Tricksters to celebrate third year in Lake City

Tricksters has done some growing up, and out, in its third year of operation. Since signing with major regional distributor Odom in August, the Coeur d’Alene brewery has increasingly focused on beer sales outside its cozy taproom.

The place will likely be packed when Tricksters celebrates its third anniversary on Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The star of the show will be a bourbon barrel-aged oatmeal stout, blended with some of the brewery’s big Daedric Druid stout and served on nitro.

“We’re excited about it,” says owner Matt Morrow. “It’s pretty bourbon-y”/Rick Bonino, On Tap. More here.

Question: Son-in-law Okie Doke and I recently enjoyed a sampler at Tricksters. Okie Doke is a beer snob. He gave Tricksters a thumbs up. I like wine a lot more than beer. So I'll take his word for it. Have you tried out Tricksters?
