I'm not sure whether or not anyone is still looking to follow this thread, but I thought that I'd share a few places that have been added to the roster of good places to find craft beer in the greater Spokane region.
Full Disclosure: I have recently opened my own beer bar in the Spokane area and though I don't have nearly as much experience with the craft beer scene as I would like, it is something that I personally enjoy very much and hope someday to be able to suitably pass along to my customers as well.
That said, there are four beer bars in Spokane worth noting: The Hop Shop (South Hill), The Viking Tavern (Just north of Downtown), Jones Radiator (Just east of Downtown) and [my place] Brews on Washington (Downtown).
With the exception of The Viking, all of these venues have a relatively small number of consistent taps/bottles and, instead, rotate their collections on a very frequent basis. The Viking has enough space to keep a rather more impressive ongoing selection available. The Viking's atmosphere has a pretty cozy, generic tavern layout with multiple TVs, pool tables, darts, etc. The other three are TV-free zones with relatively low music focusing on a place for conversation more than anything else.
Any of these four places are consistently great for dropping by for a quality craft beer. More often than not there is always at least one beer on tap that I've never seen offered before.
Here's to hoping that Spokane's craft beer offerings will only grow.
