Powder Keg Brewfest in Spokane

New this year, the Inlander has teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to put

on PowderKeg. The obvious benefit of bringing a nonprofit partner to the

team is adding a charitable element to a valued community event. Another

benefit, and one that multiple breweries and cideries brought up, is the

opportunity to pour your own product at PowderKeg again, connecting

directly with winter sports and beer enthusiasts.

Lumbersexual Scotch Ale Release

He gazes out over the vast urban landscape he calls home and sighs. Bending over to tie his RedWing boot's shoelace he thinks of what might have been. He should've followed Jennifer out to Montana that cool fall day. But alas, all he has left are his plaid shirts and struggling beard. Standing up and adjusting his man purse, he continues on. His lunch isn't going to post itself on Instagram. He is the Lumbersexual.
