Ale Trail celebrates success with expansion

SPOKANE, Wash. - Your mission, should you choose to accept it: visit 12 breweries across the Inland Northwest and drink a beer at each one.

It's all part of the newly expanded Inland Northwest Ale Trail which has expanded to 27 destinations ranging from Yakima to Clarkston.

"It's an up and coming booming industry, especially in Spokane," says No-Li Brewhouse Executive-Chef Branden Moreau. "We want to build this to be a premier craft beer destination in the Pacific Northwest."

Will Spear of the Ramblin' Road Craft Brewery adds the Ale Trail has been a huge boost to business.

"The Ale Trail has been huge for Spokane Breweries. Probably every day that we're open, 40% of the customers that are here have their Ale Trail map and they're asking for their stamp and they're saying where should we go next," says Spear.

The prize for collecting 12 stamps is a 16 mini-growler called a grunt.
