American Craft Beer Week


Looking for an excuse to go out (or stay at home) and drink some quality beer? If so, look no further than the American Craft Beer Week which is happening right now!

Now apparently there aren’t many… any… events happening in our fair city, but don’t let that stop you from giving local breweries some love. Northern Lights, for example, has a nitro stout going right now, and that can’t be bad. C.I. Shenanigans, meanwhile, just launched their seasonal, and those might be worth checking out. I’m sure Coeur d’Alene Brewing Company might have something going too.

The grand question is: When will we see something from Budge Brothers, the new Spokane brewery we’re anxiously anticipating?
