Did you know Spokane is home to 31 different breweries along the Inland Northwest Ale Trail?
I didn't either. In fact, these 31 locations have been popping up over the last ten years to provide amazing beer that is changing the drinking and dining environment of Spokane and the rest of the area.
Each brewery brings a unique flavor and experience that tells us something about their culture and belief of how beer should taste. Most of all, each one of these establishments is creating a culture of amazing craft beer that is leveling up the ale experience here in Spokane.
Today, we are going to feature one of these great breweries that Spokane has to offer, and hopefully, it will give you a new option for your next trip out!
Mountain Lakes Brewing Company
Mountain Lakes Brewing Company boasts something not many breweries throw around these days. They say that they have the beer you have never tasted before and believe it or not, they follow through on their promise.
This brewery has been sweeping Spokane with seasonal offerings like the Maple Bar Cream Ale, Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwich Amber Ale, and Jalapeno-Lime-Cucumber Blonde. They've won accolades such as the 2018 Inlander Best New Brewery and the 2019 Inland NW Craft Beer Festival Winner.
What's more is their mission statement for beer and how they can relate to the Inland Northwest:
The Inland Northwest is home to more than 50 mountain lakes that surround our beautiful city. Here, the outdoors are a part of our daily lives, and we believe that adventures should be shared. Great beer only complements that mission — whether on the trail, or in the taproom, we believe that good beer makes good community, and Spokane is one of the very best!
This place has been quite the surprise to me and I love sharing another great brewery in Spokane, below are some more details!
Mountain Lakes Brewing Company is located on the corner of Riverside and Browne just west of Division Street and the University area in Spokane. This is a hot spot and most of the parking here is street parking so come prepared.
Hours of Operation
While a lot of the taprooms and breweries are open seven days a week, Mountain Lakes Brewing Company is open two days a week at this time. Their hours of operation are Fridays 4:00 pm to close and Saturdays 3:00 pm to close. Though they are hoping to expand hours soon.
Menu and Beer List
They don't serve food. But they welcome people bringing in their own food whether from home or ordered in from other local businesses. The common plan for food is ordering in through UberEats and DoorDash. Their beer list rotates like most breweries and they don't have an updated list online.
