The Dirt: Renovations underway for new Twelve String Brewing Co. taproom

UPDATED: Sun., June 28, 2020

Twelve String Brewing Co. is one step closer to a new, larger taproom in Spokane Valley.

Owner Terry Hackler has filed a building permit application with the city to remodel a former Waste Management office building at 12122 E. First Ave. into a 3,900-square-foot taproom with a patio.

The taproom also will include a craft pizza restaurant, similar to The Flying Goat in Spokane, Hackler said.

Hackler is planning to relocate Twelve String from 11616 E. Montgomery Drive, Suite 26, to the First Avenue location by mid- to late fall.

“Right now, we are in a leased warehouse space, which is nice, but we are at the limit of what we can do there,” Hackler said. “In order to grow the business and keep moving forward, we needed our own space.”

Twelve String Brewing Co., founded in 2011, distributes beer in Eastern Washington and North Idaho, in addition to operating its Spokane Valley taproom.

A larger space will allow the brewery to potentially expand wholesale distribution, but its primary focus is brewing beer for the new taproom, Hackler said.

“We anticipate selling a lot more beer in-house rather than growing distribution,” Hackler said.

Hackler, a former general contractor, purchased the building on First Avenue in 2015 and has redesigned the building and installed a new roof since then.

The valuation for interior renovations is $75,000, according to the permit application filed with the city.

Mixed-use development weighed for Market Street A mixed-use development could be coming to Market Street in Spokane, according to a preliminary application filed with the city.

Spokane-based Trek Architecture filed the application on behalf of KPR LLC, whose principal is Matthew Barton, to build a 5,800-square-foot addition to an existing office building at 5612 and 5616 N. Market St. Plans also call for a 18,000-square-foot building with five to six individual tenant/incubator spaces for commercial and industrial use at 5520 N. Market St., according to site plans filed with the city.

Construction is anticipated to begin in the fall, according to plans.

The project valuation is $1.5 million, according to the application.

Self-storage facility and coffee stand plannedStorage Solutions has filed a preliminary application with the city to build a self-storage facility in Spokane Valley.

Pacland is a site and development consulting firm with offices in Seattle and Portland. The company filed the application on behalf of Storage Solutions for the project, which includes the self-storage facility, office space, RV wash and coffee stand at 19311 E. Appleway Ave.

Storage Solutions Spokane Valley LLC, whose principal is Brian Layton, purchased the 3-acre site for $680,000 in 2017, according to the Spokane County Assessor’s Office.

Storage Solutions has four locations in the Spokane area and a facility in Deer Park.
