Slate Creek Brewing, Coeur D Alene Idaho

I spend a lot of time traveling away from where I live. It’s a bad habit that I am working on fixing. My first attempt to fix this behavior is by visiting local breweries near my home. It should not be too difficult for me, we know I like beer and due to my recent job loss I really should not be driving too far anyway… right?

Slate Creek Brewing is located off of 4th street in Coeur D Alene Idaho. I won’t lie to you – I had difficulty finding the place and I’m pretty familiar with Coeur D Alene… in fact, my former hair salon is connected to the building that houses this brewery. Should I be embarrassed, probably… was I – maybe a little.

The approach to Lewiston Idaho is quite impressive via Idaho Highway 95. As you crest over the hill you are greeted by an extensive overlook of the town. The highway zigzags down the mountainside while taking you to the valley floor. You start to think to yourself maybe you should visit more often.  And then it hits you… the smell. It is unforgettable.  If you have been to Lewiston you know what I am talking about. If not, consider bracing yourself as the local paper mill fills the valley with an unpleasant odor, that only logically can be dealt with by bracing yourself 🙂
