What's Hoppin' this Week? 10/17

Hello and thanks for visiting as always. I've got no extra wisdom to impart today, so let's get right to the events so we can all enjoy this unseasonably warm weather. Cheers!

Thursday, October 17th

- If you're looking for a way to drink beer and do some needed volunteer work, Second Harvest Food Bank is holding their October "Volunbeer" event with Fremont Brewing. The event/fundraiser starts goes from 5:30 to 8 pm. The first hour will be spent helping to sort food in the volunteer center and during the second half of the event, a member of the Fremont Brewing team will be on site pouring samples of several of their beers and after sampling, you get a full pour of your favorite. There will also be light appetizers. The event is $25 and space is limited so you can register on the Second Harvest website.

- Nectar's flight of the week features beers from Seattle's Holy Mountain brewery. Considered by many to be one of the best breweries in the state, their beer is not yet easy to find east of the Cascades, so it's a great opportunity to check them out. 6 to 8 pm. Facebook.

- Bellwether is hosting a pint night benefit for the local non-profit Spokane Edible Tree Project. $1 from every pint sold from 5 to 8 will be donated. Facebook.

Friday, October 18th

- Post Falls Brewing is hosting another Pie and Pints night. As usual they'll be paring their beers with hand-pies from Bean and Pie. You can shoot them a Facebook message to reserve mini pies or whole pies that you can pick up at the event. 5 to 7 pm. Facebook.

Saturday, October 20th

- Northern Idaho's newest brewery, Matchwood Brewing Company is holding their grand opening celebration from 2 to 10 pm at their new Sandpoint brewhouse. In addition to all the new beer, there will be food, music and a community fundraiser. Cheers to everyone involved. I can't wait to get out that way. Facebook.

- Also in Sandpoint on Saturday, Utara Brewing is holding their first annual Harvest Fest. They have invited several local breweries to pour their various Fall beers at the event and there will be a food truck on site to get everyone fed. Facebook.

- Legendary downtown Spokane watering hole, The Viking, is holding their "OktoBeerFest" starting at 5 pm. They will be featuring specialty Oktoberfest and pumpkin beers, as well as German food, tavern games and live music. $5 cover or bring a new or lightly used coat to donate to Coats4Kids and get in free.
