After a soft launch over the weekend, the Grain Shed in Spokane’s South Perry neighborhood will finally officially open for regular service on Friday.
Look for a variety of breads, croissants and avocado toast with zhoug, a spicy herb sauce. Beer made at the on-site will also be available.
The Grain Shed is divided into two spaces: a nano brewery and tasting room, and bake shop and cafe featuring a custom-made wood-fired oven.
During the soft launch Saturday and Sunday, food and beer sold out quickly. The shop was also open Monday morning with a limited selection while supplies lasted – until around noon.
Culture Breads specializes in loaves made from grain grown within 100 miles of the shop, where it’s milled and baked into bread using retained heat in a wood-fired oven. The brewery also uses local grain that’s malted locally.
Owner and bread baker Shaun Thompson Duffy and his business partners were originally planning to open the storefront as early as January. Construction and other delays pushed it back.
There’s been a lot of interest in the shop in recent months. And, Monday, even after bread and croissants were all sold out, neighbors and potential customers kept popping in to tour the spot and meet Duffy.
Bread is available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you’re interested in picking up a loaf or two on Friday – here’s a pro tip – get there early.
The Grain Shed is at 1026 E. Newark Ave. Hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
