Life is Too Short to Drink Bad Beer: The Ale Trail Starts Here

Nothin’ pairs better with an overnight getaway than cold beer and good company.

That’s exactly what guests of The Davenport Lusso receive. Adjacent to the Post Street Ale House and situated amid the city’s vibrant arts district, The Lusso offers the sense of being right in the middle of it all, yet tucked away enough where peace and quiet are easily achievable.

But what truly makes The Lusso special is the one, the only, the Ale Trail. The“The Inland Northwest Ale Trail” is an adventure for beer aficionadas, assisting them as they explore new craft breweries here in the Northwest. The coolest part of it all? The Ale Trail starts with us at the Post Street Ale House. We’ll drink to that!

Experience a fun pub, good grub and over 26 brews rotating on tap at our unique Ale House. Loyal to the craft, our alternating selections feature the best local brews in our area. Print the Ale Trail Map online or find out more about downloading the free mobile app here:

As we said: killer beer and an overnight escape go hand-in-hand. Guests can book our ‘Ale Trail Package’ which includes an Overnight Guest Room at The Davenport Lusso, Valet Parking and a $25 Dining Credit at the Post Street Ale House. Just brew it!

While you’re here, be sure to say hello to Ninkasi. If you look above the bar at Post Street Ale House, you’ll see the sculpture of the women watching over our restaurant. Yep – that’s Ninkasi alright.

“Ninkasi is the Sumerian goddess of brewing and beer and head brewer to the gods themselves. Her name means ‘the lady who fills the mouth,’ and her birth was formed of sparkling-fresh water. She who bakes with lofty shovel the sprouted barley, she who mixes the bappir-malt with sweet aromatics, she who pours the fragrant beer in the lahtan-vessel that is like the Tigris and Euphrates joined! Yes, she. Early brewers were primarily women, Mesopotamian men, of some 3,800 years ago, were obviously completely clueless and had yet to realize the pleasure of brewing beer.”

Oh Ninkasi, how we love you.

Fried pickles await and cold brews are being poured: the Ale Trail is calling – why wait?
