Big Taste. Small Brew.
Boise Brewing may not be the largest brewery in town, but that means a little more love goes into each batch. And brewing smaller will give us the flexibility to make sure there’s something different on draught every time you come down to the tap room. We also want to support local farms and businesses. From using local ingredients like honey and fruit, to donating our spent grains to area farmers, we want to be an important part of the community. To top it off, all our beers are vegetarian-friendly and crafted with free-range grains!
Hip Check – IPA
This dry hopped American IPA is a celebration of Northwest brewing tradition. Big, bold hop character resonates throughout this beer from the aroma to the finish. Around 35% of the entire world’s hop supply comes from the Pacific Northwest so we are proud to produce a beer that celebrates our region. High alpha hops intermingle with traditional varieties to produce a unique but recognizable hop character that is undeniable to the palate. Bold, yet balanced this brew will appease your inner hop hound. Too many Hip Checks and you’ll have runs in your fishnets, too.

Down-Down – Extra Pale Ale
An Extra Pale Ale designed for hanging with friends in mind. Down-Down EXP is an easy drinking ale with enough character to be the life of the party. This brew is perfectly balanced with enough hop character to let you know it’s a craft brew but light enough that anyone can enjoy it. Smooth, crisp and refreshing, this is a brew that can be enjoyed no matter what the season. Pairs well with running. And also with not running.
Hard Guy – Saison
Saisons are farmhouse-style ales, traditionally brewed for farm workers with ingredients harvested right on the farm. A perfect platform to celebrate local. Hard Guy is brewed at a higher temperature than most typical ales which encourages the specialized yeast to get funky with its bad self. This produces a range of character including fruity, tart, and maybe even a hint of sourness. Sometimes you need to drink outside of the box, this brew will help you do just that. The first of many saisons.
Boise Brewing is supporting the local brewing community by operating as an incubator for up and coming brewers. When you come by the tap room, it’ll be like visiting several breweries at once. And we’re excited to see what Dave Krick, our first tenant will be brewing up.
‘Tis the Season for Saisons!
Boise Brewing is Idaho’s first brewery specializing in saison style ales. Saisons are French/Belgian ales traditionally brewed on farms to refresh workers during the harvest season. Because the ingredients were as local as you can get and because of the room for variation, we feel it’s the perfect fit for Boise.
