Laht Neppur brews up Walla Walla locale


The wait is over for fans of Laht Neppur Brewing Co.

Local residents will get a chance to tap into the Waitsburg brewery's beers when it opens a new downtown Walla Walla location this evening at 5.

Owners Court and Katie Ruppenthal -- whose last name spelled backward inspired the name of the business -- will open on the corner of Spokane and Alder streets, according to a brief announcement on Laht Neppur's Facebook page.

The location in Waitsburg, 444 Preston Ave., is still expected to be the home base for the operation, as well as Court's brewing.

The downtown Walla Walla site is expected to feature five or six rotating brews and Laht Neppur's menu of pulled pork sandwiches, brats and more.


Construction may not be entirely complete, but that won't stop operators of Plumb Cellars from showing off their new tasting room this weekend.

Throughout the Fall Release weekend visitors to 9 S. First Ave. can get an informal introduction to the under-construction tasting room, as well as Plumb Cellars' wines.

Guests can try the wines, sign up for the winery's wine club and enjoy specials 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday through Sunday.

There's no tasting fee. For more details, visit or e-mail

A Walla Walla operation known for repurposing construction materials continues to build its presence with expanded hours.

The Builders ReSupply, 551 Lockheed, will now operate noon-3 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 9 a.m.-noon Saturday.

A subsidiary of the Walla Walla Sustainable Living Center, the Builders ReSupply gets its inventory from tax-deductible donations of materials from local contractors and the public.

The operation keeps those materials out of the landfill while also creating an array of items for general purchase at deeply discounted prices.

Products available include cupboards, doors, windows, plumbing fixtures, lighting fixtures, carpet padding, skylights, sinks, bathtubs and more. Photos of some items are available through the Sustainable Living Center's website -- .

A list of acceptable donations is also available through the site.

For more information about what's currently available in the store, call Construction Materials Coordinator Dan Mallery at 629-1638.
