Skye Book and Brew; browsing and sipping

   Off the west coast of Scotland lies the Isle of Skye, famed for rock climbing, spectacular scenery, and hiding out Bonnie Prince Charlie from the English after the Battle of Culloden in 1746 (the prince spent most of the time in drag, dressed as a lady's maid).  A resident of Dayton down in the Palouse wheat country thought it would be fun to open a brewpub that commemorates this far off island, met another local who wanted to open a bookstore, and the result was this most unusual combination.
Inside, it really is a working bookstore as well as a working brewery and family-friendly restaurant.
And of course, there are pictures and souvenirs of the rugged island that inspired the name.
