River City Brewing 4th Anniversary Party

River City Brewing 4th Anniversary Party
January 28th, 3-10pm

River City Brewing had an awesome 2016. We sold more beer and had more fun than any prior year. As such, we are pleased to be putting our fourth year in the history books and are ready to celebrate. Join us Saturday, January 28th, 3 – 10 pm for some special beers, original tunes from L.O.S. (Left Over Soul) and excellent food provided by One Night Stand BBQ. The party is in the Tap Room and the Brewery, so we will be celebrating come snow or shine.

Stay tuned for the beer lineup for the evening!

During 2016, we continued experimenting with new beers, hops and techniques, we won several awards, and we expanded our sales territory, but mostly we made great beer day in and day out and had it served in great places in communities all over the Northwest. We are proud of the brew team, sales team (one person is a “team,” right?) and our bartenders who put a face on our brewery every day in the Tap Room. We have some more good stuff rolling out in 2017, but first, let’s celebrate!

Here are the details: Our event is all ages, and better yet, no cover! Beer tickets will be $2.50 each - 1 ticket for an 8oz pour, and 2 tickets for a 16oz pour.

For River City Brewing, 2016 was a home run. We hope you join us on January 28th to celebrate another great year of brewing beer for our friends, neighbors and communities all over the Northwest.

October 9th: Spokane Bike Talk Happy Hour

Come for the Happy Hour, stay for the Bike Talk! It’s a chance to connect and an excuse to get together and talk bikes at the local and state level.

Come connect with your statewide bike organizations Sunday, Oct. 9 with Barb Chamberlain (Chief Strategic Officer); Tarrell Kullaway (Senior Director of Membership & Development), and Ed Ewing (Director of the Major Taylor Project).

You’ll get a brief overview of the merger of Washington Bikes and Cascade Bicycle Club and how both now work statewide with new roles. Learn a bit about Cascade's statewide work in bike education, school-based youth programming, and the Major Taylor Project and how the role of endorsing political candidates moved from Cascade to WA Bikes.

Local bike leaders will share updates on projects and programs. We’ll celebrate the wins (like state funding that extended the Centennial Trail) and talk about what’s needed to grow and improve bicycling for all.

Light snacks and a pitcher or two of social beverages provided by Washington Bikes and Cascade Bicycle Club with generous assistance from Gage and crew. Email to let us know you’re coming and help us plan refreshments. Many thanks to River City Brewing Owner Gage Stromberg for his support of the event!

Thursday, September 8, 2016


Spokane has long needed an event to highlight the amazing restaurants and food products sold in the Inland Northwest. Thousands dine-out daily and default to corporate chain pizza or gas station hot dogs.  We've always felt it's not because they truly enjoy these foods... it's because they plainly aren't aware of the amazing culinary choices in our community.  

Restaurant Wars aims to put the best of the best in one
place for one night. The event is FREE to attend and offers
affordable priced braclets so everyone can try small plates
from 8 DIFFERENT top local restaurants. Stay for the live
music, chef demos, beer garden and farmers market atmosphere. 

Come enjoy and eat from 4:00 to 8:00pm in Kendall Yards this Saturday, September 10th!
