Spring is back in Spokane as the weather slowly inches into the 70’s in the Inland Northwest there was finally a little bit of time to enjoy some draughts on the patio of Spokane’s most neighborhood friendly brewery, Perry Street Brewing Co. Located in the Perry District just off the South Hill of Spokane, Perry Street Brewing has been a local and family friendly staple since March of 2014.
This Memorial weekend I got to enjoy Perry Street’s awesome patio. Located curbside and facing Perry Street this patio offers great spring and summer enjoyment, with nearby shops and open skies hanging out here is a must for any local or traveler looking for a relaxing day. What’s interesting about Perry Street is that instead of flights they offer individual 4oz taster’s for $2 a taster. This gave me the opportunity to explore there Hazy, Sour, Milk Stout and German Helles all together ‘a la’ a flight.
While I do love Stouts, and especially Milk Stout’s, my favorite one had to be the Hazy Pale. Brewed with Pale Wheat and Golden Naked Oats boasting this beer made the best pairing for an afternoon in the sun, a perfect mix of a lush and juicy citrus this Hazy was easy to enjoy, and hard to put down.
It really is unfair to rank or play favorite to any one beer as all four of them were great. Milk Stout’s are rare to find at a local brewery and this one superseded most I’d had before, rather than the bold and heavy notes typically associated with a stout Perry Street brews this Milk Stout with raisins and prunes and pours it on nitro to give it more of a velvety finish than the dry robust flavor of most stouts.
Their sour which is a rotating fruit sour was also quite enjoyable, it was like the perfect sweet and sour mix you’d get from a sour patch kid. The German Helles is a bit tougher to describe for me as it was a beer I’d never tried before, I can tell you it was almost too easy to drink especially for being over 5% it went down very much like a lager or pilsner, so simply put it was a very crisp, clean, and refreshing drink.
The inside of Perry Street offers TV and sports viewing which we all know how much we love that here at Sports on Draft; plus a clear window view into their brewhouse. Another cool feature here at Perry Street is how often they do rotate there taps, each time I’ve been here they have a slightly different variety, never abandoning their staples but always throwing something else on the board and into the tap.
Another great staple to Perry Street Brewing is the food, served either in a wrap or a bowl they host numerous ‘Southwest’ styled cuisine options cooked fresh in the taproom’s kitchen. Of course appetizers as always, but don’t sleep on the chips with qeuso, or guacamole!
If you’re new to the area or coming through Spokane for a weekend be sure to enjoy the afternoon and friendly neighborhood community Spokane’s Perry Street Brewing Co. has to offer, I guarantee you won’t regret it
