit notes from fresh-picked raspberries we grew here on the family farm.
6) MISS MAGGIE’S LAVENDER IPA (ABV 6.1% / IBU 81)
A surprisingly spectacular fusion of Middachten culinary lavender and Amarillo hops make this uniquely floral IPA something special. We collaborated with our neighbors at the beautiful Fleur de Provence lavender farm on Green Bluff to source the lavender for this delicious IPA. A prominent bitterness at 81 IBUs is balanced by the smooth and subtle floral notes of the lavender harmonizing with the equally floral and citrus aroma of a Northwest favorite–Amarillo
7) BLACKBERRY PORTER
This porter does great justice to our brewery’s farming roots. Our farm-fresh blackberries make their appearance via the addition of our homemade blackberry purée just at the end of the boil. A hint of blackberry on the nose is followed by a hearty porter body. As in most of our fruit beers, the blackberry undertones remain subtle yet just strong enough to make this an outstanding fall seasonal.
8) “JUST FRESH” IPA
As farmers who brew, or brewers who farm, we love to blend the two arts whenever we can. We boast Spokane County’s 1st and only commercial hop farm. This new fresh hop IPA from this years crop will be a surprise to us all….as it isn’t even in brew tank. Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops will reveal their secrets as we harvest.
9) BARREL AGED BLACK DOG STOUT (ABV 10.5% / IBU 28)

Dirt Road Rye is a nicely balanced Rye IPA with our classic rural roots making it an exceptional addition to your taps.

All this and the charm of a Woodinville Rye Whiskey barrel!

3) Freshie Main Ave IPA (ABV 7.8% / IBU 60)
This is a fresh hopped take on our staple beer The Main Ave IPA, which is more of a balanced maltier IPA. With this version though we taimed the Caramel malt down a touch and dried it out a little further to help the hops shine. We used over 40 pounds of locally grown Cascade Fresh Hops throughout the whole process.
4) Candyland Brute IPA (ABV 5.5% / IBU 69)
With this IPA we crushed, and oven toasted over 30 pounds of Hemp seeds, and threw them in the mash. We then fermented practically all the sugars out to leave a clean crisp IPA thats hopped with a blend of Summit, 007- Golden Hop, and LemonNaughty Hops. To finish this dank Hemp Brute IPA we then collaborated with a local Farmer and had the Terpenes stripped off of one of their strands “Candyland”. After that all of us had a tasty blending session to complete the final beer. There is NO THC in this beer just smells like a tasty nugget.
Boundary Bay Brewery-Bellingham

As a straightforward, lighter bodied ale, our blonde was brewed specially for summer-time, however, it compliments any meal nicely.

Smooth and naturally carbonated, it has a unique blend of malts (including a secret dark malts!) which provide just enough backbone to balance it’s big hop character. Complex, delicious and refreshing! As they say, a bit of wood makes a big difference.
