Spokane tapped as under-rated “beer ” city


If wine, just isn’t your thing, It’s a great time to be a beer lover. Five years ago, there were about 3,000 breweries in the United States — a number which more than doubled by the end of 2017. In fact, between 2012 and 2016, not a single state in the U.S. saw a decline in th number of breweries. Thanks to its surge in popularity, great beer is more accessible than ever: today, 83 percent of Americans live within ten miles of a local brewery. The website, “Livability” set out to find “underrated” great beer cities, and, they say, Spokane is one of them! Their article says “collaboration is the name of the game for brewing in Spokane, so budding brewers will truly enjoy the community…. Not only are there dozens of breweries in the area, but it’s home to Steel Barrel, the state’s only “incubator brewery.” Before making the investment of a brick-and-mortar location, aspiring brewers can share equipment with other breweries. Once they’ve established themselves, arranging a permanent location of their own becomes infinitely easier.” “Livability” explores what makes small-to-medium sized cities great– so, of course, great local beer is right up the website’s alley.Get your weather forecast from people that actually live in your community.
