Travel north of I-90 for a mile on Argonne Road into Millwood, WA, a small town sandwiched between Spokane and the City of Spokane Valley, and you’ll come across a wine and beer shop that, frankly, isn’t much to look at from the outside. But what they haven’t spent on sprucing up the exterior, they’ve put in to a rather fine inventory. As usual, I didn’t spend much time perusing the wine, but I did fill up an empty wine box with a nice selection of 22oz bombers.
I stopped at Bottles on my way in to Spokane for a weekend trip recently after finding it in a google search for a new place to seek out. On my last trip back in June, I scoped out Enoteca in Post Falls, ID. Where Enoteca focused largely on 22oz bombers, Bottles has a nice mix of both 22oz bombers and 12oz singles ready for mixing and matching. I’m always seeking new-to-me places like Bottles on my trips out of state because they’ve always got things I can’t get in Montana. And Bottles did not disappoint. Sure, there’s quite a few I’ve had before and can get in Missoula, but there were more than enough new ones to make me smile.
Check it out for yourself and you’ll find beer from Rogue, Dicks, Great Divide, Flying Dog, Anderson Valley, Lagunitas, Oskar Blues, Victory, Dogfish, Bear Republic, Red Tail, Mad River, Beer Valley, Ninkasi, Stone, Hopworks, Old Schoolhouse, Iron Horse and many more.
