I have received a lot of input over the last several weeks about new breweries in Northern Idaho.
First of all, I would like everyone to check out Beer d' Alene, This is a new website created by Russell Mann to track the craft breweries in the Coeur d'Alene, Idaho area. Also check out the companion Facebook Group Page. Russell was kind enough to provide me with information about two new breweries slated to open up in 2018. He also let me know that the Down Draft Brewing has re-opened under new management.
Check the list below of potential up and coming Idaho breweries including Bent Tree Brewing in Athol and Westwood Brewing in Rathburn. Thanks to Steve Armstrong, I have also added Clearwater Brewing in Kamiah. Special Thanks to Sheila Francis for telling me about the Matchwood Brewing and Utara Brewing both coming to Sandpoint. While researching breweries in Sandpoint, I found another planned brewery, Roots & Shoots Brewing.
