New brewery in West Central in works

A new brewery with an outdoor patio and taproom is coming to Spokane’s West Central neighborhood, according to plans making their way through City Hall.

Orcutt Brewery will be built on a vacant lot across the street from the car wash facility constructed in 2016 on a full city block at Gardner Avenue and Ash Street.

The 3,500-square-foot brewery and taproom at 1623 W. Gardner Ave. will be built on the southeast corner of Ash and Gardner. The project is estimated to cost $750,000.

Mickey and Linda Orcutt purchased two parcels for $190,000 in November 2017. Mickey Orcutt is the president and founder of Tamarack Software, which provides testing and assessment tools to educators.

Plans for the brewery are still in predevelopment conference with the city and have not yet been finalized.

Armando Hurtado, with Spokane’s HDG Architecture, designed the project.
