Thanks guys. Sounds like Hutch could be a good place to open a brew shop and maybe attempt to change the beer culture of the area. Start small, work with the local homebrew club. Perhaps a future Tap room. SWMBO may not be keen to the idea, but a guy can dream. If I remember correctly the water is not ideal to brewing. Hank Is Wiser has done well in Cheney, although as a brew pub, not a homebrew store.
I remember the Anchor Inn, and you are correct. The food is great.
