Best Breweries in Spokane
We have listed out the best breweries Spokane has to offer; let’s see what we have!
Perry Street Brewing
For a cheerful and laid-back feel, visit Perry Street Brewing. Located in a modern facility with huge windows, an outdoor patio, and a tasting room, the brewery offers an undisturbed view of the heart of the South Perry District. They use a unique method to prepare their beers, called Cryo Hops. This helps in eliminating bitterness from the hops and enhances the citrus flavor.
They have a wide range of craft beers available. We recommend trying their American IPA. It has pine and citrusy aroma notes and tastes like pineapple and mango.
No-Li Brewhouse is a family-owned and operated independent brewery that prides itself on doing justice to the natural resources and crafting traditional artisan beers that brings folks together. They take great care in every step of the process and ensure the final product is unique, refreshing, and innovative.
No-Li Brewhouse has something for everyone, from beer and cocktails to seltzers and hard-hitting bourbon. We recommend their Born and Raised IPA. It is made from harvested hops and barley and has an earthy flavor with a subtle pine aroma.
Iron Goat Brewing
Greg and Paul, the founders of Iron Goat Brewing, had the idea for this brewery while sitting at a local bar and sharing their mutual interests in motorcycles and home brewing. Now, Iron Goat Brewing is a full-fledged brewery with multiple craft beer options, taprooms, an in-house kitchen, and more.
Try their Head Butt IPA, which has a sweet spice malt aroma with a touch of pine. Pair it up with their fig and blue cheese pizza and a charcuterie board if you feel fancy.
The Grain Shed
The Grain Shed is more than just a brewery; it is a love letter to the unique and rare ingredients that are found in Spokane. This brewery focuses on the ingredients, process, and people and on crafting exceptional beers that are flavorful and drinkable.
Their most popular craft beer is the Panettone stout. It has a subtle raisin and dark malt aroma and tastes chocolaty. Pair it with exquisite bread and pasta, such as the Chocolate Babka, Turkey Red, and Purple Egyptian, all prepared at the facility.
Whistle Punk Brewing
The father-son team Craig and Matt Hanson operate the Whistle Punk Brewing Company. From traditional ales to lagers, the craft, process, and taste are all inspired by the Pacific Northwest. The interior is decorated by brick and stone walls, unfinished wood furniture, and warm lights to give it a rough and rustic look.
You can choose from various styles, but we recommend their Czech Pilsner. It is clean, clear, and dry and has a unique flavor profile due to top yeast.
River City Brewing
With an expert team of craft beer enthusiasts, River City Brewing delivers quality beer from the fields right to your glass. They have it all here, from award-winning options like City Red and Midnight Marmot Stout to a traditional taproom with staple beers. You can discover more about the brewing process in the traditional taproom. Moreover, they also offer events, outdoor seating, music festivals, and more.
Try their Huckleberry Ale, Hopped Pale ale, and Red Ale the next time you visit.
Black Label Brewing
A small brewery putting out big flavors, the Black Label Brewing Company is locally owned and uses locally grown and organic ingredients to get you the finest-quality beers. With staple beers, unique concoctions, and food shops nearby, it is the perfect place to spend your evening.
We recommend trying their Espresso Stout, Red Ale, and Mimosas.
Mountain Lakes Brewing
The Inland Northwest has over 50 mountain lakes and offers multiple outdoor opportunities. From paddling the lake to trekking the mountains, they aim to bring it all together with great beer and company. The Mountain Lakes brewery is family and pet-friendly. You can bring your own food, order, or try the in-house local delicacies.
We recommend trying their Word To Your Mother cream ale. It has a strong bready and vanilla aroma and tastes like sweet biscuits. Pair it up with their yummy finger food options like hot dogs and tater tots.
Steam Plant Brewery
Formerly a functional steam plant, the industrial structure has now been renovated as a commercial space currently being used as a brewery, restaurant, and event venue. This beautiful building houses a fine dining restaurant with wood-burning ovens and seasonal foods. It also has a wide capacity for indoor and outdoor events, and you can even stay at the premises since it also serves as a hotel.
The Steam Plant Brewery has partnered with the Grain Shed to introduce uniquely crafted beers and enhance the fine dining experience. Pair the drinks with a Margherita pizza, salad, or smokestack burger.
