Spokane Craft Beer Week: Wednesday

Move over, hops – locally produced malt is in the spotlight for a busy third day of Spokane Craft Beer Week:  

– Newly rebranded LINC Malt (formerly Palouse Pint) hosts a tap takeover at Cochinito Taqueria from 5 to 9 featuring a half-dozen brews made with locally grown barley, wheat and triticale.

Those include Bellwether’s Mexican-style amber Cochinito Lager, brewed with lime juice and zest as the house beer for the downtown restaurant; Badass Backyard’s Marzen; Black Label’s Palouse ESB; a Summer Wheat from Genus Brewing (at Nu Home Brew & Bottles in Spokane Valley); the Steam Plant’s Boiler 5 red IPA; and Whistle Punk’s Baronesse Pilsner, named after LINC Malt’s main barley variety grown at Joseph’s Grainery in Colfax.

They’ll be accompanied by a pairing menu matching each beer with a different type of taco, along with free appetizers using produce from LINC farms. LINC maltster Joel Williamson and Joseph’s farmer Bill Myers will be on hand.

 Some 11 offerings will pour for IPA Day at Twelve String, with $1 off pints and growler fills.
