Beer Events Galore!

We have a bunch of beer events coming up on the next several weeks.  Come join us, drink some beer and support some great local causes.

October 5 - A Girl Scout's Fundraiser with Girl Scout Cookies and Beer:     

The inaugural Craft Beer and Cookie Fest scheduled on Saturday, October 5, 2013 at the Girl Scout Program Center, will pair great craft beer with the iconic Girl Scout Cookie to raise funds and awareness for the nearly 2,500 Girl Scouts in the Spokane area and the 8,200 Girl Scouts in their council.  There will be at least five breweries participating this year and a live band to play throughout the event. This is a 21 and older event that goes from 4pm-8pm Saturday. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. This includes a tasting mug, three 4oz pours and a brat.

You can purchase tickets through Brown Paper Tickets ( or through the Girl Scout office at 509-747-8091. This event will be held at 1404 N Ash St, Spokane.

October 5- “Crosstoberfest” Cyclocross Race:
Also on Saturday will be the first stop of the Inland Northwest Cyclocross Race Series being held in Sandpoint Idaho with the races starting at 9am, and the beer pouring at noon.  This is a great race to be a part of as well as a great spectator opportunity since it is a cyclocross bike race with a beerfest.  The event is in support of Team Autism 24/7, a non profit dedicated to helping families living with autism to have a better quality of life. They do this through programs that educate, create awareness and create a sense of community for families, professionals, and providers.  There will be four breweries (River City Brewing, Laughing Dog, 219er and MickDuff’s), two pubs (Eichardt’s and Pour Authority), and one winery (Pend Orielle Winery) participating in creating the BeerFest part of the Event.  There will also be live music, food, an announcer, and a raffle. 
The event will be held at the University of Idaho, N. Boyer Avenue, Sandpoint Idaho.  For more info: 
October 6 - Lands Council Brews Cruise:
This Sunday, the Lands Council is organizing their Third Annual Brews Cruise.  Unlike most "cruise", this one does not involve a boat, but involves pedaling around for your own people powered cruise.  The event will begin and end at the Saranac Public House and will include stops at our brewery (complete with behind the scenes look at our brewing facility) and Budge Brothers.  This 21+ event starts at 1 pm and includes live music at the finish line.

Saranac Public House is located at 21 W. Main Avenue in downtown Spokane.  For more info:

October 12 - EWU Library Roaring ‘20s Oktoberfest:
Eastern Washington University is simply jazzed about the Roaring '20s theme this year for the EWU Library Oktoberfest on October 12th. They are telling people “Don't be a flat tire, put on your Fedora or headdress and come join the rest of the guys and gals. This awesome “swanky” event helps raise some funds for the Collection Endowment Fund. All proceeds go to the EWU Libraries' Collection Endowment Fund to purchase books, journals, and electronic resources for students, faculty, staff and the EWU community at large. The event will include a swanky meal and dessert, spiffy beer and wine tastings.  This year they've got wine from the pros- Latah Creek Wineries and Walla Walla Vintners.  River City Brewing and  No-Li Brewhouse will be serving up some great (LOCAL!) beers to sample.  There will also be live rag-time music by some swinging cats- the Chris Grant Quartet!
This fun event will be Saturday October 12th from 5pm-10:30pm at the JFK Library on the Cheney Campus.  For more info: and 

October 12- March of Dimes Signature Chef Event:
One of the best events hosted by Red Lion Hotels Corporation is their annual March of Dimes Signature Chefs event held on Saturday October 12th from 6pm-10pm.  The March of Dimes annual Signature Chefs Auction returns with delectable tastings from Spokane's finest chefs and the opportunity to bid on unique and desirable auction packages, as well as tastings from local wineries and River City Brewing. All proceeds benefit the March of Dimes mission of improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. This years event marks the 75th anniversary of March of Dimes saving lives so it is an especially important event for them this year.

October 19 - 18th Annual OctoBREWfest for MS
OctoBREWfest is a fun-filled evening of Brews & Bids that features tastings of a variety of microbrews from the most popular northwest microbreweries and both a silent and live auction will offer a variety of items for auction goers to bid on.  Every year, 100% of the money raised from the OctoBREWfest event goes to support the efforts of the Inland Northwest Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.  Sixty percent stays in the Inland Northwest to provide services to over 2500 local people who have MS and their families, and 40% goes to funding increasingly hopeful research. Admittance for the event, by ticket, is open to anyone over twenty-one years of age.
