New bakery, brewery opens in Spokane

Bread and beer unite at Spokane’s newest business.

The Grain Shed officially opened Friday morning after a successful soft launch last weekend. The business is divided into a small brewery and tasting room, along with a bakery and cafe. Co-owner and brewery Teddy Benson said all the grains used to brew and bake are local. Most are grown at Palouse Heritage Farms, near Endicott.

The specialized loaves are created using a wood-fired, custom built oven. Benson said the brewery also uses grain that’s malted in the Spokane area.

Benson emphasized the importance of creating a business that welcomes everyone and connects them to their community.

“We wanted to make it something that everybody would enjoy, yet is made with the highest quality that we can. High quality ingredients, locally sourced, organically grown, so that we have something that people can come and eat and feel good about eating,” Benson said.

The Grain Shed is located at 1026 East Newark in Spokane. Hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
