Hidden Mother Brewery will begin renovating a North Washington Street building into a Spokane taphouse, according to permits issued by the city.

The Liberty Lake-based beer making company will turn the former Fleet Feet Sports store, 1311 N. Washinton St., into a 15-barrel brewhouse. The work is valued at $250,000.

The brewery was started by Mike Detar a year ago, and has since grown in popularity. It focuses on barrel-aged wild ales, and Detar plans to increase production quickly at the new site.

The brewery won both gold and silver medals in the experimental category at the 2018 Washington Beer Awards, for its Pine Tree Peppercorn Saison and Morel Mushroom Red.

The project’s general contractor is Yost Gallagher Construction, of Spokane. It was designed by Russell Page Architects, also of Spokane.
