I was looking to buy some beer to take on my trip, they have lots of beer on tap if you have time to stick around and grab a bite to eat. They were sold out of many of their 650 ml bottles though, so I was only able to grab a 6 pack of the cream ale. Looking forward... More

After exploring the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge, we needed food and drink. Great choice! The raspberry beer and the pilsner I had were both excellent. Their flatbread? Yum!! They also have a 12 flag and Legion of Boom so we felt right at home. A hangout spot for locals that welcomes all.

Convenient to the main road; a somewhat "beer hall" type property but there is a good selection of local beer. Friendly service and a smallish menu. The items we had were very tasty.

A true local spot in the Sandpoint area that you need to visit on your next rip, or visit again if you're a local. They have recently added excellent wood-fired pizzas to their menu and it's worth a visit just for those. The selection of beer and wine is very good and the friendly staff makes you feel welcome. Take... More

Fred and Michelle have done an amazing job with this place. The staff is incredibly friendly and the atmosphere is fun. Super dog friendly. And did I mention the beer? It's awesome. I highly recommend the Alpha Dog and Rocket Dog.

More than dog tolerant actually dog friendly. Seems all staff members must love dogs. Treat them like a loyal customer. Dog treats. Great beer, friendly atmosphere. If you visit you have to look at the dog ode on the way to the bathrooms. The beer is awesome. You can order chip pretzel mix but no food (likely because food can... More

If your looking for a good brew pub in north idaho to have a quick beer this is a good bet. Clean, friendly place with a great selection of beers made on site and distributed throughout the region. I had their beers in Spokane a few times and stopped in here to meet friends before it was great. I was... More

Went with my wife for a few pints and loved it! Service was great, beer was excellent and the place makes you want to relax. Only low point is people bringing their dogs inside. I know, with a name like that it was to expect but still not my thing

We have been on the road for three straight years and visit as many small breweries as we can. This is the best. On the day we were there they had 13 different brews. While I was not able to sample all since this brewery is about an hour north of where we stayed, all the ones I tried were... More
