Update 9/15/2023 — The new location is now open. Also, The original location remains open.
Original Post: Currently, Humble Abode Brewing is aptly named. The brewery and taproom are located in a nondescript, no-frills building on a side street in North Spokane. Humble Abode is about to lose its humility, though. Don’t worry, I am sure it will remain friendly and welcoming, two traits for which the brewery and its owners have earned a reputation.
A report in yesterday’s Spokesman-Review revealed that Humble Abode Brewing will take over the space vacated earlier this year when Common Language Brewing closed. That short-lived brewery, which was only open for about a year, built out its space in the historic Chronicle Building at the corner of Sprague and Monroe.
Humble Abode will take over the gorgeous taproom along with the brewing equipment that Common Language left behind. Marble floors, elegant lighting, big windows. It’s a beautiful space within a beautiful building. The folks within it might be humble, but the abode is not.
Keep an eye on Humble Abode Brewing’s social channels to find out about an exact opening date. The original location remains open.
The former home of the Spokane Daily Chronicle, the building was constructed in 1928 and was considered an architectural marvel for its time. It is an example of Gothic Revival. The newspaper’s archives are still housed in the basement and the gargoyles are still on the roof. About five or six years ago, developers reimagined and repurposed the building. It now offers retail on the street level and apartments on the upper levels.
The new location will make Humble Abode Brewing the newest addition to Spokane’s West End Brewery District. There will now be seven breweries in the district. About a year ago, we published a story about beer touring in Spokane’s West End. Read it here.
