We are MAD about craft beer and we especially love to show the love to our local breweries.
So, for the month of March, instead of showcasing just one local brewery, we are promoting them all! Get happy hour draft pricing on all our local faves.
AND when you bring in a receipt or a coaster (autographed at the brewery), we will give you 10% off a growler fill or packaged beer from that brewery!
Check out our tap list here for a list of our draft beers and to see what local brews we have flowing!
Love your local beers!
We would like to announce our new “Hoppy Hour!” Every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4-6 PM, you can get $1 off all draft pints.
We love Craft Beer and we know you do too, which is why we would like to help you celebrate Valentine’s Day with some truly lovely brews. Come in and get those growlers filled up or take home a few bottles for yourself or that Special Someone.
Happy Valentine’s Day
Gluten-Free people rejoice! We have been trying to get a gluten-free beer on draft and we finally got a keg of the James Page (Stevens Point) A cappella Gluten-Free Pale Ale and we made sure to put it on a tap that has only run our ciders up until this point to ease your minds about any gluten sneaking in! We have all tried it and are seriously impressed at it’s true “beer-y” flavor. No wimpy, flavor-less beer here!
“JP’s A capella Pale Ale is packed with English-style hops for big time hop flavor. Go ahead, be heard singing your own tune, A cappella.”
BeerPulse.com had this to say: “JP’s A Cappella Gluten-free Pale Ale is brewed with sorghum and Cascade hops. The flavor profile is similar to that of traditional pale ale, Hopkins said, but the sorghum provides a distinctly different mouthfeel to the brew. “There are a number of gluten-free lagers on the market, but few gluten-free ales. We offer something different with this new gluten-free pale ale,” he said.”
So, bring in your growlers and your taste buds and get ready to enjoy a beer again.
We want to wish everyone a very Happy Holiday. We are open today (Christmas Eve) from 1-5 PM for your last minute beer-gift needs and we will be closed tomorrow for Christmas Day. Normal hours begin again on Thursday. We will be open on Monday from 3-8 PM and again on Tuesday next week for New Years Eve from 1-5 PM.
The staff at West Richland Beer and Wine Shop
We here at West Richland Beer & Wine Shop love Christmas. So, while we are stocking our shelves for your holiday beer buying, we are keeping the Yule season in mind. Starting on December 12th, we will be featuring a new beer each day on our Facebook page. If you haven’t “liked” us yet, click here and “like” us to start following and keep up with all the happenings. You can see what holiday beers we are recommending each day as well as keep up with all our fun events and shop info.
If you aren’t into the whole Facebook thing, that’s cool too. Check back here Saturdays in December for an updated list of our recommendations for that week.
Next week is a big one for us here at West Richland Beer & Wine. We are celebrating Thanksgiving Week by sharing some great beers with you.
River City Brewer’s Night
Tuesday, November 26th from 5-8 PM, we have River City Brewing in the house for a pre-Thanksgiving Brewer’s Night. If you haven’t had the beers from this Spokane brewery, you are in for a treat. We will be pouring their IPA, Riverkeeper Red as well as their Huckleberry. And for a very special treat, we will be pouring their limited edition, winter seasonal–Midnight Marmot Imperial Stout. As always there will be swag to win, so don’t miss this tasting.
Friday, the 29th, instead of celebrating Black Friday, we have made it more fun and dessert filled with “Pie Friday.” We will have complementary slices of pie to go with your pints. Friday hours are 3-9 PM.
Small Business Saturday
Saturday the 30th is Small Business Saturday. As a “thank you” to our wonderful customers who support small, local businesses, we will be tapping a very special, super Secret Squirrel keg. We are not going to tell what beer this is, so you’ll just have to come in and see for yourself.
Like a Phoenix from the ashes, so comes DevESTATEtion. Ok, so that’s a little dramatic, but we really like this bad-year in the fields turned great beer crafted by Sierra Nevada Brewery. No one can really explain it better than the brewery itself. Here is an excerpt from the brewery’s website:
“It’s a shame when good barley goes bad. This spring, the combined effect of double digit sustained winds and concentrated rainfall created major stress on the normal course of our barley maturation — our crop went down for the count. Instead of crying in our beer—or lack thereof—we decided to do one better and make something new. Featuring organic malts and our estate-grown wet hops, this black IPA is the evil twin of our legendary Estate Ale. Black in color with a mild roasty flavor and moderate body, this beer has a bold citrusy and earthy hop flavor and aroma from the use of our own wet hops. We’d never let one bad harvest get in the way of a great beer, so join us in a toast to the memory of our devastating season.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Come on in for a pint and growler fill while this great beer lasts and if all else fails, we have it in 22oz bottles too.
The weather in the Tri-Cities has gotten chilly and we have been ordering some winter beers to warm you up! On tap and in cans or bottles to go, we have some warm and cozy beers to keep you toasty and toasted. Just a few that have recently arrived include: Maritime Pacific’s Jolly Roger Christmas Ale, Fremont’s Abominable, No-Li’s Winter Warmer (on tap as well), Sierra Nevada’s Celebration and in limited quantities their Northern Hemisphere Harvest as well as their DevESTATEion Black IPA (on tap too), along with some Shiner Cheer, HUB’s Abominable and Pelican’s Bad Santa. Hurry on in and fill up those Growlers and take home some cans and bottles to get you through the cold nights. Pssst, we hear some snow may be on it’s way…
