New Boundary Brewing


505 S. 1st St., Cheney, WA

Opened: May 2015

The story: Shane Noblin, a longtime homebrewer who operated a supply store in Alaska, drove across the state scouting locations with wife Melanie before deciding to open Cheney’s first brewery since 1910.

The scene: The cozy taproom, in a former lube shop and equipment rental business downtown, is done up in mustard walls with dark brown woodwork. Distressed copper-coated steel covers the main bar and another along the front window, while tables are topped with a spray-on chalkboard coating that allows for creative doodling. A popular outside seating area already has been expanded, and an all-ages section has been added inside.

Food: In-house snack mix; delivery available from nearby Rokko’s Teriyaki and BBQ; occasional food trucks.

TVs: None

Live music: Acoustic performers planned.

Specials: Tuesday, $8 growler fills (on beers under 7 percent ABV); Thursday-Saturday, happy hour 2-6 p.m., $3 pints; 5/25 taster flights, five 5-ounce pours for $5.

Brewhouse size: Five barrels.

Taps: Nine

Beers: The regular lineup includes Providence Pale (5.8 percent alcohol by volume, 35 International Bitterness Units), Renegade Red (5.5, 25), Out of Bounds IPA (6.5, 90) and a Scotch ale (7, 27), with several rotating specialties ranging from porters to Belgian-style wit and dubbel to a non-hopped, herbed sour gruit. 

Other options: House-made Lemon Kick malt-based hard lemonade.

Don’t miss: The popular Scotch, which recently joined the full-time lineup, is rich and sweet but not cloying, with big toffee flavors accented by a light, lingering smokiness from smoked cherrywood malt.
