The owners of Coeur d’Alene Brewing Co. say they’ve been unable to find a new building in Coeur d’Alene and will now brew beer only from the Steam Plant Grill in Spokane.
The owners include Spokane real estate developer Ron Wells and two stepsons, Gage and Spencer Stromberg.
Gage Stromberg said it became difficult to locate a building suited both for dining and for brewing beer.
He added the owners are looking to sell the entire business to another party who might want to restart the operation in North Idaho. They will continue operating a Moscow restaurant.
Stromberg said the second option, if the business isn’t sold, is to offer the brewing equipment to would-be buyers. “There is a lot of interest in the parts of the brewery if it isn’t sold as a package,” he said in an e-mail.
