Small place but a neat one. Came on a MNF with Seattle playing and was really fun. Server was attentive and always helping everyone. Wide array of taps so there is bound to be one for you.

This is a nice little tap room. Twelve beers on tap with another from the cask. Friendly service. The theme is guitar, guitar, guitar and music; from the decor to the beer names. I had a porter and pale ale. The Arpeggio Pale Ale was outstanding. The place seems to be popular with a local crowd. The owners seemed to know almost everyone by name as they came in.

I stopped at the taproom for a couple of pints and a growler fill after work.

12 String is in an industrial complex off of Pines in the Spokane Valley. Atmosphere is nice for a taproom. There is seating for 12 at the bar, and about 10 high tables, as well as a few tables in a patio area just outside the front door. Total seating for about 60 I guess. Flat screen TV. The place is nicely painted and decorated with the guitar theme. They have a lot of gear shirts glassware etc. for sale The place is kind of noisy when more than about half full or so.

The quality is very good. I have had Twelve String brews around town, and at a beer fest, and they are all quite good.

The service was a little slow. The bar keep didn't seem to be real attentive. I sat dead center of the bar for about 5 minutes and finally had to speak to get his attention.

The selection included 11 Twelve String taps, with 5 wines and a cider selection.

Food I did not try, but it was limited. Choices were a hummus plate, meat and cheese plate, peanuts, chips and salsa.

For value I would like to say it's reasonable, and in some ways it is. Some pints were $4 with is a good price these days, but some were $5 which I wouldn't really expect in a taproom. The growler fill was $17 and that seems steep to me. But again the quality is quite good and the place had a pretty good crowd for a Friday afternoon, so whatever the market will bear.

Twelve String isn't exactly on my beaten path, so I doubt visits to the tap room will be very common. But it's worth a stop if you are out that way.
