What's Hoppin' this Week? 7/10

It's that time of week again beer fans. Summer is rushing by as usual, but there is still time to stop and enjoy the hops. First off a bit of housekeeping. As you have heard if you follow my social media, I have recently taken over as the writer of the Spokesman-Review's On Tap Column. I will be putting out monthly columns to start, highlighting all that the local beer scene has to offer. It will definitely be a lot of learning as I go, but I am excited for the challenge. Don't worry though, the blog isn't going anywhere. I will still put out the weekly What's Hoppin' posts and all my social media will still be through this blog, but my partnership with the Spokesman will hopefully increase readership and engagement and improve my ability to bring you the best possible coverage of beer in the Inland Northwest. Without further ado, on to the events. Cheers! 🍻
