DRINK LOCAL

Raise a Glass!

Let’s toast our local beer, wine and spirits

Inlander Restaurant Week has been supporting the concept of Drink Local for a long time, and given the growth of our local craft beer, wine and distillery communities, we’ll be doing it for years to come.

There are a lot of reasons to Drink Local. It’s great for the local economy, supporting our friends’ and neighbors’ ventures from Spokane to Pullman, Sandpoint to Moscow, and all points in between. It’s great for the environment — when your favorite beer, wine or vodka only has to travel a few blocks or a few miles to get in your glass, your carbon footprint is dramatically lessened.

Most important — especially in the context of Inlander Restaurant Week — is the fact our local products just taste great. We live in a world-class spot for hops, wheat and grapes, and that comes through in our local libations.

Every Inlander Restaurant Week menu includes three Drink Local options for your perusal. (They’re listed on every restaurant’s menu.) We encourage you to tap into an old local favorite, or try something from the region for the first time. Cheers!

Dry Fly Distilling

Vodka | Gin | Whiskey | Bourbon

Est 2007 | Spokane, Wash.
Locally owned and Operated

Our Story

Dry Fly Distilling began with Don Poffenroth and a good friend, knee-deep in a Pacific Northwest river. The two friends discussed how fortunate they were to live, work, and play in one of the most amazing places on earth. That conversation hatched an idea to share their mutual love of hand-crafted spirits and the natural beauty and purity of the Northwest. Dry Fly Distilling was born.

Dry Fly embraces the farm to bottle approach for all of their products.  Grain is sourced from family farms located within 30 miles of the distillery. With each product consumers can be sure they are getting the finest spirits available and it is a totally grain to glass operation.
