There's nothing wrong with having a brewery taproom in an industrial building (mind that the area was a little "rough"), but the inside did virtually nothing to redeem itself. The pourer was very nice, give a generous taste of all 3 beers (ALL 3!! :^( ) on tap and was quick to supply the free popcorn (only food option---but it's free). Although the greeting he gave me left me with the impression that I was the only one in the slightly crowded small room that he didn't know personally. From the tasters (poured in the same plastic cup) I decided the extra stout was the best, but after drinking some more of my full pour, realized it had the butter taste on the finish... At $3 for a beer, i guess the price is good, but don't compare price vs. quality.... The only reason I visited is that a friend had recommended the place to me knowing that I'm a "beer guy." With so many other options in the area, i can't recommend a visit.

I stopped by Budge Brothers on a Spokane pub crawl.

Located in a small nondescript industrial type complex. The tap room is austere at best.

Quality is OK. I thought the stout was the best.

Service is good. One of the friendly brothers serves the beer in plastic cups and is happy to talk about beer.

Selection limited to 4 Budge Brews.

Food was popcorn. That's it.

Value is very good. $7 or $9 for the growler fill depending on the brew. If you have a growler or a pig this is the pace to go.
