Spokane To Get Ousted CdA Brewery

The owners of Coeur d'Alene Brewing Co., which had to close last year when their building's landlord didn't renew their lease, have re-formed and will open another Brewery this time is Spokane.The new brewery will be called River City Brewing and will be located at 1325 W. 1st Ave on the west side of Downtown Spokane.The beers from River City Brewing will be available at a few locations but unfortunately not directly from River City as the Brewery will not feature a tap room or pub attached/Inland Northwest Business Watch.

OTV: Another Upscale Watering Hole

From the “It Remains to Be Seen How Well This One Flies” Dept., I have it on good authority that the deconstruction of the former TW Fishers/Coeur d'Alene Brewing Company building that is going on at the moment will lead to it's re-opening as a fancy-schmancy Martini and Tapas restaurant this spring. Maybe I just run in the wrong circles (PBR anyone?), but I honestly can't imagine the need for another sort of place in the downtown area place where one must spend and entire days wages to enjoy a meal and an adult beverage. Certainly, the locals just love to complain about the texture of downtown Coeur d'Alene is increasingly being geared specifically for Touristas with hundred dollar bills flowing from their  Prada handbags, and the opening of this place (name as yet unknown) will sure give them more fodder to bitch and moan about/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More here. (SR file photo/Kathy Plonka: Landon Weichal of Ginno Construction watches razing of Coeur d'Alene Brewing Company.)

Question: Would you rather have the old Coeur d'Alene Brewing Company at 2nd & Lakeside? Or another “fancy-schmancy Martini and Tapas restaurant” this spring?

Coeur d’Alene Brewing Shutting Down

Coeur d’Alene Brewing Co. (which operated for quite awhile @ Lakeside & 2nd (across from the Coeur d’Alene Press office) Facebooks: “The news nobody wanted. We regretfully announce that we are unable to secure a new location and suitable financing to re-open the brewery and brewpub. The assets will be available for sale hopefully to someone who will re-open locally. For purchase information, contact: We will miss you and our beer.” (H/T: Get Out! North Idaho)

Question: Did you frequent Coeur d’Alene Brewing Co. often?
