Twelve String Brewing Co.

Price: $

Given the name of his craft-brewing operation, the instrument-filled décor of his vibrant Spokane Valley tasting room and the labels on his wide array of beers — Jam Session IPA, Drop D Stout and the like — Terry Fackler clearly has a maestro’s approach to his product. That tasting room typically keeps about 18 beers on tap, ranging from year-round favorites to adventurous experiments with fruits like mango, dry hops and barrel aging. Soon, Twelve String will be found at far more locations across the Inland Northwest, thanks to a new focus on distribution and a new Spokane Valley location Fackler recently bought that will also facilitate bottling a few 12 String favorites when it’s up and running.
