Taste the Local Brew

North Idaho has a nice variety of microbeer breweries and wineries worth checking out.

Coeur d’Alene Brewing Company at 2nd & Lakeside Ave. in downtown Coeur d’Alene offers beer brewed on site and facility tours. One of the oldest microbreweries in the region, it was established in 1908.

Laughing Dog Brewery in Sandpoint features a tap room, daily tours and a gift shop.

In keeping with the town’s colorful past, visitors to the Wallace Brewing Company can enjoy Red Light Lager and Dirty Blond Ale in the whOrehouse Tasting Room.

For the largest selection of area micro-brews on tap, stop by Capone’s Pub and Grill located on 4th in midtown Coeur d’Alene and on Ross Point Road in Post Falls.

There are many popular North Idaho wine tasting events but if you aren’t here to catch one, Pend d’Oreille Winery (208-265-8545) in Sandpoint offers daily tastings of their award winning wines, live music Fridays and Saturdays, and a gift shop.

Coeur d’Alene Cellars (on Schreiber off Kathleen Ave. in Coeur d'Alene) is open for tastings at the winery.

Daanen’s Delicatessen (corner of Prairie and Government in Hayden, 208-772-7371) offers tastings every Friday night from 4:30-7:00pm and one of the best wine and beer selections in the region.
