South Perry gets a new craft brewery this fall, that’s a good thing

Perhaps we care a little too much about the South Perry District?  We certainly gave plenty of space in Thursday's paper to plans announced by Ben and Christy Lukes to open Perry Street Brewing in the neighborhood this fall.

OK, we plead guilty as charged. Craft brewing may not build a thriving local economy, but we see it as a validation of the great American pasttime, hanging out and being social with friends and strangers. As long as good examples of craft brewpubs pop up across the region, we think Spokane's a good place to raise a family — or a stein.

The illustration/rendering here of the business, at the corner of 11th and Perry, is from architect Matthew Collins, whose firm UpTic Studios is designing the building.
