Crafted Tap House + Kitchen

523 Sherman Ave., Coeur d Alene, ID

Crafted is the perfect name for one of the hottest spots on the area’s beer scene. Not only does the downtown Coeur d’Alene alehouse serve 50 impressively curated craft beers and ciders on draft, as much care has gone into the overall operation as the best brewers put into their products. Walking up to the former auto shop on Sherman Avenue, the first things you see are the big wooden sign with the winged keg logo and the large, lighted letters spelling out “CRAFTED” over the garage doors opening onto the spacious patio (featuring fire pits and heaters for cooler weather), with quotes on the facing wall from Henry Ford and Abraham Lincoln. Inside, it’s industrial chic to the max, with metal and wood everywhere, old mufflers hanging behind the bar and tap handles crafted (there’s that word again) from crankshafts and piston rods. An upscale pub-style menu features the likes of shrimp cakes, pork tacos and chicken and waffles alongside gourmet sandwiches and appetizers. Beer selections are listed on a huge chalkboard, color coded by category; if you want more info, each also has its own page in the iPads at every table. Mug club membership brings beer and food discounts, while a customer loyalty program earns ongoing rewards. Regular events include trivia night and $2 pints on Thursday and turtle races on Friday nights. An outdoor beer garden is open seasonally for special occasions. (10/15)
